All of the above events, with the exception of CE II, are 'Induction' events. Every New Recruit (NR) must attend an Induction event after the club has cleared their costume but before they can attend other events. The NR will spend some time with a staff member learning the ropes and will also crew for a while looking after other members in costume to get a feel of what to expect. They will then go out for the first time in their own costume, proudly wearing their new UKG decal, which is a very happy, rewarding and memorable experience after all the hard work and effort they have put into creating their costume and ensuring it is 100% movie accurate.
