Rendezvous Information

We hold two rendezvous a year at the club site.  There are three areas designated for camping: Primitive area (all visable equipment pre-1840), Open Camping area (a mix of primitive and modern camping equipment) and Tin Tipi (RVs and trailers).  There is also an area set aside for Traders’ Row.

You’ll find several ranges to test your skills including hawk and knife, archery, rifle, pistol, trade gun, trade pistol and usually a number of specialty shoots.

The third weekend in May is our Spring Open Rendezvous.  Primitive dress is encouraged but not required, except for those choosing to camp in our primitive camping area. Primitive dress is required at our Fall Primitive Rendezvous usually held the third weekend in October.

NEW!  We want everyone to have a great experience at rendezvous.  We set out the following rules so everyone knows what to expect and what is expected of them.  Please read the rules before you fill out your registration form:

Campfire Rules:

1). You must have a campfire permit.  If you attended the spring rendezvous that permit is still valid.  If you do not have a permit you must get one online.  There is a short video to watch, a short test to take and then you print your permit.

2). You must have a shovel and bucket of water at your campsite.  There are large water barrels throughout our site that you can get water from. 

3). When putting out a campfire you must use enough buckets of water so that it is cool to the touch.  He suggested a couple buckets at least.

4). Be responsible.  We are fortunate to have this beautiful land for our rendezvous lets keep it that way.
