1ST PLACE FOR NO R T H S H O R E CO L O R GU A R D
The Washington Wing Color Guard competition was held at Camp Murray on Friday the 26th of March and Saturday the 27th. We arrived in the late afternoon and checked into the competition at the Red Horse Flight Headquarters where we receive our barracks number and a schedule of events. We went to our assigned barracks and made sure our uniWAWG Color Guard Competition 2004— Northshore Squadron forms were perfect in every way and watch the other teams struggle to look good. At 2000 hours that day we return to the Red Horse Flight building for testing, which we all agreed on was the easiest test we have ever taken in Civil Air Patrol, even though we only scored 3rd in that event by 1 question. The following morning it was time to do the mile run, which was actually measured out to be 1.225 miles by Briant and Warren during their 3 hours of personal time. We won this event and were all pleased with how we ran except for Briant who was disappointed about not getting the fleet foot award. The next event was inspection in which we changed into our blues and checked over each other’s uniforms before we went before the judges. The inspection was almost flawless except for minor details like a tie being to short, a cover being angled badly, and lint on a pair of gloves. The standard drill went exactly as we practice with perfect time of 3:05 (minimum of 3:00) even though we thought it was too fast and have some very minor mistakes that weren’t highly noticeable.

presentation went great and we saw and excellent new rope tying technique perform by Anduiza and we also won 1st place in this event. The indoor presentation was pretty straightforward and we had already practiced that we were going to do on paper the night before. Overall we won 4 of the 6 events, and we are now practicing to win Regional and National next month. Major Walter Congratulating Northshore Color Guard c/SrA Simon Briant

we got up got dress and came out to participate in a team building activities. After team building we ate breakfast and headed over to conference center. We sat thought a 2-hour commander call where they handed out certificates to the senior member. We all had classes to attend. This year they did some thing a little different when it came to the classes. All the airman’s where in one class, all the NCO’s where in another, and even the officers had their own class to attend. While all the classes where taking place a CAC meeting was going on and the senior members where all in meeting /classes. We all breaked long enough to have lunch but pick up right were we had left off. After all the classes where over we went back to the school for 1 hour and a half where everyone got ready for the banquet and dance. We went back to the conference center had a nice banquet with a EXTREMELY long guest speaker. FollowOcean Shores Convention Center ing the guest speaker we had a 20 min dance and went back to the school to have a snack and then all the ladies where in for a laugh, all the guys tried to serenade us with a song or 2 needless to say a couple girls about died laughing. It was finally lights out and just about everyone was tried (the may not have gotten to much sleep but they where tried.) Sunday came and a lot of the cadets attended a service. Every one packed up and everyone was loaded up and taken over to the conference center. Once there we walked to the beach had a little fun with Frisbees (provided for the cadets).
