So there was this one time on a SAREX (the beginning of every great story) when we were driving around in our '95 chevy van, looking for an ELT. We stopped along some tiny backroad in the middle of nowhere. The nearest building was a small mobile home about 200 yards away, on the opposite side of the road. As we stepped out, we noticed a 'no trespassing' sign at the entrance to a trail. Assuming the sign was placed with regard to the trail, we ignored it and proceeded to get our L-per reading. About 20 seconds later, we heard a sharp crack that sounded suspiciously like a gunshot. The GTL cautiously peeked around the van and shouted some words that I won't repeat here. We loaded in the van and drove away faster than a fat kid at a dessert bar. I looked out the back window to see an old man wielding a shotgun on the front porch of the mobile home. We heard two more shots as we drove away. As far as I'm aware, the incident was never reported up the chain. Even to this day, those who were there consider it a touchy subject. So yeah, there's my tall tale that actually happened.

My cadet is new to CAP, so I don't know what protocols and etiquette are.  There's one Senior Member in particular who is akin to the "wizard behind the curtain." She's always running around, all over the place, taking care of everyone, everything, and just does it all. Are there any rules, regulations, etc against giving gifts to Senior Members? I won't see her again until after the holidays, but I'd like to give her something, a small token of appreciation to say, "thank you for being amazing!" Any suggestions?  Thank you.
Were doing gift card and a framed photo of our cadet with the senior member.

Hello,
I'm a parent to a new CAP cadet who joined a short while ago, and has been really enjoying it so far.

I'm happy to have found this community. I've shared this community with my cadet, and look forward to poking around to get a taste of things within CAP that she can look forward to as she ranks up.

Happy Holidays, all!
Welcome to the wonderful world of CAP parenting! Its amazing.

In 1998 my father (a SM in the squadron at the time) got a marble paperweight from the drill team with the CAP logo on it and an "in appreciation from the drill team" mini-plaque on it.

It is still on his work desk.

No specific rules regarding gifts. 

A Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts gift card is a nice token.

My wife is able to buy these with her company's logo on them and we gave several of them to CAP
members and Boy Scouts who helped with an activity.

There are several Winter Encampments listed in the Cadet Programs page.

Some wings have administrative "sectors" or "regions", etc., which are functionally the same thing from a S-O-C
perspective.

The upside is no requirement to have additional, time-wasting SUIs for a non-operational HQ unit, the downside is
that the command authority of those pseudo-echelons is problematic at least in regards to the regulations.

The more reporting and program control that is moved into eServices, the less S-O-C issues there are, but
on occasion there needs to be command-level discussions (for good or bad), and an S-O-C that is larger then
the generally recommended "5-7" dots, is unworkable, especially if the Wing CC is on the other side of the state.

The other non-trivial issue is that many wings no longer have the personnel to sacrifice them from the units to another echelon,
which results in dilution of the units or circular reporting relationships, or both.
