This email contains a lot of information. Please review it carefully. Direct any questions to me or your flight commander.
Reminder, the weekly announcements no longer contain General Orders. A memorandum that contains the standing orders all members are expected to follow regarding participation in the meetings of the unit is attached for your review. Nothing new or unexpected, you should have seen this stuff before in previous announcements. The memo is filed for future review on the MEMBERS ONLY side of the squadron webpage under the SQUADRON PUBLICATIONS tab. You must use your CAP email to access this section.
The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge has run its course in pop culture; however there is bound to be a resurgence at some point. Please review the attached memo from the National Commander. Basically, don't do the Challenge or anything like it in uniform!
Officers should review their professional development portfolios and determine if they need to attend a wing conference. The Ohio Wing Conference is October 30, 31 and November 1 in Sharonville, Ohio. For more details, see the Wing's webpage. http://conference.ohwg.cap.gov/
Thursday night's is the second installment of our model rocketry module! Attached to another email will be the CAP Rocketry Program Guide. We will start with a safety briefing on rocketry.
We are going to need a few more manual labor days over at Grays Armory to get us back in their good graces. If you are available during the week let me know? Otherwise keep your eyes and ears peeled for one or two Saturdays this month. We can do lunch again from the sandwich shop around the corner, Rothchild Farms. Sandwiches were about $7.
A word about achievements and promotions. Do yourself a favor -- knock out the promotion requirements long before the time in grade requirement. Procrastination is not a core value!
As for Thursday night, we have a full schedule and things to accomplish. Everyone needs pitch in and do their part to make Thursday, "Must See!"
Cadets, If you have never been tailor measurement taped for uniform sizes please PRINT OUT the BLANK uniform size sheets and bring them with you. This was mentioned in last week's meeting notice. The sheet is one of the attachments to this email.
Cadets Ferguson and Frolo are scheduled for Orientation Flights on Saturday morning at Cuyahoga County Airport. Awesome! We expect pictures on Facebook!
Lastly, let's remember September 11, 2001, as a day our Republic was attacked; however let's make Sept 11, 2014, like every day since, a day our Republic is again renewed because of your dedication to Civil Air Patrol's core values and our Nation's founding principles.
