It had been a sunny day all day and yet just as the headquarters was opened for the evening the rain fell. Still we had a very good turn out with lots of friends and families of the Squadron visiting for our annual Open Evening. The main hall was packed with visitors and the cadets filling the side rooms. Someone must have let slip that we were firing up the BBQ. There’s nothing quite like having a burger in the rain.

The cadets had been busy sorting out the building with ‘Displays’ in all the rooms and a few of the cadets had been preparing presentations for our guests describing some of the many activities we get involved in (see the other pages on our website !!).

However I’m sure most of the cadets were eager to find out who had won the awards, and have a burger from the BBQ !!

 

Several Presentations took place during the evening
