Day – 2

Today the Commander, Maine Wing, Colonel Marc Brunelle made a visit  to encampment during  closing formation.  One of the highlights of the day was PT, we had a long run, about one mile (5280 feet), all cadet successfully completed the run.  Also some cadets had orientation flights  (this is a free flight that is both  fun and instructional activity conducted at about 3000 feet above sea level) (regrettably there are no pictures of these flight activities) here are some pictures of the other activities of the day.

Day – 0

A new day, and new  young faces! Cadets have gone through some intense in-processing  and eaten lunch. Lunch was a hearty meal of PB&J sandwiches and fresh fruit. The day has gone as planned  with some drill and classes, and the Air Force song taught to and sung (off key) by all cadets (but that will be fixed).

Pictures to follow.

Encampment 2013

Staff should arrive at the encampment site no earlier than 3pm on the 16th of August and no later than Noon on the 17th. The wider range this year is due to scheduling conflicts with some of the buildings, we may not have the facility’s full use until midday on the 17th.

First and second year cadets not on staff should arrive after 1100 on the 19th and before 1300. Please let me know if alternate arrangements are needed.

The student release form is required for those under 18 to participate in rappelling, this form may be hand carried to the encampment or, scanned and emailed.

Graduation will take place at 1200 on the 28th of August, followed by check out immediately following that ceremony. Once again, if alternate arrangements are needed please let me know. Those attending the graduation should wear service dress or appropriate civilian attire. The cadets will graduate in blues unless it rains.

Special dietary requirements (no gluten, vegetarian, kosher, halal, etc.) should be disclosed as soon as possible, as it may not be possible to accommodate all situations, and even less possible at the last minute.
