August 20th will start at 0600 with a diagnostic physical fitness test consisting of 2 minutes of sit-ups, 2 minutes of push-ups and a 2 milte run. This is the standard physical fitness test for the Army. Cadets will then have time to shower and eat before meeting at the ROTC office (512 Davis St or in case of rain Peter's Hall Gym) for issuance of gear and acceptance of any remaining paperwork not previously turned in. From 1:30-6:00 pm everyone will head to Bisset Park to go tubing on the New River. This is provided through Tangent Outfitters and will cost $10-15 per person.

Additional information will be given by Cadets who have been to specialty schools.
