The Manitoba Old-Tyme and Bluegrass Society (MOBS) was incorporated as a non-profit organization on February 14, 1991. Its mandate is to preserve and promote old-time and bluegrass music fostering the use of acoustic stringed instruments. MOBS is run by a volunteer board of directors. All people (members or not) are welcome to enjoy bluegrass jamming at various locations. Camp-outs with workshops, open mike events and professional performances are held throughout the year. Members receive the “Dill Pickle Rag” which is our monthly newsletter. It contains details on a variety of bluegrass related events and ideas.

The Saturday night supper proceeds went as a donation to CancerCare, RV Park full of Music and Campfires plus Plenty of Music at the Birtle Town Hall. The weather was also very accommodating with plenty of sunshine and some winds but NO rain!
