137 RCD NEWS AT A GLANCE
12 Jun 18 - That's a wrap! Another successful training year in the books which included three field training exercises, some community events, our first ever Marksmanship Team, biathlon and orienteering competitions and many other great experiences. We capped the year off climbing at Altitude Gym and celebrated our successes with a mess dinner and annual ceremonial review parade.
Our cadets will soon head off to summer training, while our staff takes a well earned break for the summer interspersed with planning next year's training. For those heading to summer training, your travel itineraries will be published as soon as we have them and we wish you best of luck. Work hard but must of all, have fun. Our first training night back will be September 10th.
