Summer Zoom Meetings:
Hello 102 Squadron!
For this upcoming Monday, August 10th at 1855hrs we will need to you log on to your level zooms for some exciting news! Your new level officers and NCO’s would like to spend some time with you before you head out to the seminar/info session that you have signed up for. What? When did I sign up? Not to worry, you are required to sign up this week for this upcoming Monday’s classes. There will be six classes available, but you can only sign up for one. The first 10 participants to sign up will get their first choice, others can still put their names down, but you will be required to sign up for another topic. They are all very informative and fun!

Vacation Collage Contest: Who is missing traveling right now? The travel club vacation collage contest recently closed. This challenge was to put together a collage of a dream vacation that we could post on Facebook for voting purposes. The collage could be based on personal vacations that already happened, or ones that we would love to embark on in the future.
During our last meeting the collages were discussed and explained. Some dream vacations were planned to the day while others were more relaxed and carefree. Please look over the collages and pick your favourite, no rules or criteria, just what collage appeals to you the most. Click here for a Google Form to submit your vote.
The travel club is still looking for more members: if this collage activity looked fun please join us for our next meeting on Tuesday August 11th at 1830 using the Level 3 zoom login! Our discussion will be about amusement parks. Hope to see you there!
Aviation Club: Do you like flying? Do you like space? Do you like making model rockets? Then the aviation club is for you! We cover all sorts of aviation topics that may interest you.

Duke of Edinburgh Program: Attention all cadets between 13 ½ to 14 years old. (Any age up to 25 can join this program) This coveted program is still running and is open to rolling enrollment. As an award participant, you will have the chance to design your own Award program, set your own goals and record your progress, make a positive impact on the lives of others through community service, as well as learn valuable practical and social skills for career development.
You can continue with activities you’re already doing, such as sports or volunteering, and count these towards achieving your Award. Or your Award could be an opportunity to try something new and develop a passion for something different.

COVID-19 Aide-Memoire: To aid in education about COVID-19 and help prepare us for the eventual return to in-person activities, an aide-memoire has been posted on our website. It is your responsibility as cadets to stay informed, so please read it thoroughly to protect your safety and that of others.
Squadron Activities: Check out all the amazing online squadron activities and videos! We are publishing videos that include Fitness Challenges, Uniform Tips, Wellness Tips, Outdoor Survival Tips, Vlogs and more. Cadets will continue to create content over the summer, so stay tuned! Check out the “Current Activities” Tab then click on YouTube Playlists!
With that in mind, it’s certainly not too late to start with new challenges or content, and participation in existing ones is highly recommended!
Have an awesome summer 102! We look forward to seeing everyone in upcoming online training and activities and in September!
