Every year, all squadrons in the Merseyside Wing come together for a competition day, this is called Field Training Day. This is usually held at Wade Deacon High School in Widnes.
The competetions include Drill, Banner Drill, Aero Modeling, First Aid, and a Uniform Inspection.
The Cadets prepare for the event over 2-3 months of practice. This involves training Cadets in the drill team, putting the models together and practicing First Aid procedures.
Once all Squadrons have competeted, there is a final parade which takes place around 4pm. During the parade any Squadrons who have won competetions during the year for any activities will be awareded their trophy.
This year was a big achievement for 611 Woodvale Sqadron as we came 5th in the Drill Competition.
