Update from Jack:
Fall is officially here, but the hot temperatures are trying to hold on. Sure is, however, great to wake up to the cool mornings and that makes me think of Rendezvous Time!
The Fritztown (FFT) Annual Fall Rendezvous is a little over a little over a week away. I have updated information concerning the memorial to Gene and Kathleen Nagelmueller. It will begin at 4:00 p.m. that Saturday at an old tree Gene used to deer hunt at. All FFT events will end before 4:00 and give everyone plenty of time to make it across the ranch. After the memorial, dinner is being provided by the Nagelmueller Family so there is no need to bring a potluck meal for Saturday night. Thank you Shirley, Heath and the rest of the Family.
Also, we are not doing a prize blanket as I stated earlier in the flier (enclosed has not been modified), but will instead handout cash prizes for the winners of each FFT event.
A special thanks goes out to Heath and Layton Nagelmueller, Glenn Darilek, Rusty Hathaway, Craig Segner, Bruce Shulter and David Williams for all their help at last Saturday’s work day in getting the site ready. It looks awesome!
To promote our friends at the Comanche Peak Muzzleloaders, they are having a rendezvous this weekend, October 6-9, 2016 in Palestine, Texas. Contact Chuck Morrison (Iron Horse) at email@example.com
(254) 392-3546 or Mike Roberts (Teeny) at firstname.lastname@example.org (817) 487-6853. Flier can be found in events section of www.buckskinning.org
Have a great week and see you October 14-16!

The Fritztown Freetrappers always put on a great event, so take advantage of the improving weather and go join them!
From Richard Meador:
Just had a grinding machine clear about two new acres leaving only the trees. This probably triples my campsite capacity. It butts up against the pond. Would like to find someone that would like to have their rendezvous here in 2017 anytime from closing day of deer season to the first weeks of Sept. This offer is open to “all” clubs or groups including TAB. I’m stocking the pond for a fishing contest.
Property is located in Texas, between Normangee and Centerville.
Richard can be reached at email@example.com
With the Fritztown Rendezvous a little over a month away, we are asking for volunteers to help clean up the site at the Nagelmueller Ranch. If you can make it, the Fritztown Rendezvous
Work Day is Saturday, October 1, at 9:00 a.m. It could still be hot, so we are getting an early start.
We’ll be cutting back brush, providing a little maintenance to the hooter (aka outhouse), touch up archery targets and blocks, if necessary and a variety of other things. Be sure to bring gloves and plenty of water. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email me or call 210-846-6375.
Your booshway, Jack Simons

Update from the Booshway about the Fritztown Freetrappers Spring rendezvous:
The Fritztown Free Trappers Rendezvous has been CANCELED due to the rain again. We are not rescheduling because of all the other activities this month and into April.
New events have been posted for Texas Association of Buckskinners, Texas Free Trappers, and a brand new location for Comanche Peak Muzzleloaders.
Check out the Events page for more details!
From Grey Wolf –
Pilgrims Rendezvous scheduled for this weekend has been cancelled due to the dire prediction of thunderstorms in the area. Keep Texas Free Trappers Rendezvous XXIII in mind for November 13-15 at the same site near Shiner, Texas
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,
TAB President 2014-2016
