Commanding Officer's Parade, Promotions and Awards Night and One Night Sleep-Over  

Arrival Time:  1850 (Fri)
Dismissal Time:  1600 (Sat)
Location:   John Graves Simcoe Armoury
 

CO's Parade is our final opportunity to inspect everyone's uniforms and suggest improvement before the Annual Ceremonial Review which is the following weekend.

Be in your best Dress Uniform (DEU C1) with boots that show your effort. If your boots are new, they must show that you are working on them and a shine is coming through. If you have been in uniform for a few months to a couple of years, your boots should have a noticeable shine. Sgts and up should have boots that set the example.

Make sure your badges are in the proper location. The diagrams are found on our website at www.Rangers2799.com in the Uniform section. If you have any questions, as a senior cadet!!

The sleep-over following the CO's Parade will allow us much time on Sat to work on uniforms (bring your shine and sewing kits!), drill and the demonstrations.

We will also have some time for some leadership and team development.

  DEU C1 Friday, Civies on Sat
