Ready for some fun and put your training to the test……LASER TAG HERE WE COME APRIL 29TH

Cadets will have the opportunity to use their leadership skills and work as a member as a team. This isn’t your normal laser tag game, the cadets will have to strategize and plan their game.

Cadets will be in groups of 10 and having a round robin, so if you cant make it there till 1830 that’s ok cadets will be put in groups and get to play at least 2 games each.

Cadets can also purchase dog tags for a discounted rate of $5, name, rank and serial number (or which ever they prefer)

Food and drinks will be provided at 1900-2000

Battlefield Live offers thrilling, interactive combat themed games suitable for everyone from age 8 to 80+. No specialist knowledge is required and whether a first time player or regular visitor we guarantee you a great time.

Using the very best, high quality, state of the art gaming equipment we can ensure you have a realistic yet fun and exciting day out. The high tech infra-red operating system is 100% safe meaning you don’t have to wear any special equipment.

This is truly a team game where players learn to rely on other team members to accomplish the mission objectives.  There are no individual scores or rankings. Rather players can check out their own statistics in real-time.  We strive to create a safe and fun environment where people can experience the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat.

Located in the Northland Village Mall, we are the only indoor location in Alberta allowing us for year round, indoor gaming action!

Park at the back of the mall and use the CORA entrance doors. Then turn Right and its in the middle of mall.

Are you going skiing??….some important information

If you are one of the many going skiing on Sunday, March 22, you need to be at the Tim Hortons at the North end of Airdrie (by the Superstore) by 6:15.  The bus will be leaving at 6:30.

We should be back by 5:30pm.  Please be on time to pick up your cadets.

Make sure you dress for the weather.  Keep in mind that while it may be warm in Calgary, it won’t be up at the mountain…..and what the temperature is at one part of the hill, it won’t necessarily be at another part.

Silent Auction Dine and Dance time again!!!!

Dear 3016 Cadet Parents,

It is with great excitement and anticipation that our Parent Committee will be hosting a Silent Auction dine & dance on May 2nd, 2015. In the past, this type of event has raised up to $10,000 which helps offset the costs incurred by our Corps, such as, school rentals, bus rentals, fun day activities, etc.

Not only is this a great fundraiser, but a fun night out for the parents. It also promotes the Cadet Corps to the community when the kids canvass local businesses for silent auction items.

To make this night a success, each Cadet is required to sell 2 admission tickets ($30.00each) and he or she will be responsible for getting 1 or more items for the silent auction with an approximate value of $50.00. Attached you will find a donation letter that your cadet can use when canvassing local businesses, as well as some suggestions on types of businesses to approach. Please ensure your cadet gets a business card or Letter head from the donator, as we will run a powerpoint during the dinner to promote those businesses that supported us. Also, it is strongly recommended that younger cadets be accompanied by an adult or older sibling when approaching businesses for donations.

Please make note-

*  Professional DJ

* The dinner will be roast beef, roasted potatoes, salad, and a bun

* We will only be accepting cash or check for Silent Auction Payments(bank machine on site)

*  the venue has handicap accessibility

* May 2nd, 2015 at the “Over Time Lounge,” 200 East Lake Crescent NE, Airdrie.

* Cocktails at 6, dinner served at 7pm

* Raffles and door prizes

* Lots of fun, fun, fun!!!:)

Also we will need some volunteers for the following,

2 front door ticket takers(5:30pm- 6:30)

2 Raffle ticket sellers(6-7pm)

6 ticket sellers for 50/50 draw and Texas Mickey Raffle(through out the evening)

4 volunteers for the Set up crew (2pm)

1-2 cadets to make the powerpoint presentation (prior to event)

Tickets will be sent home soon, so please ask your cadets if you don’t receive them, as they will have to sign for them.

Should you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me, the.hair.room@hotmail.com or 403-479-9376…

Thank you for your support!!!
