The Colonel Commandant has advised me that I Have used incorrect terminology in my original posting for a "Gun Camp" to be held on Artillery Day. "Gun Camp" is a term used by the Armoured Corps to describe their gathering for an exercise. The equivalent Artillery term should be "Practice Camp". Hmmm, unfortunately that term does not resonate with the civilian entities that I need to coordinate. How does the term "Artillery Demonstration" work? Any comments or other suggestions?
Saint Cecilia Dinner 2004

Oh, and there were awards and presentations. Are you willing to write up a better story telling us who was there and who was awarded what trophy? Drop me an email.
