FTX First Stag

Twenty-six cadets ventured out to Golden Ears provincial park Oct 13-15 for a weekend of fun and adventure, and achieved their goals on both accounts. Everyone now knows about knots, how to safely use an axe and shovel, how to navigate with a map and compass, how to use a GPS device, lighting lamps and…

Colonel Fairweather 1920-2017

We were very sorry to learn of the recent passing of Colonel David Fairweather, on September 15, at the age of 97. A faithful and firm supporter of the Seaforth cadets, he was a friend and inspiration to many. His contributions to Canada and the example he set throughout his life have influenced countless numbers…

Join us in September!

As the summer months draw to an end, and thoughts turn toward school preparations, this is the perfect time to think about what activities you want to do outside of school. If you’re between the age of 12 and 18 and if you’re the sort of person who likes camping, hiking, rappelling, skating, canoeing, marksmanship,…

Spring Showers bring Highland Padlers

The May weather added an element of the unknown to our FTX (Field Training Exercise) “Highland Padler” this month, but the spring showers could not stop our intrepid cadets from enjoying a full weekend of canoeing, summer biathlon training, orienteering, and many fun games. Held jointly with the 2963 Seaforth cadets, and hosted by them…

From Feb 6 to 25 he and 17 of Canada’s top cadets participated in a remarkable Cadets Canada International Expedition that started in Punta Arenas and worked its way through some of the world’s most beautiful terrain in the Torres Del Paine national park. Reflecting on…

March Break Marksmanship

What better way to spend part of March break than by polishing up one’s marksmanship skills? 72nd Seaforth cadets will have the opportunity to spend at least two evenings this month learning how to use the air rifle, practising existing skills, and providing coaching and expertise to others. Under the watchful eye of our experienced…

Always Have a “Plan B”

It’s always good to have a Plan B for when obstacles get in the way of one’s goals, and this past weekend was solid proof of that! We had planned a Field Training Exercise (FTX) to Chilliwack but, as snow began to fall on the Friday of our planned departure date, and kept on falling…

New Armoury a Thrill for Cadets

For some Cadets, rappelling at the newly renovated Seaforth Armoury will be the most memorable event of this month – maybe even the year! First opened in 1936, the historic Burrard Street building re-opened in September following extensive seismic upgrades and various modernizations designed to allow the century-old Regiment to continue serving the community and…
