MISSOURI IRISH BRIGADE NEWS & DISPATCHES
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

Kace is missing his pards. Is anyone interested in a small social distance beer at his house on Saturday night? It is looking like a nice evening. He'd love to gather with a few of his pards around a fire in the back for a beverage or two! Reply in the Members Camp Facebook Page if interested.

May 29, 2020
The following was posted on the Pipestone Civil War Days Facebook page
After much discussion Pipestone Civil War Days Committee has made the very difficult decision that for the health of our participants and visitors, we are canceling the 2020 Pipestone Civil War Days event. We are working diligently to determine if it is feasible to have the event next year rather than or in addition to the regularly scheduled bi-annual event. We will provide updates as they are available. We thank you for your understanding and support and will miss seeing you all this year. #PCWD #OnlyInPipestone #BeKindBeSafe

Spring Muster Cancelled
March 16, 2020
Due to recommendations by both state and county officials, we will be moving our MIB Spring Muster, to a time later in the year. I have been receiving emails on a daily basis this week about events that are canceled. We do not know how long this is going to last.
As it stands, Cow Town May 1-3 will now be our first event. I am in communication with the manager at Cow Town, and they are currently planning to have the event, but things are changing on a daily basis.
The fact it happens in May and not April, might just be its saving grace. We will be keeping our fingers crossed the pandemic is in hand by then, and the state of emergency has been lifted.
I will keep everyone informed.
