Cadets2 Scrub Jan. 21-22 Camp; Reschedule for Feb. 5

Open House Postponed to Feb. 5 as well

After the official National Weather Service bulletin of 3:00PM, Friday, January 20, Cadets2 administration has scrubbed the launch of the January 20-21 rehearsal camp due to winter weather conditions which are anticipated to arrive overnight Friday and linger into Saturday afternoon.  Accumulations of 4-6 inches of snow and up to a tenth of an inch of ice are now forecast for the Allentown and surrounding regions.

The corps has rescheduled the camp for Sunday, February 5 at the same location, South Mountain Middle School in Allentown, Pa.

Corps director Eric Kitchenman, in conjunction with members of the YEA! team, made the call at 4PM Friday saying, “Our commitment is first and foremost to the safety of our members, staff and volunteers.  When we started looking at all of the options, it made the most sense to postpone and head into the February 5 weekend with a full head of steam. We looked at the weather over the past two days and YES, it was a tough call. Clearly, it's going to be sunny Sunday and we will be missing rehearsal. But, transportation is critical and when young folks are involved, we need to be safe.”

Rich Hammond, Program Coordinator for Cadets2 said, “We have to emphasize how important the February camp will be to the progress of the 2012 corps.  The staff and members are eager to move forward with the program and need to keep the positive momentum and the energy level high. With a February 5 camp leading directly into a February 11-12 camp, we will be able to accomplish a great deal with rehearsals over three of seven days.”

Corps members will be contacted individually to transfer their RSVP from the January 21-22 camp to February 5.

The Open House scheduled for January 22 for prospective members and their families from the Lehigh Valley will also be rescheduled for Sunday, February 5.

Additionally, watch for special Super Bowl-themed events surrounding the camp for the February 5 rehearsal date.
