Sunday 30 June: Race for Life at Stoneleigh Park

This Sunday, instead of our routine parade at the airport, the whole Squadron will be deploying to Stoneleigh Park to assist with Cancer Research's Race for Life fun run.  84 Sqn has been assisting with the events for 5 years now, when we can be found at the finishing line supporting the competitors as they complete their challenge, handing out well-earned water, medals and goodie-bags.

This year, the a team of girls from the Squadron will be taking part in the 5km Fun Run.  Flying Officer Chapman and Cadet Dhanjal will then go on to complete the 10km run.

Cadets and staff are to get themselves to the main entrance (ignore special event direction signs) for between 0930 and 0945 hrs.  Dress for the support crew is No 3 (CS95 DPMs), whilst the runners will can wear their own sports kit with their specially created t-shirts.  Runners are also to bring DPM trousers, boots and beret to wear after the race.

Those cadets unable to stay for the whole day may be collected from the main entrance at 1300hrs.  Everyone else is encouraged to help see the event through by staying until 1500hrs.  Everyone should bring suntan cream, and either a small packed lunch or money to buy something from the on-site catering wagons.

Annual Dinner and Awards Night

Our Annual Dinner was held at the Holiday Inn (Coventry South) on Friday night, in the presence of Air Marshal Sir Tim Jenner KCB. A full report will follow, but photos of the prizewinners are available for viewing on our Facebook page.

The OC would like to thank the flexibility and patience with the Staff at the Holiday Inn for dealing with the unusual format of a military-style dinner, and in particular Fg Off Chapman for a lot of running around the county all day Friday, and to Mr Walton and Cdt Walton for help with setting-up the room.
