REPORT TIMES: Senior Staff: 0915 - Cadet Staff - 0915 - All others - 0930.
SAFETY BRIEFING: 0940. The daily Safety Briefing is not optional - ALL MEMBERS are expected to attend.
"If you're early, you're on-time. If you're on-time, you're late. If you're late, go home."
PARENTS - Pick-up Time: 1230. Parents are requested to remain in the area and assist with organizing a cadet rotation (30 minutes outside with a 20 minute warming break) and monitoring cadets on breaks in the Museum. Parents are respectfully requested to make every effort to pick-up on time if you are not staying with your cadet. We understand that traffic and parking may be difficult. Many of our Senior Members and Cadet Staff will be working all day in the cold and it isn't fair to them if you are very late. They must wait until the very last cadet is picked-up to leave themselves.
IMPORTANT - all bags and backpacks are subject to search. DO NOT bring any knives or other weapons with you as you may be turned away! This applies to survival knives in 24-hour packs and pocket knives.
CONTRABAND ITEMS: Weapons of any kind including all knives in 24-hour packs, video games, sports equipment (baseballs, footballs, etc), energy drinks, vaping equipment. All contraband items will be held by a senior member and returned at the end of the day.
CADETS MAY NOT: wander off alone, have any contraband items (there will be a gear check). Excessive cell phone use will result in a senior member holding your phone until dismissal. Horseplay will not be tolerated - you will be warned once and sent home if the behavior continues.
U.O.D.: BDU / ABU, Corporate Uniform, or Cadet Alternate Uniform. SQUADRON COVERS OK FOR THIS EVENT!!! All uniforms must comply with CAPM 39-1.
NOTE THAT THIS IS A COLD WEATHER EVENT. Warm coats (civilian ok), gloves, thermal underwear, hand / foot warmers, heavy socks are required. CADETS NOT DRESSED FOR THE WEATHER WILL BE SENT HOME IMMEDIATELY!!! JUNGLE BOOTS (boots with mesh sides) ARE NOT RECOMMENDED. Be prepared by watching the weather report the night before. Bring a rain poncho if the weather forecast calls for rain.
WATCH YOUR EMAIL AND REMIND FOR LAST MINUTE CANCELLATIONS. Last year this event was cancelled twice due to extreme cold.
REQUIRED ITEMS: CAPID, (2) CAPF-161, CAPF-60-80 (Cadets), (2) 16-oz. Water Bottles or equivalent, snacks and / or a bagged lunch.
PLEASE EAT BREAKFAST prior to arriving in the morning. Recent experience has taught us that cadets do not fully understand this requirement. We mean eating a balanced breakfast; not having a few cough drops, a piece of candy, a can of soda or beef jerky.
If you are not feeling well, please stay home and send an LOA to Capt DelOrfano at email@example.com.
Please respond only once. If you need to change a response, please notify your flight staff or Capt Del Orfano.
