Our rendezvous is being held in celebration of the original Rocky Mountain rendezvous that were attended by Mountaineers, Native Americans, and Traders during the 1800’s. At the rendezvous, the Mountaineers sold and traded their furs and re-supplied before going back into the wilderness for the next trapping season.
Celebration, revelry, competition, and story-telling were all part of the rendezvous. We invite your Troops to join us at the rendezvous and participate in the following activities:
