When we talk about "Racing for the Cannon" we literally mean race for the cannon! Our race trophies were so popular last year we brought them back. ...and took it a step further. The overall male and female winners will take home some real hard-wear. We worked with Gillmor Ordnance of Old Fort Ohio on a set of custom forged 8 pound cannon balls.
