October 2007: Loose Cannons Take on the US Marines at the Volksluaf Ultimate “Mud Run” Challenge


Loose Cannons Push themselves to the Limit and Beyond

Cannon employees recently challenged themselves on a marine designed ROPES course in Bakersfield, CA. The “Loose Cannons” team received a hands-on lesson in teamwork, communication and core strength when they took part in the Marine’s Volkslauf Ultimate Challenge. The ROPES course offered over 75 truly challenging obstacles strategically crafted to test strength, problem-solving skills, creativity, and cooperation. With about 8 MILLION gallons of water on the course, this course pushes your limits. Although it rained in the morning, 70 extreme Cannon associates, family and friends came out for the event.

“Each year we search to find an event that will challenge and energize us. This year was definitely not a let down.” Mike Cannon, President.

The Volkslauf Ultimate Challenge brings hundreds of daring individuals year after year to raise money for the Toys for Tots. Over $35,000 was raised at this year’s event.
