What: A required class for those who would like to instruct at future WAMA weekends. The course will go over how to be an effective instructor as well as a lot of time to work on creating the best classes for WAMA with other like-minded individuals who are interested in instructing similar classes.
Cadet Staff Training and Selection - Cadets wishing to serve on WAMA staff for the 2019-2020 Training Year should send a resume of experience and a cover letter to Lt Col Kathy Maxwell at firstname.lastname@example.org . Discussions will be held on upholding Core Values, schedules, and individual job descriptions. Positions being filled include Cadet Commander, Cadet Deputy Commander and First Sergeant.
Facility Work Party - we need help readying the facility for the upcoming training year. We have a few large projects planned that will go fast with many hands helping. We would also like to do some air conditioner replacements and smaller indoor projects. We also need people who are good at putting together displays for our walls. If you are able to help, please sign up. If you have historical pictures of Camp Boucher or pictures of Col Boucher himself, please send copies to Lt Col Maxwell. Please bring work clothes, shoes and gloves if you have them.

Per the regulation CAPR 60-1G:“A soaring activity, to include the tow pilot, demands that comfortable, loose-fitting, nonrestrictive clothing be worn. Personnel will wear clothing that is appropriate for the conditions in which they are operating, identifies them as CAP members, and reflects CAP in a positive manner. A tee-shirt or polo, such as a CAP designed wing, unit or activity shirt with a pair of shorts/long pants and tennis shoes are sufficient. It is recommended that shorts be either khaki-type or dark blue and the long pants either khaki-type or medium gray. Due to the greenhouse effect of the glider canopy, the use of sun screen and a fullbrimmed hat (boony or bucket hat), that will also protect the ears and back of the neck, is highly encouraged; baseball-style caps may be worn, however, styles without buttons on the top are recommended. For numerous reasons, including space restrictions in most glider rudder pedal areas, the wearing of boots of any kind is prohibited.”
Cadets’ flight uniform: ABUs or BDUs with athletic shoes (if weather is warm, a CAP tee-shirt may be worn without the ABU/BDU blouse) and ABU/BDU cover (boony hats may be available)
Any approved uniform including flight suit or the above guidance
