Field Day

The 2016 Southern California Field Day is in the books.  Congratulations, again to the Cadets and Counselors from “The Bridge” on winning the Field Day trophy with a points-per-boy average of 24.0.  The remaining top clubs are:

  • Escondido URC (1536), points per boy = 12.68
  • Artesia Trinity (1512), points per boy = 10.6
  • Crossroads (1565), points per boy = 9.25
  • Bellflower Rosewood (1521), points per boy = 8.11

Seventeen clubs participated in our Field Day: 190 Cadets and 57 Counselors.

Our thanks to the counselors from First URC of Chino for their outstanding support of our annual Field Day, and to the support staff of Ontario Christian High School.

We also want to thank each club and its counselors who arrived early, set up, and stayed late tearing down and stowing all the equipment for all of the events.

The Field Day results are provided here – Scoresheet 2016

General Field Day Information

Here is the registration form.  Please remember to print out three copies.  One for the registration table; one for marksmanship and the third for archery.


Remember to bring duct tape and a marker for your boys.  The registrar has limited supplies.

Morning events will run from 9am until 12:30pm.  Afternoon events from 12:30pm until 2:30pm

Head counselors must now certify on the registration form each boy having received the Archery and Marksmanship badges
Three copies of the registration form should be turned in at the time each clubs registers

  • Clubs are encouraged to fill out these forms with all boys in the club prior to Saturday morning.  Only boys who do not show up at Field Day need to be crossed off on the copy turned into the Field Day Registrar.
  • The remaining two copies will be distributed to the Archery and Marksmanship events.

Some clubs have older boys that may want to participate in the Landmarks event.

  • Orange-colored event cards will indicate Cadets who may participate in Landmarks, e.g., Group “A” boys, or first year Cadets
  • Blue-colored event cards will be the same for all other Cadets
  • Yellow-colored event cards remain for the Relay Race events

Field Day Results:


This rules booklet is  marked 2011 (note that the pages are scrambled for booklet-printing); The ages for the four groups have been determined by Council (for a few years now) to be as follows:

  • Group A: 2nd grade and below
  • Group B: Grades 3-4
  • Group C: Grades 5-6
  • Group D: Grades 7-8 (9th & up may not complete, but can help out and run in the Counselor footrace)

And it has come up that perhaps we need a gun waiver form. There is a waiver already over on the AGI page, but possibly we could use this one too/instead. More details (and a pdf version to download) when possible…

  1. Is there information on the website for Field Day and are there events for the Junior Cadets?

  2. Hi Randy, thanks for dropping by!

    Currently (due to my procrastination) I have not yet migrated the online information about Field Day to the new website. Hopefully I can get around to that soon.

    I am not aware of any events especially for Junior Cadets (except the Landmarks activity which is reserved for group A (2nd grade and below) cadets (and maybe 1st-time cadets of any age), but there’s a council meeting coming up in a few weeks, you can start a discussion about that!

  3. Please send the dates for field day to me when they are planned. Also, in the list of clubs I didn’t see our club. I am the head counselor from First Christian Reformed Church of Bellflower (BellOne). Please see that we are added to the list of clubs. Thank you.

  4. Hi Gerrit, I’ll send you an email off-line and make sure you and BellOne get all hooked up…

  5. The field day guide from last year contained a different method for shelter building than was used at the actual field day. This greatly confused our cadets because we taught them what was in the guide! Could we please get an updated guide? In a few weeks we will be teaching shelter building again, but we don’t know what to teach! Thanks!

  6. I will look around for one. Also, Dave Lewis (as the Field Day scorekeeper) has all the “official paperwork.

  7. Mark,

    I have looked at the 2011 Field Day guide (green cover) and compared it against the last couple (2008, and 2009) that I have here at the house. They all say the same thing. At this point, I can say that it looks like the rules are the same. If you have a Field Day guide that says something different than last year (2011), I would say you should go with the 2011 Field Day guide. Also, I would contact the Bethany head counselor (Brad Peterson ( and confirm with him.

  9. Is there a copy of the California Penal Code Firearms for Minors waiver on the website somewhere so we can get them signed by parents?

  10. Is that the waiver we will need for field day? We have a copy of a different waiver form that references the California Penal code section 12552 – Furnishing Firearms to Minors under 18 without permission of parent. I can send a scanned image of it. I am not sure where it came from, though it says Southern California Council Calvinist Cadet Corps across the top.
