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) for issuance of gear and acceptance of any remaining paperwork not previously submitted. After stowing gear and a meal we will meet at 1330 and head to Bisset Park to go tubing on the New River or Dublin, VA for Frisbee Golf.
On Aug 28, we will start the day at 0600 with regular PT followed by meal/Hygiene. At 1030 we will head to Bisset Park for various sports activities and a BBQ at which time upper class cadets will give a Safety Brief, you be introduced to the Cadre and Senior Class cadets, told about Ranger Club and the Ranger Challenge Team.
