Tonight we made the most of a lovely evening and had a fun, socially distanced, Rounders match. This is usually a very competitive activity at 1985, but everyone was having so much fun the scoreboard was scrapped.
Congratulations to all of the cadets who completed yesterday's 25km road march. This is the first ever Blue Badge Road Marching course we have run in the Southern Sector. This course ran over three separate weekends and involved the cadets completing the Cadet Training Package and three marches at 15km, 20km and 25km. The cadets will now be awarded certificates and blue badges that can be displayed on their uniform.
