Welcome to Shirt Tail Creek, Seneca, Oregon 2013

This is a pre 1840 primitive rendezvous. Anything non-primitive needs to be under cover in your tent or lodge. Primitive footwear is required at all times when you are on the trails or on Traders Row. If your feet hurt and you need to wear non-primitive foot wear stay in your camp and relax. Loud and non-primitive print shirts should be left at home as you will be asked to take them off. NO CELL PHONES out in public. If you must use one go to the parking lot or out of camp where you can't be seen. You are expected to arrive and leave in Primitive Attire and stay in period correct attire while in camp. These simple rules will be enforced so help us make this a great primitive event.

Thank You for coming and have a great time.

Dogs

If you are planning on bring your dog to the Rendezvous, consider: Is it really a Rendezvous Dog? Does it get along well with others, human or canine? It Will be on a leash (10 feet max) attached to a human or tied to something solid in your camp. Remember any waste or droppings your dog produces you must clean up. Don’t let your dog ruin someone else’s Rendezvous experience.

Directions

The Rendezvous site is located outside of Seneca, Oregon off of Hwy 395 between John Day, Oregon, and Burns, Oregon. Signs will be posted from the town of Seneca to the Rendezvous near Shirt Tail Creek.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
