please, make the topic titles so people know what the post is about.  and "chat" topics about whatever aren't allowed, all posts should have something to do with CAP.

to answer the CAP-related question, wakeup times vary between 5:30am and 6:30am.  Often, it's staff at 5:45, and trainees at 6:00am, or something like that.  But, since you goto bed early (you can't stay up until midnight watching movies), it won't be that hard.

Joint Dakota usually does 0430 for staff, 0500 for basics, and bed as soon as possible after all the stuff that needs to be done is done, supplemented by sleep marching and/or other napping means.

Dare I ask what "sleep marching" is?

First off, this isn't the lounge.  This is the Encampment/NCSA's thread.  Secondly, we are trying to keep this board based on CAP related topics.  Questions like "What is your favorite *insert category here*" should be kept to PM's and other forms of communication.  We're not discouraging discussion (we all know that we're welcoming any traffic on this site!), but we want to keep it based on CAP as much as possible. 

Second, if you have a problem with how we are moderating the boards, please take this up with a moderator or admin via PM. 

Finally, what I think Lt Horn is talking about is that we want posts that are guided towards a specific question and/or topic.  The more specific the better. 

Thanks for your opinion!

somebody was a little cranky... *ducks*

yeah, it does say "chat with other CAPers", but hopefully it'll be a little more professional than what you hear at the local bus stop.  "yo, sup dude?" rather than "what did you think of your last meeting?".    the "code of conduct" on the forum does include the line...  "Members will only discuss matters on topic for the forum in which they are posting.  Members will not make blatantly off-topic posts or attempt to derail legitimate discussions. All topics must relate and be of interest to CAP members in a professional aspect."

That's mainly so we can delete or lock stuff that's mainly just for postcount boosting (like those annoying threads on CS), but the topics should have something to do with CAP not "how is everybody doing" (sorry Cheergirl).

Cranky, schmanky...

Sorry if the post came off a bit trite, I didn't mean for it to be that way.  I was in trouble with my folks and worried about two other things, and you know how well all that goes together. 

I also didn't realize at the time that the thread was originally called, "How is Everybody Doing", which was what Lt Horn was originally referring to.  EDIT: I was also just told that the thread was originally in the lounge, and it was moved here with the changed name.  Wow, so much for communication between the mods.

My apologies...

Then it would appear that everything is as it should be in "CAP Talk" Land and there have been no changes in board posting policy.

So, back to the original question; what time Do you have to wake up at encampment? Isn't 5 am a little early? I just know I have to be there by 5:30 am. So they must get up around then. I will be missing my orientation, so I am just wondering what to expect.

It really depends on the wing.  And while you may thing that 0500 is early, just remember that staff is going to bed way after you and waking up way before you.  So don't complain.

Last year at the ARWG encampment the staff was up at 0545 and the regular cadets were up at 0600 . Lights out was at 2200. It wasn't bad unless you had to sit up on CQ (which I did on three seperate occasions).

What is CQ?

Charge of Quarters... The person(s) who is responsible a barracks area and for insuring that only authorized persons leave or enter a barracks area... Often used with or also referred to as Fire Watch... which gives the alarm in case of fire or disorder.

Cadets attending their basic encampment(s) ie: Non-staff cadets... You will usually be detailed by and report to a cadet staff member for fire watch or CQ.

At most (heck, all) of the encampments and NCSAs that I've been to, a different flight is tasked with schedualing and handling CQ every night.  For example, night one of encampment is Alpha flight's night, so they'll have everyone pair up and choose a shift (2200-2300, 2300-2400, etc) and each CQ shift will wake up and brief the next one all night until 0500 when everyone wakes up.  Sometimes there will be two hour shifts, but it really just depends on how many people you have and how long you have to do CQ for.

Ha, we didn't have to do fire watch. We did get up early though. A 16 hour day is a little too much for me. But I'm working on it.

In regards to sleep, it all depends.  When I was a basic many moons ago, we were up at 0415.  Understand though, when I first did basic, that was allowed, in addition to pushups on the spot, bunks thrown out wndows, etc--the good old days!  I have been to 6 encampments now, and now we tend to do 5 am.  In regards to CQ it depends.  Last year I was the Squadron Commander for encampment, and I was responsible for making all the scheduling for CQ.  Basically, all I did was but 2 flights per night, and switch them on and off, A&D B&C etc.  Very random.  Well, I am going to get off so I can get back to work.

Il Spring is usually 530-545 for staff, 0600 for basics, with a hard lights out at 2200 for basics and 2230 for everyone - if its not done by 2230, it waits until tomorrow.

As this is a weekend encampment, sleep deprivation becomes a safety issue on the ride home.

If you want to take a look at a typical IL Spring Schedule, it is online here:

BTW - I am >DYING< to know what the obvious lie was...

Hmm.  0415?  What encampment did you go to?  Somehow I don't think so.

When I did my basic we did not get up that early. 

If I am thinking of the encampment your talking about you must remember that there are things that occured there which never should of happened.  There is no way to justify those things, its just they should of never happened.

Lights out at 1900?? Its still light out in the summer until at least 2030 usually.  Hope the cadets had blinds in their rooms  :o   I seem to recall getting up at around 0445 when I went to encampment and lights out around 2200.  CQ wasn't bad, just rather boring, if I recall every flight did CQ since it was a rather large ANG base that we had pretty much all of for our encampment.

Edit: Spelling and more spelling

At CTWG Encampment basics usually do CQ but on the last real day...cadet staff does it. Sounds bad but depending on who you are with...it's actually pretty fun.
