This course will be held every two years. The total class size is 95 students and at the last course they were full to capacity.

This is also only the second time the Instructor’s Certification Course has been offered. They ran it as a trial at the last Cannon Course and found that most of the students were in favor of it.

The scheduled instructor's as of today are Matt Switlik, the Paulson Brothers, and Paul Barnett of South Bend Replicas, Inc. This is a real opportunity to meet the experienced and established old timers in this exciting and fun sport of safely shooting black powder muzzle loading Artillery.

Included for the first time in this course November 5th & 6th, is this new information on naval artillery and Lyle guns, construction, firing, loading procedures, and safety.
