More than 160 army cadets participated in practical training activities to re-enforce lessons learned at their home corps.

The weekend marked the first time the Green Gopher included 10 corps in total, the farthest north coming from Yorkton, the farthest west from Moose Jaw and the farthest east from our own Brandon/Shilo troops.

Throughout the weekend, army cadets participated in basic to advanced field skills such as erecting various types of military shelters, construction of improvised shelters, safe handling of field stores including stoves and lanterns, navigation with GPS systems, and setting up and occupying a bivouac site.
