Stanley Canyon Hike!

Hey Familes!

It's finally Friday!  You know what that means!  I'm sure you have been counting the days.  No more colored hats after tomorrow.  How will you ever find them in our photos, lol. 

So, today was the hike to Stanley Canyon Reservoir.  There were lots of smiling faces.  Unfortunately the reservoir has been drained temporarily, so it wasn't as fun as in past years, when the basics got to go swimming.  Not sure they would have today anyway.  Rain was in the forecast.

Here are a few pictures.  The rest are up in the the BMT gallery.  Speaking of that.  After tomorrow's coverage there will be no more new photos going into that gallery.  As the year progresses we will be adding new galleries by subject to make your photo search easier.  By the end of the year the page will look like this.

Ok, here are a few photos from the hike.



Tomorrow we will have all the BMT Graduation events.  Concluding remarks will begin about  9:30ish on Black Field after the march and end about 10:30am and may include the Wings of Blue depending on the weather.  DoD card holders can observe the remarks from the bleachers if they have access with the following understanding.  They MAY NOT interact with the CC's at any time and the CC's (Cadet Candidates) will not be released from training to meet with them. 

The Preps will get their phones back at some point after graduation.  They should be able to keep them for safety purposes from then on, but again, their usage will be closely regulated in the beginning.  They will get a full briefing about what they can and cannot do.  Please do yourself and  them a favor and respect the rules as they are announced. 

BMT coverage is almost at an end, but next week we begin our coverage for the Academic Year.  There will be so much more to see.   Just don't think you are finishing "WebGuying".    You'll just visiting us a bit more casually.  I will tell you more about all of that in my blog tomorrow evening.

Ok, that's it for me for this entry.  Check back tomorrow for more graduation event coverage.  Have a great evening!
