Good Evening, All! We hope you are finally enjoying this beautiful "SPRING" weather!
Tagging is coming up THIS WEEK! The sign up sheets are available online.
All Cadets are expected to do a minimum of 4 of the 6 available shifts.
As always, if your Cadet is unable to meet their commitment, they need to inform the CO directly so that they can be formally excused. 715mohawk
For those who are new to 715 and are wondering what Tagging is…….
"A day on which contributions to a fund are solicited, each contributor receiving a tag".
Tagging is an extremely low risk method of raising considerable funds over a weekend. In short, a tagging is when cadets stand outside of local businesses (ones that have been approached and permission obtained to do so) and ask "Would you like to help support air cadets" to people entering or leaving. For each donation, the cadet hands out a "tag" or in our Squadron’s case, a small bookmark with our Squadron information.
Tagging weekends are run twice a year – Fall and Spring, rain orshine.
Those Cadets who do all 6 shifts will be able to attend the Canada’s Wonderland trip for FREE!
Those Cadets who do their mandatory 4 shifts will be able to go on the trip for 1/2 price! (Please note: Cadets who are competing at the Band Competition will be eligible to go to Canada’s Wonderland for FREE, provided they have also completed their 4 mandatory shifts) We had over 20 Cadets do all 6 shifts at our last Tagging event! Let’s see if we can beat that this SPRING!! The more Cadets we have out, the more money we make for the Squadron!! We currently have more spots available for sign up!
The shifts are as follows: THURSDAY & FRIDAY 5 – 9 pm. SATURDAY & SUNDAY 9 am – Noon and 1 pm – 5 pm
We also need parents/guardians to drive Cadets to and from their locations, as well as people to count the money coming in.
Please let us know if you can help with driving as we are desperate for drivers. Please be sure to add the number of Cadets you can take in your vehicle. The sign up is online on the Tagging Sign Up….just scroll down to the DRIVER and/or COUNTER section. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0d4eadaf2da0f85-tagging
Parents/Guardians, this is a great time to lend a hand with driving and counting. Please note, all drivers must bring in their license and proof of vehicle insurance. We would also like your mobile number (if applicable) in the event we need to make a change to your pick up location, etc. For those driving more than one shift, we only need you to bring this information in for your first shift, when we will photocopy it. Also, please note, we do not keep this information on file after the weekend, so even if you have given us the information last Fall, we will need it again this week. Thank you for your understanding.
This is one of our LARGEST fundraisiers for the Squadron. Please help by making sure your Cadet takes part and, at a minimum, meets their mandatory 4 shifts.
Tagging money goes towards things like Trips and special events for the Cadets, as well as paying the Squadron’s monthy rent and expenses. Due to great turn outs for Tagging in the past, we’ve had record breaking weekends for fundraising. We would love to see another record broken starting this Thursday night!
We look forward to your support and really appreciate your help!!
Thank you in advance for your assistance!
Liz & your SSC
