    Hi,
    Wondering if anyone else here is heading to Academy Experience this week?
    Do we need a sleeping bag? or are cots provided? Does anyone know?
    See you there.

    Objee, is this the new, PC name for Beansprouting?


    Cots are provided, bring a sleeping bag if your like (as most cadets sleep in sleeping bags, or at least that's how we did it pre-comforters). I remember sleeping on the deck (floor) as a Beansprout, and let me tell you, Chase Hall decks are NOT the most comfortable places to sleep.:thumbdown:

    I'm the beansprout who was with golf company- the one from Kentucky with long lacrosse player style hair.

    It was pretty awesome, I'm really glad I went because it pushed me off the fence and onto the academy side.

    "Beansprout" has been dying a slow death over the last few years...it's officially the "Cadet for a Day" program in the fall and the "Academy Experience" program in the spring with the participants being called Cadet Candidates.
