6 November – Urban Hike One Day FTX

On Saturday, 6 November we’ll be running a one day FTX (field training exercise). It will start in Thames Park (15 Ridout St S, London, ON N6B 3N9), at 08:00 where we’ll hike for about 8 km on the Thames Valley Pathway (TVP), to Springbank Park (1085 Commissioners Rd W, London, ON N6K 4Y6). We’ll have an MRE lunch, and field training lessons in the afternoon. The day will wrap up at 16:00 (4 PM). Normally FTX are a full weekend from Friday night to Sunday afternoon and we hope later in the cadet training year we’ll be able to return back to overnight exercises.
