2. Why?

I was a member of the Canadian Forces for 21 years and know firsthand how difficult it is to be from family sometimes and how expensive it can be.

2. Pourquoi?

J’étais un membre des forces canadiennes pendant 21 ans et sais comment ça peut être difficile d’être loin de notre famille et que souvent ça peut coûter trop cher pour la famille de visiter. Nous avons une salle vide qui ne demande qu’à être utilisée par des gens qui en ont besoin. C’est un privilège pour notre famille d’offrir ce service aux familles des élèves officiers du collège.

3. Comment la réserver?

Simplement envoie un courriel à Louise Smith, [email protected] ou à mon adresse courriel du collège. Nous regarderons la disponibilité de l’accommodation et ferons tout pour t’aider. Ce service sera premier venu, premier servi.

Petawawa Iron Man 2017

Article by: OCdt Mackenzie Allan

The Petawawa Ironman has been around since 1983. Since that time and especially over the past dozen years or so – cadets from RMC have competed.

This year was no exception as OCdts Landry, Boileau, Guerreo, Choquette, and Allan proudly represented the college.

The race started at 0400 hrs and finished in the afternoon. With the 50km consisting of 32 km of rucking, 4km of portage with a canoe, 8km paddling, and a final 6km to the finish.  The rucksack is weighed for 40 pounds before water or food was loaded.

This event is not for the faint of heart. However, I would recommend that anyone with a half decent fitness level or better – try the race at least once regardless of what trade or element you belong too.

From a personal point of view, It gave me a sense of accomplishment after I finished the race.

In the CAF physical fitness should be promoted. Organizing events like these take a lot of work from the people manning the water stations and first aid to the organizers at the top; it’s an effort from both ends of the chain of command to show that physical fitness is an important part of being a CAF member.

I hope that next year and for years to come, RMC continues to send cadets and staff to this high profile, popular and very challenging event.
