RAF Cadets Through to National Finals
RAF Section of the CCF claim victory in the Eastern Region Royal Air Squadron Trophy Competition.
The RAF Section of the CCF claimed victory in the Eastern Region Royal Air Squadron Trophy Competition on Sunday 28 November. There were two teams representing the school, with “Kimbolton 1” taking 1st place and “Kimbolton 2” finishing in 7th place, out of 14 schools. Both teams were managed by Mr Bradshaw.
The competition comprises six events: Aircraft Recognition, Command Task, First Aid, RAF Knowledge, Shooting, and Drill. It was very closely contested, with three schools in contention for the top spot, and very few points to separate them.
Kimbolton 1 achieved 3rd place in Aircraft Recognition and Drill, 2nd Place in First Aid, and 1st Place in RAF Knowledge. Jack was both the best shot from Kimbolton and also scored the highest individual mark in the RAF knowledge. Oliver scored highest for Kimbolton in the Aircraft Recognition.
The final top three positions were:
- 3rd Place: Woodbridge School
- 2nd Place: King's School Grantham
- 1st Place: Kimbolton 1
The 1st place trophy (The Ron Miller Cup) was awarded to joint captains Toby and Chris; Kimbolton 1 now go forward to the National Finals on Sunday 6th March, along with the 2nd and 3rd placed teams.
Kimbolton 2 also had a very respectable day, with special mention to Benjy for achieving the highest individual score for the team in both RAF Knowledge and Aircraft Recognition, and to the First Aid team who finished in 3rd place overall.
