    Has anyone's cadet participated in CPRC before?
    I am planning the CPRC events for Spring Break and am running out of ideas!
    I have Boy Scout troops, JROTC units and schools covered.
    Any other ideas of good places/groups for a CPRC cadet to visit/do?
    Thanks :thumb:

    We set up interviews with our local newspapers. Our one paper is took an article a cadet wrote and printed. Maybe interview with school newspaper or even local radio? Also, Founder's Day is on 19 March--

    It depends on the weather of the area. White over gray for warmer places and dress gray for colder.

    Basically about 30 minutes to an hour. It will vary depending on the audience and occasion.
    I think the format is going to be to show a WP DVD ('Leaders of a Lifetime' maybe), then a talk by the cadet (what interested him in WP, life there, his sport, summer experiences, major declared, etc) followed by a Q&A.
    Will have WP 'take home' materials too.
    I suspect that the cadet will wear dress gray for this CPRC.

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions!!
