The deadline to apply for cadet command staff positions for the 2006 New York Wing Encampment is fast approaching.  This deadline (April 1st) is only for those applying for cadet commander, deputy cadet commander, cadet executive officer, and first sergeant.  The application deadline for other cadet staff positions is May 13th.

To apply, visit the 2006 NYWG Encampment web site at http://nywgcadets.org/enc2006 and click "How to Apply".  Cadets are encouraged to submit their essays through the web site.  You can submit the essay before the remainder of your paperwork is processed.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

I will not be able to attend the first training weekend, will I still be eligible for Flight Commander, Medical, or SET?

Yes.  Although we prefer that people attend both workshops, we understand that not everybody is able to make it, and it won't impact your ability to apply for the positions you've listed.

Edited to add: Please let the encampment registrar know you will not be able to attend.  Her contact information is available here.  For anyone else that reads this thread, contact the registrar and I if you're unable to attend a workshop, so we can get the food quantities right.

Re: 17c Forms
Should they be included when we mail the NYWF31 and NYWF96 to the Registrar, or should they just be brought to the workshops?

You should mail the forms with your encampment paperwork, so we know you're going to be at the workshops.  You can hand-carry the workshop fees, but we'd prefer to have the paperwork in advance.

Thanks,

Me.  And the Encampment Registrar (Maj Falco).

We strongly encourage people to attend both workshops, but if you do have prior engagements, you just need to let Maj Falco and I know.

Sorry, I missed this one.

We do most of our staff evaluation during the first workshop on 19-21 May.  You should hear within a week after that workshop.

Precisely when you're told.  ;D

We haven't actually determined that yet.  I imagine it will be in the evening, but we'll get the word out on that with plenty of time to spare.

Regarding this coming Staff Training Weekend (19-21 May), what type of "bedding" should be brought? On the site it states that "if staying on base, bring bedding, and be prepared to sleep on the floor in cabins", do you suggest sleeping bags and pads, or sheets and blankets?

Thank you!!

C/SSgt Jackson,

Sleeping bags and pads.  There may be cots available to us, but we don't know yet.  Assume you're sleeping on a wooden floor, and plan accordingly.

I, personally, am bringing a cot.  If you own a cot, and it's not too big or too difficult to travel with, you can bring it with you.  I wouldn't go out and buy one just for this weekend, since you won't need it for the encampment itself.

See you Friday!

It will be stretching and light calisthenics.  PT this weekend serves two purposes:

1. Helping the cadets get their bodies going for the busy day.

2. Allow us to evaluate first sergeant applicants as they execute PT.

We want people to bring warm PT gear because it may be as low as the 50s in the morning.

Re: Equipment
Should we bring the same equipment to the Staff Skills Weekend that we brought to the Leadership Workshop, with the exception of Blues?

What are the dimensions for the guidon?
What should the length of the pole be?

You're asking this now?  Two days before you arrive?

An old bookstore (pre-CAPMart) catalog lists the guidon as 20x27 in.  There is a swallow tail in it, but I'm not sure how much you cut out for that, and if you even need to have a swallow tail.

Some quick Googling (hint hint) lists other guidons that are close in dimension to that, so it seems about right.

The pole is 8 ft. long by 1 in. thick, but we have poles, you don't have to bring your own.

Ah, Mike beat me to it!!  CAPR 900-2, Figure 12 (page 8 ) defines the dimensions a guidon should adhere to, including how deep to make the swallow tail.  Additional information is available in the page previous (page 7) in paragraph 5.

Good luck.  :)

I was thinking, (I know... bad things happen when I do this.) CAPR 900-2 doesn't really give specifications for a flagstaff meant for a guidon... Say my squadron isn't weird and I only need one guidon for the squadron, so I decide to splurge and buy a real guidon pole with the correct chrome hardware.  What length do you buy?  Seen them available between 7' and 9'... The shorter ones would seem better suited for cadet use, but what's the USAF spec?

 :D Yeah... CAPR 900-2 actually requires the flat military spearhead on flagstaffs for ceremonial or organizational flags when carried, also it is improper to have the gold tone eagle atop the US flag when carried as is so often seen.

Nope.  I don't have a van permit.  Too much work to scrub the mud out.  ;)
