    Board meeting has been moved to the Carson House in Marion , NC at 2 pm. This change is because of the covid19 so we can be outside instead in a closed area. There will be a zoom meeting set up for those who do not want to go a meeting place or can't come to the meeting.

    The time change is to give anyone who wants to attend the South Carolina Sons of the Revolution wreath ceremony at Fort Thicketty in Gaffney, SC. See the event description in the event date for more details.

    • Jonesborough Storytelling Center, 100 West Main Street, Jonesborough, TN

    Due to covid-19 restrictions, NPS has decided to cancel this training. Try to reschedule in 2021. 

    The goal of this very exciting workshop is:

    Participants will learn techniques for improving story creation, character development, and interpretive performance in order to tell stories in a more engaging way, and to gain a renewed perspective on adapting those stories to different types of audiences.

    Please let Will Caldwell (william_caldwell@nps.gov) or Ginny Fowler (virginia_fowler@nps.gov) know if you are still able to attend. We are also opening this training to NPS staff, but the OVTA are our priority.

    Ginny Fowler at Cowpens is offering the next Blackpowder Weapons Training at Cowpens NB on Saturday, August 29th from 10am to 1pm. 

    With this being right around the corner from the March, it would be good for anyone who missed the past few trainings and wanted to get certified to fire at Cowpens and Kings Mountain for the 240th commemoration.

    NPS Cut-off for registering is Saturday, August 15th. OVTA cutoff is Friday August 14 to give us time to get the count to the Park Service.
