**** Annual Utah State Knife and Hawk Championship - Please see contest information ****

RENDEZVOUS 2018! APRIL 26 through 29!!

 


PLEASE READ:

The reason for this Rendezvous is to recreate a particular time in the history of this country, and keep alive its culture, from clothing to weapons, hunting to food.  Of course, we do understand that not everyone is interested in full reenactment when they come to Rondy.

However,  we would really appreciate it if those who enjoy the experience we provide would seriously consider wearing a capote or frock over their modern clothing, if only to keep the feeling of the Rendezvous “in the period”.  This year we’d like it if period attire would be visible more than modern clothing if you’re in the public view.  Of course, primitive attire is always required in the primitive camps. We would also appreciate seeing everyone in their period attire at our closing council as well.

Thank you for your consideration of these important points.

We will be hosting our 4 DAY SPRING RENDEZVOUS at our Stone Cliff Canyon Camp, April 26th to 29th this year. We encourage you also to attend the San Rafael Fremont Rendezvous the THIRD weekend, Fri, Sat, Sun in May 2018!

Our site of 120 acres at approximately 5000 feet elevation is located at the base of the pristine Pine Valley Mountains in Southern Utah. Our site’s name is Stone Cliff Canyon and is nestled among the piñon pines and juniper/cedar trees; it has a panoramic view of the mountains and easy access to the site from a main highway.

With the weather in Southern Utah perfect for a fantastic spring Rendezvous; we invite everyone to join us. We have warm days and cool to cold nights. Buckskins are worn during the day, with capotes, campfires and lodge stoves a must at night. The backdrop for our Rendezvous includes the beauty of snow on the mountain with the majestic red and purple mountains that surround the site. The Shoot ranges will test even the seasoned shooter, our Primitive Archery and Knife & Hawk events are unsurpassed anywhere in the West. Make our Rendezvous your spring getaway!

Just a mile back down the highway to the south lies Baker Reservoir, which gives our Trapping Party and friends another great outdoor option: FISH! Bring your tackle and eat fish for dinner for a change! The Reservoir has native German Browns as well as Rainbow Trout. There are a small number of Forest Service “tin-tee-pee” sites there as well; these are first come first served.

Period of Dress is Pre-1840 (encouraged but not required in TinTeePee). Site access: located about 1/2 mile off main highway – Utah State Hwy 18 – accessible over a good dirt road. There is a choice of Primitive or Tin-Tee-Pee camp areas; a Horse Camp is also available. It is a dry camp with firewood available; burn barrels or above-ground fires only unless exception approved (Primitive only). Primitive campers: please park and walk through to find your camp area; this will eliminate vehicle congestion in the primitive areas. There is a 1 hour camp unloading time from WEDNESDAY on. If you come early please do not leave your vehicles in the primitive areas after set up. We want to keep a Rendezvous atmosphere at all times.

THIS IS A THURSDAY, FRIDAY, SATURDAY, AND SUNDAY RENDEZVOUS with the following events: Rifle Walk Thru, Pistol Walk Thru, Shotgun Shoot, Smoothbore, Silhouette Shoot, Rabbit Run, Primitive Archery, Knife & Hawk, Atlatl, Lance, Kids Games, Children’s “just for fun” Archery, Children’s “competition” Archery (Children’s long bows only), Candy Cannon, and other events. Seminars from Buckskinners are encouraged and welcomed for Thursday. Please contact Never Home (Teresa Loris- after 2:00 pm at 435-574-0680) before Rondy.

Added in 2012!! Annual Utah State Knife and Hawk Championship! We hope for some great participation and are excited to add this unique competition to our Rendezvous. Competitions start Friday at 9:00 am and you must be pre-registered by Fri 8:45 am. No Exceptions!

  • * PUBLIC WELCOME from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm
  • * PRIZE DISTRIBUTION AT AWARD CEREMONY – Prizes are awarded per event, per division. If you are unable to attend the Sunday Council Awards Ceremony (for whatever reason) and think you may have placed, you can have someone pick up your prizeThey would choose your prize AFTER all the other place winners present at ceremony for that event/division have chosen.
  • * Camp closes to public at 7:00 pm nightly. Pre-1840 Dress is Required in Camp after 7:00 pm for all Rendezvous participants and Guests. If you have guests present after 7:00 please have them in Pre-1840 dress or have them in a capote. Anyone not in Pre-1840 dress after 7:00 pm will be confronted.
  • * Drinking of alcohol by anyone under the age of 21 is strictly prohibited. Violations to this rule will require you to vacate Rendezvous for the rest of the event.

  • o Rifle – 60 Gr Maximum; Pistol – 20 Gr Maximum

  • o PLEASE – NO NEW OR INEXPERIENCED shooters allowed on shooting line – Please take new shooters out before Rendezvous so they are very familiar with their weapons, safety guidelines etc. Bringing someone to Rendezvous that has never shot before or shot with a group severely compromises the SAFETY and Rendezvous Experience for all other shooters.
  • o No one without a Rendezvous participation # is allowed to shoot on the ranges. (Public or Inexperienced Shooters) Again it is a safety and insurance issue.
  • o Please make sure your weapons are clean, oiled and in working order before you go thru any of the shoots. We all have problems at times with our weapons and the Range Officer will gladly help you out but this would cut down on most of the issues.

Please bring Your Own burn barrel (Metal Container). Primitive Camps must use burn barrels also but may have fire pits, if approved by Booshway, to meet the period correctness of your camp.
