Members of 116th Independent Field Battery of the Royal Canadian Artillery, led by battery commander Maj. Jon Baker, trekked across the field north of the Fort Frances Curling Club on Saturday afternoon. Reservists were put to the test in the extreme cold, practising use of the Arctic tent, skis, and other specialized equipment, as well as basic winter survival skills, during the aptly-named “Exercise Frosty Gunner.”
