April Fools


#1

Anyone got some easy and safe April fools pranks that I could play on staff or other cadets? I’m stumped when it comes to ideas, so I’m open to any! Thanks.

Only boring people abide by that rule.

I heard a good wheeze that Gliding was paused just for an Easter weekend.

I’ve been pranking people all day - I actually only found out about that rule around 1pm today. I agree with Baldrick - only boring people abide by that rule!

fool.

One for next year if you abide by the April fools joke, but with cadets being in school all day I think we can add a few hours :joy:

I love it! Also yes - if I could have done it before 12 I would have, not my fault it’s illegal for me not to go to school.


#10

All the old favorites… camouflage paint, bubble for a compass, sky hooks, send a cadet for a long weight (wait)…


#11

Thank you! We have some leadership stuff at my sqn tonight so not sure I could do some of these, but great suggestions all the while!


#12

I saw one today about issuing MTP pace sticks for DIs in the field.


#13

Due to budget cuts the ACF, ATC and SCC are to be disbanded with the units merged into new community based CCF units.


#14

Ahhh, the old purple beret.


#15

Thanks for all these replies! Some of these would be excellent, but I’m only a (nearly) first class cadet and therefore I wouldn’t be able to pull these off.

Belatedly …

Nothing will ever beat the original baseball cap replacing the beret that was circulated several years ago and almost believed by the majority of the corps


#18

Sorry … this is better


#19

I hope that money is being put into developing Google Nose. That was a great idea.

One I saw yesterday, and the cadets fell for it -
