FAA 2015 (4)The Canadian team from Alberta, 2313 South Alberta Light Horse Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, or “Team Canadia” (at right) as they were affectionately referred to, competed at the second annual Florida Air Academy Drill Competition along with Eua Gallie High School’s Air Force JROTC drill team and color guards.

Just two teams competing? Yes. We had six teams on the books, and four schools had to drop due to various issues. We hope to see them all next year, though!

FAA 2015 (5)Eau Gallie did very well and everyone watched the Candian team with awe as they marched and differently and called some “strange” commands. We loved them and all of the cadets exchanged email addresses and Facebook accounts after the awards were handed out. The Canadians won. Go, Team Canadia*!

FAA 2015 (1)Our judges were Army and Marine Recruiters, Melbourne and Rockledge Police and Brevard Fire. We had every service represented from Active Duty to veterans. They did an outstanding job!

The word, “Canadia”, came from one of the judges who let that slip, thought about it and then restated, “Canada!” with just a little embarrassment. It was all good as everyone had a great time.

      Of course, Ma’am. It was a privilege to host 2313 SALH and is icing on the cake to have my article officially shared with the Canadian Cadet world.
