Here are the details on the upcoming Fritztown Freetrappers Rendezvous near Huntsville, TX
DATE: Friday, March 9th to Sunday, March 11th. Early set-up on Thursday beginning at 1:30 p.m.
LOCATION: 322 Walker Loop, Huntsville, TX.
From Austin, San Antonio, or any place west, your best bet is to get to Navasota, go east on Hwy 90 to Anderson. Make a RIGHT onto FM 149 and stay on this. After you go through Richards, you will see a large sign saying you are “entering Sam Houston National Forest” (you are still on 149). Go 2.3 miles from this sign and you will come to a crossroad. To the left takes you to Huntsville (FM 1791). To the right takes you to our house. Make a LEFT onto FM 1791. You will go about 9.5 miles and make a RIGHT onto Walker Loop. Remember this mileage because you want to pass up the first Walker Loop road. There will be a FFT sign where you turn. Once you are on Walker Loop, go about 2 miles and the road will be on your right. It is across from a cemetery and there will be another sign.
From Houston or Dallas – take I-45 to Huntsville, go west on State Highway 30, LEFT onto FM 1791. Sorry, I don’t have mileage from SH 30, but it’s about the same as from FM 149. Look for the FFT sign and make a LEFT onto Walker Loop. See directions above.

COUNCIL FIRE: We told Char Cloth and Herb (our cooks) that they would not have to cook, if they would just attend so that means the rest of us have to come up with food for our Council Fire dinner.
