NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
In Person Training Paused
The recent announcement from Premier Kenny regarding the new COVID-19 restrictions will be applying to in person training for cadets. Effective Friday November 13th, no in person training will be conducted. This includes Thursday parade nights and Sunday Marksmanship practices. All Thursday training will continue virtually only until January. Marksmanship will be paused for 2 weeks and then re-evaluated. Cadets are encouraged to stay current in their star level groups and Marksmanship group as we move forward. Stay safe!
This year's Remembrance Day may not be the same as it has been in past years but that should not stop us from taking the time to remember. Thanks to MCpls Becker T and Becker L as well as Cpl Becker, here are some suggestions on what you can do instead:
One thing you can do is donate to the Veterans Association Foodbank, or even a cash donation. (https://veteransassociationfoodbank.ca/)
Another way could be to watch a world war documentary or a historically accurate film with your family. Global Edmonton is broadcasting a 30 minute program for No Stone Left Alone at 10:30am.
You can also take the time to visit one of the many fields of honour found in various cemeteries around the city and give your thanks and Remembrance to a veteran buried there.

In Person Classroom Training Starts November 5th
We are happy to report that we have been approved to begin in person training. Classes will be instructed using a hybrid model starting November 5th. A maximum of 5 Cadets per star level will be selected for attendance in person. Check out the blog for more information on the differences between in person and virtual training.
Cadets selected for in person classroom training must have completed their COVID-19 Awareness training (see below) and their Annual Validation Form (for returning cadets) prior to November 1.
Be sure to have read the COVID Aide de memorie so you understand how training has changed. In addition, keep an eye on the blog page for information for those attending in person and what to expect when you arrive at the corps.
Unable to attend training?
Are you uncomfortable attending in person training? Are you missing the resources needed to attend virtual training? Current cadets that are unable to attend in person or virtually due to unique personal circumstances can contact the cadet corps about retaining their membership at the unit and completing lessons through an independent learning program. Arrangements are on a case by case basis.
