This years Christmas Mess Dinner is on Wednesday December 13th from 1730-2030 (5:30-8:30PM). For the new cadets that have never been to a traditional mess:

“A Mess Dinner, originating over 200 years ago, is one of the most coveted and important traditions of the Canadian Forces. It is a time to appreciate the comradeship and company of fellow service members and guests and to savour fine cuisine in an elegant setting. Tradition remains to this day one of the prime ingredients in air cadet esprit de-corps.”
