  1. Drill comp ... !

    Well, it's coming up hard and fast, and we only just got our drill team together and parade positions picked. I'm not worried though; when I was a first year, it was the exact same thing and we took hom gold. Because we practised quite frequently and gave it our all. Last year, we didn't place, but this year, I think we're gonna make a comeback. Our abour turn on the march is excellent, and that's usually the hardest thing for first years to master. As a whole, I think we stand a fighting chance. ...

  4. Not something you see everyday.

    So on parade nights at my corps, every night, a new cadet is chosen for best dressed cadet and they receive a free canteen coupon. So this time, a young cadet who was from England got picked and so he marches up. At this point, a lot of the cadets have not really learned how to salute and just attempt it at the best they can. But this cadet was from England, so he saluted right, just the British way. Definitely not something you see every day.
  5. A request/proposal to what Fortress should be

    I've always knew what Fortress was supposed to be: a communication tool between corps/squadrons, CSTCs, regions, etc. to replace the previous way of doing things which was by mail. However, only recently (about 3 weeks ago) the news came to me while idly talking to one of my officers that it was a complete clustered mess that wasn't made well at all.
