Welcome to 172!


Tank Museum Feb 7 + Welcome New Recruits!!

As previously announced last Tuesday, there will be NO formal training at Bowmanville High School this coming Tuesday February 7th. There is an event happening at the high school so we do not have a permit to use the school for that evening.

Instead – we will be touring the Ontario Regiment Tank Museum! Please find the details below:

Location: Ontario Regiment Tank Museum – 1000 Stevenson Rd N, Oshawa, ON L1J 5P5. The Museum is located to the SOUTH of Oshawa Airport. (No access from Taunton Rd). Easiest way to get here is Hwy 401W to Stevenson Road, and take Stevenson Road NORTH all the way to the end.

Timing: Please arrive at 6:15PM. The tour will last until 8:30PM. Parents should be arriving for pickup at 8:30pm. If you are issued FTUs (Field training uniforms), you may wear them. Otherwise, wear appropriate civilian attire. No dress uniforms this week.

Secondly – a warm welcome to all of our new recruits!! As many of you know, we had our recruit information session this week and have several new faces joining us in the coming weeks. We look forward to welcoming you all to the 172 family.

If you have any questions, please reach out to one of the staff. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you all at the TANK MUSEUM on Tuesday!!

Subscribe to our Email Service!

We have began a new email delivery service that allows individuals to subscribe/unsubscribe from our email communications. We sent out our first test email last night. Cadet’s emails that were already on file with us were auto-enrolled. Please check filtered/junk folders just to be safe! If it went to your junk, normally if you “move” that email to your inbox, your email will recognize and allow the email to go to your inbox the next time. Some email services will also allow you to mark emails as “not junk” moving forward.

If you would like to add an additional email to our list to ensure both parents/cadets will receive the communications, you can subscribe using this link: http://eepurl.com/icQ5rL

We are working to build open lines of communication that work best for everyone. Please bear with us through this transition in the event there are any speed-bumps along the way. We hope that by allowing you to control who our emails go to ensure the right members of each family receive our important updates.
