REPORT TIMES: Senior Staff: 0815 - Cadet Staff - 0815 - All others - 0830.
SAFETY BRIEFING: 0830. 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: 1:30 PM. In the past it has ended by 1230 and cleanup takes about 30-40 minutes. It is possible that your cadet might have to stay for a short additional time if the ceremony runs long. If anyone other than your cadet's parent or guardian is picking them up after the event, you MUST provide a letter (or email) authorizing us to release your cadet to this other person. Parents are respectfully requested to make every effort to pick-up on time. We understand that traffic and distance are a problem but many of our Senior Members and Cadet Staff will be attending for the entire event and it isn't fair to them if you are very late. They must wait until the last cadet is picked-up to leave themselves.
Letters for school must be requested via email at least one week in advance. Letters requested the week of the event may not be delivered on time because Captain Del Orfano must write each one individually.
CADETS MAY NOT: Wander off alone or touch any displays or equipment that they are not asked to touch. Excessive cell phone use will result in a senior member holding your phone until dismissal.
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.
U.O.D.: BDU's / ABU's (or cadet alternate - white collared shirt & black pants with shined shoes). NOTE - ALL BOOTS MUST BE SHINED AND ALL UNIFORM GRADE INSIGNIA AND NAME TAPES MUST BE CORRECT!!!!
NOTE THAT THIS IS A COLD WEATHER EVENT. Warm coats (civilian ok), gloves, thermal underwear, hand / foot warmers, heavy socks are required. If you are not dressed properly - you will be sent home.
REQUIRED ITEMS: CAPID, (2) CAPF-161, CAPF-60-80 (Cadets), (2) 16-oz. Water Bottles or equivalent, snacks.
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.
