Super Lab was held at the Air Force Academy’s, Jack’s Valley – March 05-06, 2022
Cadets across the Golden Buffalo Battalion had the opportunity to further enhance their land navigation skills during a “Super Lab” this past weekend down in Jack’s Valley at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.
All GBB junior Cadets (MSIIIs) attended the event alongside several freshman and sophomore Cadets in order to prepare for their land navigation assessment at Advanced Camp – Cadet Summer Training (CST).
Cadets first received an overview of the day and safety brief. Then they conducted a written land navigation test designed to replicate the types of questions they will see on their assessment. Cadets who passed the written test conducted the land navigation practical solo. Cadets who did not pass the written test were paired with Seniors (MSIVs) to refine their skills. All MSIII Cadets conducted the practical course solo to prepare for Advance Camp.
All in all, the trip down south was a success and the Cadets did a great job at navigating the rough terrain of the Colorado foothills.
