The 2011 Season

The 2011 season is upon us and I'm so looking forward to running around in wool on hot summer days and blowing powder.

I had been hopeful of enjoying my first national event this year, since this would be the 150th year since the first year of the Civil War--which pretty much would have mean 1st Manassas (Battle of Bull Run).  But our unit officers talked us out of it because of bad experiences they had at 1st Manassas in the past.  Well, next year is promising for a national, at least, and I'll be going to Guyandotte this year for their 150th.

A lot of events are planned--this will be my personal record year.  I have about 15 events planned, a number of which are not part of my unit, and more that just haven't been scheduled yet.  I'll try to keep up-to-date on this blog as I attend the events.  Most of the time I'll be wearing gray, but at least once I'll be in blue (which Girth will make sure I live up to).
