Thames Valley Wing Activities Day

On 25 September 13 cadets from 966 (Wallingford) Sqn took part in the various competitions organised at the Thames Valley Wing Activities Day.

Overall, 966 Sqn came a credible 5th place out of a total of the 26 Sqn’s taking part. Our strength lay in a strong performance in the ‘greens’ section of the competition. In this section we came top with an overall score of 512, a comfortable lead over 381 (Reading) Sqn who scored 440. Out of the 8 categories in the ’greens’ section 966 Sqn was placed in 7 of them.

The individual placings were ……

1st –  Field Craft Patrol and Map Quiz

2nd – Field Craft Quiz, Field Craft Observation and Adventure Training Cooking

3rd – First Aid and DofE Quiz

The Squadron couldn’t quite match this performance in the ‘blues’ section but credit should go to the Media Skills Team who gained a credible 2nd place in their category.

On the whole, a fine performance and one that shows 966 Squadron has the potential to win the competition next year.
