Christmas Quiz and Social 2012

Once again, the Squadron's Annual Christmas Quiz will be happening at Baginton Royal British Legion* from 1000 onwards on Sunday 16 December 2012.

Santa had the answer on the tip of his tounge...

Parents, committee members and other friends of the Squadron are invited to join us to challenge the Cadet and Staff teams.

There is no charge, but each cadet has been tasked with providing a platter of food for the buffet, and drinks will be available (at the Legion's great rates!) from behind the bar.

So come and take part, test your knowledge and enjoy time to celebrate the festive season with the Squadron and it's wider family. I look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible!

(* Yes, they really are expecting us this year!!)

Parents: Transport Needed Tonight!

Our minibus has been temporarily 'grounded' as a result of a 'supply chain error' at the garage, and won't be available to transport us to the RAeS Lecture in Coventry this evening.

Could you help ensure this activity can still take place by providing a lift to a car-full of cadets? Options are to stay for the lecture, to drop-off only, or to pick-up only. Please let me know ASAP if, and how, you can help - You can contact us by phone, email or at the least, by walking through the door and offering help later!
