Call to Arms Schedule Status
April 22, 2021
It looks like we will have four events this year. Cow Town, this weekend, 200th commemoration of the Santa Fe trail July, 16-18, Pilot knob in September, 24-26, Stones River in October, 22, - 24 everything else on my radar has been canceled. I am waiting for a couple of confirmation letters, but look for official event sign ups next week.
We may pick up some more stuff as the year goes on. Thunder in the Woods gave us a two week notice last year, and not much more the time before that. There are still a few things that might go off.
Other things on the Calendar may need more driving, so we can look forward to that
