Item 1: Huck A Puck Fund Raising:
This years' fund raising has begun. All cadets are encouraged to obtain a permission slip to be signed by your parent or guardian. You will then be issued vouchers to sell. UNDERSTAND, you / your family will be responsible for those vouchers, if lost, you are responsible to pay for them. If you don't sell them all, you can turn them in at no cost to you.

This has been a good fund raiser for our unit every year, so see Lt Nielsen for slips and vouchers and support our squadron.
Item 2: Winter FTX.
There will be two (2) winter FTXs this year. The first will be 10 January. This will be sponsored by Weber Minuteman, and is the FTX we usually attend in Wendover. This year it will take place in Price. More will be posted as details are announced.
The second will be in February, dates to be determined. This one is sponsored by and in Cashe Valley, and will include building snow caves and winter survival. More will be posted as details are announced.
 Item 3: The Squadron year end banquet will again be held at the Friends of Eagles reception hall, and is being scheduled for February. Stay tuned for more details as they are posted. You need your best blues uniform. Any cadet may wear a tie, and service coat if you have one for the banquet.
Item 4: Desert Hawk XII Encampment has been scheduled for 14-21 Jun 2014. There is not yet any info on staff applications or cost. Encampment is usually at least/between $100 to $150 so plan and start saving now. More information to come.
Item 5: NCSAs. The National Cadet Special Activities have already begun announcing for 2014. Starting on 1 December, all of the NCSAs will be on e services for applications, and payments. Check out the NCSAs now, and get ready to apply between 1 Dec and 15 Jan, so NOT A LOT OF TIME TO DECIDE TO APPLY.

1. If you are ready for a drill test, a milestone written test, a speech or a review board, you must log in right here PRIOR to Wednesday at 1700 hours and let us know what you need. There will not be time to schedule these on Thursday when you arrive for the meeting.On line testing (Leadership and Aerospace Tests) must be completed before a drill test will be given.
The PT test for your next promotion can be taken on any PT meeting.

On line tests, PT and drill tests (as applicable), speeches or SDAs must be completed prior to requesting a promotion board. The board is the LAST step before completing any achievement.

2. If you need anything from supply, to place an order, need uniform parts, you should arrive at 1830. All such requests should be made before the meeting. 

3.  BDU UNIFORMS! Boots, pant, blouse and BDU flat top cover, are available through the Wing. Utah Wing has purchased a number of various sizes, and are making those uniforms available to the membership. 
You can get a full set for $20 total. If you need a full uniform, or if you need one or two of those four parts, let the command staff know what you need ASAP. 
Individual uniform parts are $6.00 a piece (which is anything less than all four parts). We will need to notify the Wing staff what we need. This is not a retail situation, where you can show up at the Wing building anytime, and buy stuff, so we need to do some arranging, but this will not be difficult, nor will it have to take a long time, so figure out what you need, and put a list together now.
Sizes are not guaranteed, but chances are we can get you outfitted. If you already have a uniform, you can still buy a new set, and then you will have a set for squadron, and a set you can wear for FTXs. There is no rule that says you can't take advantage of this opportunity just because you already have a set. There is no rule which limits 1 set per member either.
These uniforms are new or used but good condition. JUMP ON THIS NOW. If this program works well, the Wing may continue, and buy more next year. If no one needs uniforms, and the Wing is stuck with all those uniforms, they will likely not do this again. Its not free, but you will not see a full set of uniforms in this good condition for this little money again.
Phoenix is Second To None!
