TFT Rendezvous XXIII

From Joe Wolf –

Texas Free Trappers Rendezvous XXIII (yep, it’s our 23rd one) is on the horizon.

Do a no-rain dance!  The dirt road to the campsites gets muddy and could be a problem.

Be ready for a Round Robin trading session.

Consider having some two-bit shooting matches Sunday morning with 25 cent entries and winner takes all for each match.

I don’t like to get up and start packing up.

I’d rather get home at dark than leave rendezvous behind….and unpack the truck on Monday. It’s already trashed by having to go back to the grind.

Bring a smoothbore if’n ya have one.

Be ready for the best shooting walks around, rifle, pistol and smoothbore.

Details, including a flier, activity schedule and map are posted to the Events page.

Burn Ban Update on TAB Fall Rendezvous – 2015

From Big John Donahoo:

I have spoken to the Leon County Judge’s Office today in reference to the burn ban variance I requested for the Club on Tuesday. The Leon County Judge has denied our request for a variance on the burn ban. There will be NO FIRES at TAB Fall Rendezvous next weekend. This includes metal fire pits & braziers. Please come prepared with either propane or alternative fuel stoves/cookers.

The 10-day forecast does call for rain next Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday, but the County Judge’s Office says it is highly unlikely the Judge will issue any burn ban variances unless a majority of Leon County receives substantial rainfall. I will monitor the area weather and request the variance again if that rain does occur, but at this point it will have to be a “cold camp”.

For the Board of Directors,

John Donahoo
TAB President 2014-2016

Hello my name is Patrick and I live in San Angelo. The rifle is Italian made and was purchased at Cabelas a few years ago. I’m selling the rifle due the fact that I don’t have the time nor the place to fire the rifle on a regular basis.
