RMC Ex Cadet Club Annual Meet and Greet

Once again, the Hamilton ExCadet Club will be holding its annual meet and greet at HMCS Star in Hamilton on December 21st. The event will kick off at 1730 hrs with an informal reception. The purpose of the evening is to connect current serving local cadets with “experienced” Ex Cadets to share stories and pass along news from the school. It is also a great way for prospective cadets to learn more about the institution, and to hear about what they can expect during and after their RMC experience.

Food will be available along with a cash bar.


Cadets: Scarlets

Ex Cadets: Sixes

All others: Jacket and Tie or Equivalent


Current Cadets are welcome free of charge

All others $10 at the door.

Directions: Please find the google map here. Enter the main gates for HMCS Star located off the Dock Service Road, and turn and immediate left after the guard shack. Follow around to the end of the building, with the entrance being on the northwest side of the building. Be wary of the one way streets on John and Wellington.

RSVP by December 15th to Adam McInnis or Bob Carr.

You are invited to attend a Christmas Meet and Greet reception in the the Warrant Officers’ and Sergeants’ Mess at the Halifax Armoury on Sunday, December 27 2009 from 2 to 4 pm.

The reception will enable potential ROTP applicants and their parents, our NS Branch members and their spouses/guests, and visiting RMC/CMRSt. Jean Cadets home for the holidays to meet one another and hear about experiences at the Colleges in Kingston ON and St Jean QC. We are sponsoring this function to support the Red and White program initiative that endeavours to identify and support ROTP applicants inapplying to go to RMC/CMR St. Jean for their education and a career in the CF.

Our Branch will fund and organize this function so there will be no cost to attend. There will be a “No Host” Bar, and fruit and vegetable trays and a cheese platter will be available as well.

I encourage our members to attend to meet the ROTP applicants and their parents and the visiting Cadets. I also request serving members to wear appropriate Service Dress.

Limited parking for about 40 cars is available at the Armoury and there is plenty of on street parking in the vicinity. Entry to the Armoury is on the west side facing onto The Halifax Commons. The Warrant Officers’ and Sergeants’ Mess is on the upper level and can be accessed on the right hand side of the building once one has entered the Armoury.

REPLY to wgard@eastlink.ca to let me know if you plan to attend. Please indicate the number of persons who will accompany you.

Merry Christmas to you and yours. May 2010 bring you prosperity and good health.
