Corps of Cadets Platoon Tactical Challenge
The Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets will participate in the Platoon Tactical Challenge, an all-day, corps-wide competition on Saturday, March 17.
The Platoon Tactical Challenge is a training exercise made up of six stations. In all, 22 platoons of cadets will run the course and complete the challenges at each station in the fastest time possible.
The station at the War Memorial Gym pool will involve the use of rubber rifles.
The challenge will begin at 5 a.m. and will continue most of the afternoon, rain or shine. The community is invited to watch. Other locations will include the Drillfield, the Duck Pond, and the corps' obstacle course on Smithfield Road.
Scoring will be based on how fast the platoon can complete events without picking up penalties.
To report any issues during the event, call 540-231-4322.
