North Walsham Air Cadets Competition Success

2110 DSCF6544 (1)

Cadets from 2110 [North Walsham] Squadron had a successful weekend [22nd to 24th April] in the Air Training Corps Norfolk and Suffolk Wing Field Competition.
Teams from the 29 Squadrons in Norfolk and Suffolk met in Thetford to compete in several events including first aid, archery, clay pigeon shooting, orienteering, and aircraft recognition.
The North Walsham team, led by Cadet Warrant Officer Daniel Middleton came first in orienteering, third in the Mini Bus Pull and were beaten into second place by just half a point in the Leadership Exercise. Overall the Squadron came 7th out of 29.
Squadron Commander Flying Officer Alan Stevens said this was a fantastic achievement for a small Squadron. In fact we needed to borrow a cadet, Cdt Ashlee Barrell, from our friends at Broadland Squadron to fulfil the requirement for two cadets under 15. We will be looking to recruit new boys and girls to the Squadron and then can expect to do even better next year.
