Marksmanship Session – Sunday, January 6, 2019

My regrets for the late announcement, at the last marksmanship training group session I mentioned a session for today from 630 to 830PM but it did not make it into the January calendar.

If Cadets or parents of cadets in the training group could email me to let me know if they can make it, please let me know at your earliest convenience. My phone cannot currently receive text messages.

Regards,
