Wigston shoot to the top

Article posted: Nov 27, 2009 by sl1

Cadets and staff from 1461 Wigston Sqn answered the call to arms and joined other local units in a laser fire fight! They were invited to help test a new Laser Force arena in Leicester run by Fg Off Michael Nash, 2502 Sqn, and after a quick training session, they joined the ranks and battled against other Squadrons in a round robin ‘fight to the death’. After working their way around the arena lit by neon lights and under the cover of the smoke machine, the team were declared the winners with the highest score of the night going to cadet Tom Shaw. Fg Off Tim Hargraves, OiC 1461 Sqn said, “ It’s nice to see that the cadets team spirit can be put to good use for social events such as this. Let’s hope they can do the same on the ranges next year!
