Cadet Competition Kick-off and Informational Day!! Sunday 30 October 2022

Because there may be squadrons with little to no experience, we are holding an NCWG Cadet Competition Kick-off and Informational Day on Sunday, 30 October from 0900 to 1500 at Wing HQ.  This is NOT mandatory, but designed to help squadrons get their teams up and running.  We will cover the individual events and discuss the best way to prepare for the competition. Please click on this link to register for the NCWG Cadet Competition Kick-Off and Informational Day on 30 October 2022.
