The Loomis Battery artillery event is sponsored by Loomis’ Battery of Michigan Light Artillery. The general public is invited to watch the competition at Camp Grayling.
Spectators get an extra thrill out of the mortar match since the balls are quite large–from 6" to 8"–and are easily seen throughout their slow trajectory. Mortars fire at a downrange flag and the winner is the one with the aggregate of closest hits.
