Squadron Formal Dinner 2019

Cdt Sgt Vickery, Cdt FS Leach and Cdt Sgt Spear at the dinner.

On the Evening of Friday the 29th of November, I was joined by guest speaker Sqn Ldr Dave McRitchie, invited guests, cadets and staff from 613 Squadron who attended the annual Sqn Dinner 2019 at the Alton House Hotel. We dined on an excellently presented 3 course meal that was enjoyed by all. Guest speaker Sqn Ldr Dave McRitichie had us in fits of laughter with tales of his experiences from his career within the RAF.

Cadet Wotherspoon became Corporal Wotherspoon after her promotion, and Sgt Vickery was awarded her Master Air Cadet Classification. The Squadron Commander, Flt Lt John Hillan, congratulated us on our achievements and reminisced about our adventures throughout the year. This was followed on by a funny RAF tradition of name card dares, which involved Cdt Cooney singing the national anthem in which everyone accompanied him, Shortly followed by a mini paper Airplane competition which was won by Sgt Spear and Mrs Nicky Leach, with consolation prizes on where there planes ended up landing won by Cadets Cooney and Beagley.

Everyone had a great time and the cadets were congratulated on how well turned out and well mannered they were. It was a good event all round and we all got a chance to get to experience a formal dinner, first time for some and the last time for others. I look forward to the up and coming years events for 2020 and I hope everyone else is too.
