Philippe Gore received the award as best overall cadet in the Basic Military Band course at the final parade at Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre.

Local cadets Philippe Gore, Daryl Rowse and Brad Hazelton were all recognized for excellence at Camp Vernon.

They are members of 1922 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps based in Abbotsford. Gore is from Abbotsford, while Rowse and Hazelton are from Aldergrove.

Gore won the award as best overall cadet in the first intake of the Basic Military Band Course at the Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre.

Gore attended a three-week Basic Military Band Course, where cadets were taught how to assemble, disassemble, maintain and store their instruments, how to apply music theory and play as members of an ensemble and to drill as a member of a band. Cadets also had time for fitness training and testing, sports and practice on the abseil tower.

Over the summer, 1,150 army, sea and air cadets from western Canada spent up to six weeks in the Okanagan Valley centre, expanding the training they receive at their home corps, developing new skills and making friends.
