AF/NROTC European Championships


ROTC instructor SHAPE MHS
| March 1, 2014

On 1 March the cadets of SHAPE BE-931st will host the Air Force/Navy Junior

ROTC European Drill Championships. Eleven schools, 3 Navy and 8 Air Force

will take part with over 190 cadets performing.

The events will start with an opening ceremony at 0900 in the high school

gym. The first event, team inspection, will start at 0930 in the cafeteria.

The teams will go directly from inspection to regulation drill in the high

school gym. For the remainder of the day events, Color Guard, Saber

Exhibition, Rifle Exhibition, Unarmed Exhibition, Armed SOLO Exhibition, and

Armed DUO Exhibition, will be taking place in the cafeteria and the high

school gym. The last event of the day will be all of the cadets taking the

floor for "IDR" or what the cadets call "knock out". Commands are called by

an ex-Army Drill Sergeant. If the command is not performed correctly the

cadet is tapped/knocked out. The day will end with an awards ceremony at

approximately 1700 in the high school gym.

Please come out and support all of these hard working cadets.
