REMEMBER, THE BASICS:
When tagging, the same principles apply as any time you are out in the public eye – not only are you raising money, but you are also representing the 132 Squadron, and the Canadian Cadet Movement. Keeping this in mind, my best advice is:
-Always be polite, an opening line such as “Excuse me sir/ma’am, would you like to support the Royal Canadian Air Cadets” or something along those lines works well, as please/thank you, etc.
-Ensure your uniform is at your personal best. Do your uniform the night before, and remember that people will be looking at you – slouching, gum chewing, horseplay, and swearing will turn people away, and make them less likely to donate.
-Make sure to answer any questions honestly, people may be curious about what you are and what you do – who knows, maybe the Squadron will get some new recruits out of it!
-And finally, smile! Being happy is contagious!
Good luck, have fun, and make us proud!
Remember, do not to wear your name tags. Name tags are not allowed during tagging events.
NOTICE TO PARENTS: We need drivers to transport Cadets during our tagging weekend. Your help is greatly appreciated (bring proof of insurance and drivers license).
