Here are some tips on how to have a successful tagging shift: 

1. Dress and Deportment: Make sure your uniform looks clean and sharp! The better your uniform looks, the higher the chances you'll catch their attention. Be on your best behaviour at ALL times, someone is always looking at you. Don't slouch, lean against the doors/walls/windows, chew gum, eat while tagging, or be swearing. 

2. Be polite: You are a Cadet and one of the finest youth of Scarborough. Whether they donate or not, be kind, polite, and respectful.  Make sure you are using "Ma'am" or Sir" at all times along with your "Please" and "Thank You". You can also help them in various ways such as holding the door open if their hands are full. 

3.  Ask EVERYONE: Ask each and every person that passes by you. The donation amount does not matter, you are still getting something rather than nothing by not asking. Ensure you have an opener, for example "Excuse me Ma'am/Sir, would you like to help support the Air Cadets?" or "Can you help support the Air Cadet program please Ma'am/Sir?

4. Don't avoid conversations: People will be curious and want to know more about what you are doing and what an Air Cadet is. Don't be afraid to tell them all about what tagging is and all the amazing things you can do as an Air Cadet. This can be a great way for you to help grow our squadron!

5. SMILE! The best tip is to put on your biggest smile while tagging. You can change someone's mood instantly with a smile and maybe even get them to change their mind about donating to you!
