The classes for Tuesday evenings are published in the training schedule and revised as required.
Optional training is conducted on specified weekends or other weeknights. These include trips, gliding, sporting activities and events, and being members of the drill team and the pipes and drums band. Optional training activities are usually scheduled in advance and are published in the training calendar.
