May Update!

Here are some last minute updates.  After rereading the game laws there will be a Fishing Derby for those interested. You can buy a local fishing license (if you don’t already have one) from a couple of places in Paisley. Remember primitive fishing equipment is required! Check out the link for State regulations, and where to buy…. http://www.dfw.state.or.us/resources/licenses_regs/sport_fishing.asp
I have also just been informed that they are planning a cannon shoot for all you Cannoneers.  So bring your cannons!
Things are coming together quickly now, looking forward to seeing you all soon!

This year’s Rendezvous is on the Chewaucan River 12 miles outside of Paisley Oregon. There is lots of room for camping, with the Chewaucan River running right alongside!

Plenty of water and space. We are expecting a large turnout with lots of activities and traders.  We will have seminars, shooting events, Archery, Hawk & Knife,Horse Camp, and Traders Row. A primitive fishing contest and a cribbage tournament add to the fun. Plus old and new friends for the making…

Our love of History in particular, the Mountain Man era is what brings us all together. We all work hard to maintain a Pre 1840 lifestyle and “look”. We expect all to help maintain our “ambiance”.

We will introduce our Chiefs below, if you have questions, or would like to help in their areas, please contact them directly. We all love to talk and visit, so give us a call! Check out the Flier for dates, and special stuff.

Remember the rendezvous begins on the 20th, and ends on the 27th am. Period attire is required. This is not a “beginner” rendezvous, you all know what is required, please help to maintain it.  Pre-registration helps us to prepare for all who are coming. Click to the Registration form, fill it out, and get it sent in…

See you on the Chewaucan!!
