    PICKET POST - Morganton, Kentucky

    May 13-15, 2016

    Sponsored by the WIG and Hairy Nation Boys.

    CS forces will be commanded by Herb Coats. Federal forces will be commanded by Ivan Ingraham.(one company of Hairy Nation Boys, one company of SCAR)

    Each side will have a 100 participant force cap with a goal of three Companies of 25 rifles each. We will also have cavalry for each side.

    This will be an immersion campaigner event.

    Cost: $20 ($10 for landowner stipend; dirt cheap, really, and $10 for food for the weekend).

    Each participant will need 40 rounds and caps for the weekend and needs to bring two one-gallon jugs of water to establish water points within their area as the water on-site is not potable despite the numerous streams and ponds.
