    Ipods after swab summer....yay or nay?
    Digital cameras....same question.

    A friend of mine said her daughter was talking to an AFA cadet (a jr.) via webcam....is that kosher for upperclass cadets at CGA?

    So many questions....thank goodness for the wisdom and experience of the SAF! :thumb:

    Thanks in advance

    Last year, our Swab was able to bring IPOD (and cell phone) when travelling to Eagle - also, he didn't bring his, but others had digital cameras for Eagle. Not sure about the webcam for upper class - my Cadet is still 4/c.

    left off some info

    Also, once back from Eagle, IPOD was allowed until after Swab Summer was over.

    Ok, thank you! Maybe we will mail his Ipod with his phone prior to Eagle.

    There are probably issues with bandwidth with a webcam. I know AFA has billions of dollars to spend on internet service and golf carts, but unfortunately, CGA doesn't have that kinda money. :frown:
