Visitors & Cadets Clearing In – Staff Meet the Challenges
The College had the honour of hosting staff college delegations from Colombia and Denmark last week. With international recognition as a world-class military institution, the Royal Military College of Canada regularly welcomes visiting delegations from all over the world. The visitors received briefings on some functions of RMCC and toured the campus on historic Point Frederick.
In the top photo – Principal – Dr. H.J. (Harry) Kowal (back row centre) joined Commander W. M. (Mike) Mooz – Chief of Staff (front row centre right) in welcoming the 23 person visit from Colombia. Both gentlemen were filling in for the Commandant and the rest of the senior staff who were unable to be on hand because of other commitments away from the College.

Third photo includes the Commandant, BGen Al Meinzinger, College Chief Warrant Officer, Keith Davidson and Dean of the Division of Continuing Studies, acting VP of academic studies, Dr. Pierre R. Roberge with the guests from Denmark.
Both visits were very well-planned, productive and informative.
In other news, RMCC is once again alive with activity with all officer-cadets now back on college grounds. Sports teams have been working out – both the (M) & (W) soccer teams along with the (M) rugby team have participated in games – see sports section for results.
