The 6th NC of the Carolina Legion is kicking around the idea of going to McDowell in May.  They have invited us to join them for the event.  Twenty or so rifles will make for a company.  A bunch of folks went a few years ago, and short of getting rained out, it was a good time. 

The next event on the schedule is Cheraw on the first weekend in April.  Then it's On To Richmond in Newport News, VA on June 3rd & 4th.  Maps to both events are in the Map Room.

The observance of Confederate Memorial Day in Columbia is Saturday, May 6th.  It will begin at Elmwood Cemetery at 10:00 am with a ceremony by the United Daughters of the Confederacy.  After the ceremony there will be a march to the state house for another ceremony at 12:00 hosted by the Sons of Confederate Veterans.  Directions can be found here.
