Update: Texas Free Trappers Rendezvous XXV (Nov 11-13, 2016)

From Joe Wolf –

Ho buckskinners………sorry to be so late with the flyer and schedule.
I hope the fact that our rendezvous schedules are pretty well known.
We had some pilgrims at the Fritztown Rendezvous that we hope will come to Texas Free Trappers Rendezvous XXV.
I’m hoping to get a Knife & Hawk Walk ready in time to be used. I’m trying to get a course set up with 6 hawk blocks. Pacing distances to targets will not be allowed. The course would be done twice, with a break between them.
Be ready for a Round Robin. Some priceless objects are probably hidden in your wood and brick tipis.
Keep an eye on the horizon…..

Update: Fritztown Annual Fall Rendezvous – October 14-16

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 chuck.morison@yahoo.com

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!

Interested in my property being used for a 2017 Rendezvous

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.
