I’d like to give a huge thank you to Lt Col Grace Edinburgh for serving as the Coordinator for the Wing Cadet Competition.  These events are difficult to put on, as they rely on a large amount of precise preparation and specialized facilities to conduct a fair & exciting competition.  

Thank you’s are also in order for Lt Col Edinburgh’s staff – without their assistance, we could not put on an activity like this:

  • Major Lani Cahill
  • Group Six Cadets –
  • Lt Col Cliff Chabot
  • Cadet McCoy
  • Major Dave Kalahar
  • Cadet Taft
  • Major Lisa Cherry
  • Cadet Chambles
  • Capt Seth Martin
  • Cadet Cahill
  • Lt Col Tony Diaz
  • Cadet McCorkle

 

  • Cadet Uhles

I look forward to ALL eight California Wing Groups competing in Wing Cadet Competition next year in 2021.  Start practicing now so we can have an even exciting and challenging event!
