The 65 Squadron hosted its first annual Spaghetti and Comedy Gong show night on Nov. 22 at the Ponoka Air Cadet hall.

This event was a fun event intended to supplement the effective speaking portion of the cadet training program, with those doing a comedy routine gaining credit towards their effective speaking performance objective.

Overall, four cadets and one officer participated in a comedy sketch, working on developing their speech and presentation in front of a crowd.  With the success of this year’s event it is intended that in the future this event will be opened up to the public in a “Just for Laughs” style event with local talent encouraged to participate.

The idea for this event was through the Ponoka Air Cadet Society Chairperson, Sandra Simpson who wanted to stimulate an interest in the local cadet unit’s effective speaking program and the competitions that are available to cadets for effective speaking through the Air Cadet League of Canada.
