And that’s the problem.  “Show your cadets how to apply”.  Ok...what NCSA’s does Lift cover? What qualifications do they need for Wings? Do they need a “flight plan” etc?

These are great for the cadets and I don’t mean to complain, there’s just not much info about them.

Understood, but again why aren’t they posting this information? Where’s the transparency?

Well, I just got one of these in my CAP email this morning:

"Good Morning [XXXX] CDCs,

CAP Scholarships Applications
When: Applications close on 15 January 2019
Information about the new singular CadetInvest system can be found here.
Please show your cadets how to apply through the "CAP CadetInvest" module on e-services.

Summer NCSA Applications
When: Applications close on 15 January 2019
Descriptions of National Cadet Special Activities can be found on the NCSA website.
Please let your cadets know how to apply through the "Registration and Payment" module on e-services.
Make sure your CC is approving these at the unit level. You can also request to be given the permissions to approve cadets to attend NCSAs. I know in the past, some cadets were unable to attend because their squadron never approved their application."

Just looking for the qualifications for the new ones and what each pays for.  The older ones are very specific.  I just think all this should be “out there” when we’re taking about spending millions of dollars.  We shouldn’t need to call NHQ.  They’ve gone to the trouble of making a CadetInvest webpage, why not just list everything there.

The activities eligible for CadetInvest funding are indicated on eservices, specifically,

CAP CADET ACADEMIC
CADET WINGS FLIGHT
CADET LIFT
CAP CADET FLIGHT
CEAP
FEIK FLIGHT (FEMALE CADETS ONLY)
DR. RON HANSON ACADEMIC
LT COL WILLIAM HANNA, JR. MEMORIAL FLIGHT
USAA ACADEMIC
PRIVATE PILOT AND BEYOND FLIGHT
USAFA PREP SCHOOL RECOMMENDATION
TAKE-OFF PROGRAM for CADETS (TOP) FLIGHT

One could guess that the additional funding will simply result in increased funding
for those who qualify (i.e. more people and higher amounts), but not much change
in the process, if any.

In the grand scheme of things ~$2.4MM isn't all that much money.  I would guess
the scratch-pad works out to be less then $30k "more" money per win, especially
factoring in CAP isn't the only recipient of the funds, and it won't be an even division
as some wings have encampments, some don't, others have Flight Academies, etc.

As indicated, NHQ is really the only other source for this info if what is on the web and
eservices isn't enough.

It's not an "oversight" - the language and photos are essentially the same going back to at least 1997.
If it's an oversight, it's an oversight that has existed for over 20 years.

(Though humorously, in the 2005 ver of 39-1, the photo of the cadet wearing a cord shows it indirectly placed).

No cords with the semi-formal.

Also, no one will care either way.

You want details, contact National. They're the one's who can give you correct answers.

To me it is as clear as day.

The cords are formal wear. So is the name plate. And so is the cover. So if you remove stuff to "de-formalize it," so you should remove the cords as well.

No, that's not right. The name plate and cover are not worn with the Semi-Formal Dress Uniform because they are not worn with Mess Dress.
Both are worn on occasions where a tuxedo would be worn by civilians.
In the real military Semi-Formal Dress is the enlisted equivalent to Mess Dress. Enlisted are not required to have a Mess Dress while officers are required to have it.
In CAP Semi-Formal Dress is reserved for cadets and Mess Dress is worn by seniors only.

I wrote a Python script for creating user waypoints and saving to a .fpl file for import int the G1000.  I also have a compiled executable version that does not require Python installed. If anyone is interested in trying it , send me a PM and I'll email the script or give you a link to get the executable.
