ATTENTION ON DECK!!!!!

Good day all,

Drill this month will be different.  We are holding drill at Lake Pleasant on January 11th & 12th (Saturday and Sunday).  This is a mandatory training of the new year as we will be getting ready for Flagship.  This is an All hands-on deck drill.  This will also be an overnight training.  Training cost is $20.  Attached you will find orders that need to be completed and a copy of the medical history that needs to be updated for all cadets ( By the Parents), especially if you are going, and the required sea bag list.  Saturday Dinner and Sunday Breakfast and lunch will be provided. 

We will be mustering at the Home Depot on 2650 W Thunderbird Road, Phoenix, AZ 85023 @ 0700.   From there we will head to Lake Pleasant.  We may need to carpool to get everyone there.    We will be ending training at 1500 on Sunday afternoon.  If you want to pick up your cadet at Lake Pleasant you may, otherwise we will be back at the Home Depot to drop off cadets to pick up by 1600.  Prior arrangement to pick up at Lake Pleasant is required and you must be prompt picking up your Cadet!  Otherwise, we are wheels up at 1500 and will see you back at the Home Depot around 1345. As a reminder, with the weather being cold, bring an extra blanket for your sleeping bag and a ground cloth.  We will also be doing coursework and testing this weekend as well.

COURSEWORK, COURSEWORK, COURSEWORK!!

Planning and preparing, it is important to start schedule your time wisely to maintain a good balance of schoolwork and Sea Cadet coursework. Working on it on a regular basis will allow you to take it in smaller pieces over time to get it all done without a lot of grief. Set a personal goal to be able to turn in at least 2 (or more) assignments every drill. This will help put you on the fast track to promote quickly through the program. If there are any issues with coursework that has been submitted be sure to let ADMIN know, but be sure to let you LPO/Division Officer know FIRST!

Do you have your PQS done yet? All cadets should be able to complete Level 1 introduction to PQS within the first three drills after joining. Level 2 PQS is for all cadets to prepare them for recruit training and should be completed before RT if possible and not longer than their first year in the program. If you don’t have them completed, plan on getting them caught up ASAP.
