YEAR END MESS DINNER

The Year End Mess Dinner will be held on Saturday, June 10, 2017, directly after the ACR. Due to the size of our Corp and the facility, this will be a Cadet only dinner. We will require a $20 deposit for each dinner ticket to assure attendance. This will be refunded to the Cadet at the dinner if the Cadet attends, or forfeited if he/she does not attend.

Transportation to the dinner for the Cadets will be provided by the Corp from the ACR/ASU. Parents will then be required to pick their Cadet up at 19:30 (7:30 pm) at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Lodge, 9305 5 St. SE (Acadia).

Tickets will be available from the Parents Support Society on Thursday evenings up to June 1st, 2017.

Events & Achievements

KOZAR CUP 2017

This past weekend the 1292 Drill team travelled up to CFB Edmonton to participate in the Annual Kozar Cup Drill Competition that the Army Cadet League of Canada (Alberta) hosted. 

The RO for the competition was LCol Richard Palfrey and Mrs. Dolores Kozar was in attendance.

The team competed against 3 other teams from across Alberta under the LSTF Drill Competition format. The team worked very hard to build off of their excellent performance at the Spielman Cup held in March. The competition was very close as the teams performed very well. The 1292 team put on an amazing show of drill and in the end were named as the Top Team of the competition and were awarded the Kozar Cup by Mrs. Kozar.

In addition to the team win, the 1292 Drill Team Commander (WO Salomons) and 2IC (Sgt Skarbo) were named the MWO Freddie Bootle Top Drill Team Commander Trophy. This year both the IC and 2IC were judged as a team during the competition. This is the 3rd time in 4 years that this award has gone to the 1292 Drill Team Commander.

Another award was handed out to Troop O'Connell as the Best Dressed Cadet for 1292.

The Staff, parents, cadets in the Corps and the Corps friends are all proud of them and congratulate the team on their hard work paying off and their excellent representation of the Corps during this years Drill Competitions.
