Long Range Black Powder Match
A good friend just dropped me a note via email informing me that this weekend, July 28 and 29, 2012, the The 22nd annual long range black powder artillery match will be held at the Camp Grayling Military Installation.
For those who are interested we recommend the annual Historic Long Range Artillery Competition sponsored by Loomis Battery, Inc.- with the cooperation of the Michigan Army National Guard. It is held on the third weekend of July each year. The program is open to the public as a free spectator event at Camp Grayling, Michigan, about 250 miles north of Detroit.
Participation as a competitor is by invitation. The program features competition with pre-1898 field guns and mortars at ranges up to 1200 yards. Up to 24 full size field guns and a dozen mortars can participate in this program.
Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend, but I do wish that I could.
