[MULTIPLE UPDATES]

Here is the tentative, much abbreviated, 2021 show list, updated yet again on May 31. Tentative is the key word.

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is that everything is tentative. Even most of the events listed to go are very much up in the air.

If you have additions or changes, please email (BowmanOutside@gmail.com) or contact me onFacebook (Dale Bowman), Twitter (@BowmanOutside) or Instagram (@BowmanOutside).

That said, and I fully expect to be doing many updates, here is the list for 2021:
