CALGARY STAMPEDE CADET BOOTH 2016
1. Once again RCSU (NW) in cooperation with the Calgary Stampede and the Department of Defense will team up to provide an opportunity to promote the Canadian Cadet Organizations to the general public during the Calgary Stampede. 2. The general outline presents two daily shifts of CIC/COATS Staff, League / Sponsor members as well as THREE Cadets, preferably cadets of multiple elements per shift. These “staff” are able to present the best of our program to the general and international public. They will interact with local, regional, national and international members of the public to inform them what our programs are all about.
3. The booth will contain paraphernalia from all three elements including a Sailboat to represent the Sea Cadets, the Flight Simulator for Air Cadets, and a Kayak, Mountain Bike and Climbing Gear for the Army Cadets. We also highlight common training items (biathlon, music, and marksmanship) as well.
4. Through the gracious donations from the Air Cadet and Army Cadet Leagues, we are also able to provide SWAG to give away to interested parties with CADETS.CA emblazoned on them.
5. We are once again looking for SCREENED LEAGUE VOLUNTEERS (one per shift) and CADET VOLUNTEERS (3 per shift) to provide assistance throughout stampede. The ADULT & CADET sign up is available on Facebook. By searching for “CALGARY STAMPEDE CADET INFORMATION BOOTH 2016” and follow the instructions.
