ROTC test fires cannon at Hughes on Aug. 20

August 19, 2009

If you are near Hughes Stadium on Aug. 20, you may hear the sound of cannon fire. No need to be alarmed - it's just a test!

Time-honored tradition

Colorado State University’s Army ROTC program has a time-honored tradition to fire their cannon during home football games. The cannon is fired to celebrate any score on the Ram’s scoreboard, to mark the beginning of halftime and the conclusion of the game.

Test fire Thursday morning

This year, the ROTC cadets will test fire the cannon between 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 20 at the Hughes Stadium parking lot.
