Aaaaand We're Here Again

Yet again, WebHatter and I have officially reached the stupid part of the day. We're currently dying of laughter watching this video of Demons duck-walking down the Assault Course (they were instructed to quack like a duck as they walk as well) and one of them sounds like the sassiest duck you've ever heard. These are some of the competitors for Big Bad Basic tomorrow too.



(I may or may not be trying to get a sound bite of it as a text tone)

What's Up Next?

All right WebFolks, how about we take a (vague) sneak peek at what's happening for the rest of this week - 
Tomorrow is the exciting Big Bad Basic competition! As we mentioned earlier, at the beginning of each squadron's second time at the Assault Course, Basics compete in pugil stick competitions to find the top male and female Basic in each squadron. Tomorrow, the top Basics from all squadrons will face off against each other in another pugil stick competition to find the overall top male and female Basics in the Class of 2019.  It's always a great event and a ton of fun to watch! 
Then on Thursday, I'm sorry to say there will be no photos of BCT. There is an event occurring that day in Jacks and no media is allowed in to cover it. Your WebTeam will be taking the day off from BCT and get some time to relax. I suggest you all do the same! You know the drill - take the day to reconnect with your family, pay attention to your other kids (or pets), go see some daylight, and enjoy the time off from the computer. 
On Friday we have the March Back from Jacks. Just like the March Out, families are allowed to come watch. However, also like the March Out, it will begin early (step-off at 0800), so getting there early before roads close may be difficult if you do not have a military ID.
Saturday will be the Commandant's Luncheon where 2nd BCT Awards are handed out, similar to the Luncheon which occurred at the end of BCT 1 after Field Day.
Then BCT is over with! WebGuy will not be taking any photos of the Class of 2019 on Sunday or Monday because these are transitionary days for them. They'll be moving into their Academic Year squadrons and getting prepped for classes to start soon.
Luckily, the WebTeam will be back on Tuesday to cover the ever-exciting Acceptance Day Parade. We are awaiting confirmation on details for the parade, but the general idea is that the parade will be in the morning, followed by pinning-on ceremonies where the cadets receive their shoulderboards, and then they can spend a couple hours with families and friends and relax.
So that's it! We're almost to the end here! Hang in there, and you'll be talking with your cadet in no time Laughing

Photos are on their way!

As I posted on Facebook earlier, all photographers have returned and today's photos are well into processing at the moment. Some have started to go up but many are still on their way. Check in later this evening!

Airfield in the Afternoon

Hi Families!
Since there were not that many photos of powered flight this morning, I was able to go back out and get some more!

I also tried to get some pictures of the afternoon group out at Soaring, but the wind is really bad right now so they are on standby. I was able to get a couple pictures of the cadets pushing the gliders back into the hangers.

Airfield in the Morning

Hi Families!
Since we did not cover Powered Flight yesterday, we had a photographer out there this morning, but unfortunately due to high winds there was not much flying going on.

We were also able to cover soaring again today. Many of the cadets were flying solo, and some even recieved their wings!

We will try to get more soaring photos this afternoon, so stay tuned!

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Hello all, WebHatter here.

All of the days pictures are on their way into the Galleries!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, I felt I should leave you all with some pictures of your Basics today and the many expressions they had over the course of todays activities. Without futher adieu, please enjoy.

I give to you the many faces of Basics. From Aggressors to Hellcats. The day has been a busy one.










Be sure to check out all of the Galleries from todays events!

Soaring and Jumping

Hi Families!
Today I was able to get some pictures of Soaring and Jump.

Jump was on their last jump, so many of the cadets received their wings!

While they were waiting, a few of the cadets decided to practice another skill set.

Cadre Gallery

Hello all, WebHatter here.

Cadre parents! This one is for you!

If you know your Cadet has been a BCT Cadre this summer during either BCT 1 or currently in BCT 2 then don't forget to check out our BCT Cadre Gallery as well! We don't get to upload into it as often as we upload into the BCT Galleries but rest assured, we do get of pictures of your Cadets doing their Cadre thing! :P

We just uploaded a ton that were taken over the course of the last month or so into the Cadre Gallery right now so see what your Cadets have been up to!

Happy Hunting!
