I hope that you enjoyed the Practice Expedition as well as finding it challenging. Well done on completing it.
You have had your individual feedback sessions which I hope that you found useful. If you would like to discuss anything further then please do not hesitate to contact myself, FS Hensby or Flying Officer Ross.
I appreciate that the first session last Tuesday was taken up with feedback sessions but it was felt by the DofE team that it was important to do them before commencing the route planning. You do still need to ensure that as a team you are sufficiently prepared for your qualifying expedition and a number of you have missed Fridays parade (the whole group 1 were absent) so you will need to ensure that you are available for the remaining sessions to have a chance of finishing this work:
*Tuesday 25th July 201*
Route Planning for Qualifying Expedition
*22nd August 2017*
Route Planning for Qualifying Expedition & Kit Check
I am happy to arrange an additional Wednesday if required prior to the expedition itself but you must make every effort to attend the programmed dates first.
As always, for the *full* kit check you will need to attend in the clothing and boots that you are going to walk in and bring all the items on the kit list (apart from any food or water). The Kit list is available on the squadron website if you need another copy.
If you are unable to attend on any of the dates outlined above please ensure that you let me know directly beforehand as well as putting a leave app in.
If you have hired any equipment please keep it until after the qualifying expedition (unless you have to swap tents over) and if you need to hire or buy any additional kit or equipment please hand in a completed hire form as soon as possible with the appropriate hire fees in an envelope so that we have time to get your equipment ready for the kit check.
The following cadets still need to pay outstanding monies by the end of the month – please check with the Treasurer if you are unsure how much:
– Carlin – McNulty – Robinson – Westray – Barr – Williams – Moore
Please also hand in your consent form as soon as possible as well so I don’t need to chase them on again on the day.
