Drill nights take place every Thursday night during term time between 1830 - 2130 at THQ. We meet together at the start of the night at Shareholders, where we are brought up to date with current Unit matters. After Shareholders, we attend lessons. Typical lessons include:
Theoretical navigation tuition
Practical leadership tasks
CMI leadership qualifications
Social Events such as Trafalgar Night and end of term parties
Drill nights provide a basis for Sea Weekends and our Easter and Summer Deployments where students consolidate what they have learned throughout the year in a practical environment.
Within the unit we have a bar where most unit members will retire to once lessons have been completed. This is a more relaxed part of the evening where people are free to chat and socialise.
