First Parade - Term 2, 2017
Company Sports/PT Night
Congratulations to all unit members on another great term. It was very pleasing to see our largest new recruit intake ever perform so well on our term-1 Bivouac last term.
The unit will recommence parading in term-2 from Tue 25th April 2017. The dress for the entire company is PT Uniform. Unit PT Uniform includes company t-shirt (or other plain coloured tshirt) shorts, runners, 1LT water bottle & track suit (to put on after PT/Sport has finished).
Given it is also Anzac Day we will be having a short Anzac Day Catafalque Party Ceremony at Closing Parade. Catafalque Party (only) will be in Ceremonial uniform.

New Recruit Induction Weekend
this weekend 11-12th March 2017 - all New Recruits MUST attend
As all of you should already know, this weekend (11-12th March) we are staging a New Recruit Induction Training and Equipment Issue. A handout detailing all timings, locations and equipment required for the weekend was given out last night at Closing Parade to all new recruits.
There is no change to timings or locations as outlined in the handout given out last night for this weekend.
If you were absent from Parade on Tue (or have lost it) and need a copy of the handout for the weekend please email staff(at)206acu(dot)org(dot)au and we will email you a copy.
New Recruits Update
As we mentioned on New Recruit Info Night, we have experienced very strong demand to join the unit this cycle. We would love to take everyone however, we have limited equipment available to issue. Available places will go first to new recruits who have both submitted completed Joining Documents as well as having paid the unit joining fee.
We appreciate your ongoing support and we will do everything we can to ensure the maximum number of new recruits can join the unit this cycle. We are continuing to chase up kit returns from ex-cadets who have recently left the unit and our success in that will open additional positions this intake. We will have a clearer idea over the next 2-3 weeks of the max. final numbers we can accept. We will advise the max. positions available this intake by no later than Thur 9th March.
At this stage we recommend all potential new recruits parade with the unit up until Tue 7th March to ensure that you don’t miss any training.
We Are Accepting New Recruits Now!
Hurry - available positions Filling Fast
Its not too late to join the unit just because you missed the new Recruit Info Night but you will need to act quickly as available positions are filling fast. We have had very strong demand this cycle however there are still a few places left if you act quickly. If you dont join the unit now then you will need to wait until Aug 2017.
We will contact you about what you need to do next.
