Dear parents/guardians,

Our first “Tag Day” event of the year will be conducted on Friday, 20 October and finish on Sunday, 22 October. All cadets will be required to tag a minimum of three out of four shifts. Online registration is mandatory for coordinating and tracking purposes. Please go to our web site for shift schedule information and cadet sign-up. Tag Day is vital to the successful operation of our squadron and we also require your assistance with driving. All monies raised directly benefit your son/daughter/ward to participate in all our exciting squadron activities.

We understand there are circumstances which may interfere with your son/daughter attending 3 out of 4 shifts. However, since this is a team effort and everyone needs to contribute, we expect each cadet to be responsible for covering their fair share in revenue loss. We estimate each shift at $50 and parents can make a donation to the Squadron (a charitable donation tax receipt will be provided).

By now all cadets should be aware of the general premise of tag days. All cadets require a tag box and tags to collect donations from the community. These will be issued when they arrive for their shift. Parent drivers will sign-in on the drivers log sheet and then proceed to shuttle groups of cadets to their designated location(s). At the end of each tagging shift, the same parent driver will then return to the same location(s) to pick-up the cadets. A lunch will be provided to those cadets who work the whole day on Saturday. Some parents may also be requested by the SSC or staff to remain on site to provide general assistance where required.

            The Air Cadet League requires all volunteer drivers to fill in the Driver’s Log sheet (see reverse). This sheet needs to be returned to the SSC for processing next week.

            If you have any questions, you can speak to an SSC member on any Wednesday night at our school or call the squadron phone number (416) 410-7104 or email at: SSC@283AIRCADETS.CA

I thank you in advance for your support,

Andrew Milligan
