3:00 – 4:00pm – Army Reserves Outdoor Challenge
SATURDAY MARCH 9TH
2:00 – 3:00pm – Army Reserves Outdoor Challenge
Army Reserve soldiers from the Halifax-based 36 Canadian Brigade Group are deploying to the AOSRV to showcase their outdoor skills and capabilities while highlighting some of the hundreds of exciting part-time jobs in the area – and they’re showing up in style with their Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicle (TAPV).
The Army Reserve Outdoor Challenge live show is coming to the main stage to show the audience some of the exciting outdoor skills and training offered to Army Reserve soldiers. The challenge will consist of a high-line traverse from the rafters to the main stage, an assault boat race across the pool, and the mechanical breaching of a door. Attendees can even test their breaching skills with the battering ram.
The soldiers will also be showcasing weaponry, mountain operations equipment, and Army outdoor survival gear. Stop by the Army Reserve recruiting booth for a lesson in knot tying – every hour on the hour the Mountain Operations soldiers will be conducting a demonstration on the five essential knots of outdoor operations.
Army Reserve recruiters will be on site and available to provide details on the hundreds of jobs available in the local area along with information on how to get full-time summer employment (and earn up to $12,000 in your first summer) and our tuition reimbursement program.
