Warrior Weekend

May 5th and 6th saw our very own Banning Lewis Ranch Cadet Squadron hosting the annual Warrior Weekend. 55 cadets came from 21 different squadrons from across Colorado to participate in emergency services training. Cadets received training of their choosing of radio operations, ground teaming training, urban direction finding, and mission staff assistance services. Cadets also were allowed to participate in drill activities, experienced morning PT (physical training), and made friends with fellow civil air patrol members over the days. 

Warrior Weekend kicked off on May 4th at 1800 with some cadets arriving early to set up their tents and meet other cadets early. For everyone else, May 5th was the first day which introduced the first and only full day of Warrior Weekend. From 800 at Reveille to Retreat at 1800 and Taps at 2200, Saturday was a day full of activities and adventure. May 5th held a similar day, however, the day ending at 1200. Cadets went on their separate ways throughout CO.
