In a surprise result, the cadets of 2211 (Bracknell) Squadron have won the Thames Valley Wing Activity Day held at Edward Brooks Barrack from a strong field of 287 cadets from right across the Thames Valley.
Bracknell secured the win by a strong performance across all the categories – Foot Drill, Banner Drill, Aviation Art, Aeromodelling, Photography, Media Skills, Aircraft Recognition, Flights of Fancy and Map Making. Runners up were 1996 (Earley) Squadron followed by 211 (Newbury) Squadron and 381 (Reading) Squadron. The overall drill winners were favourites 1116 (Wodley) Squadron who now go forward to the Regional Activity Day.
Wing Spokeman, Sqn Ldr Mark Trevena, was impressed with the day “all of the nearly 300 cadets who took part today really put their best efforts into the myriad of competitions. Of course there can only be one winner and 2211 (Bracknell) Squadron really impressed me with their team effort and were really in it for the win”. He continued “of course the competition was supported by a first class staff team – I know the cadets really appreciate their support”.
