What kind of things do your squadrons do for weekend activities and how often do you run a weekend activity. My squadron has done about 5 over the past 2 years. Iíve only been back in CAP since October and the only things that Iíve done other than squadron meetings have been with my buddyís unit(heís their commander). Also, during meetings, we tend to have a lot of classroom time and not may hands on activities and some of our cadets interest is waning. Any other meeting night activity ideas would be welcome, too.

Thank. There are some great ideas in there that can transfer to our area. What was the Curry weekend?

It was conducted by one of the school squadrons but my understanding is that it was intended to get cadets completely though the Curry Award in one weekend. Some of our cadets went.
