Eventful Saturday 11 September 2010

A few minutes before noon a bunch of mean looking pirates stormed up the signal gun hill in the Tygerberg Nature Reserve and took control of the gun and the 3 CAOSA gunners present.

They forced us to load the 6pdr and insisted that gunner, Patrick Shannon, instruct their fearless leader, Roxy on how to fire the shot. It took us a few minutes to load the gun and at 12h05 Roxy fired the gun!
