From Jack Simons . . .
On behalf of our Booshway Matò, just a reminder that the Fritztown Free Trappers March Rendezvous begins three days from now. Although the forecast calls for rain, we are praying and hoping it will go around. Watch your emails closely as we will send out an email about the status of the Nagelmueller Ranch. While we’d muscle through it if it rained, we also don’t want to tear up the property as it is still a working ranch and running cattle.
More details are on the Events page
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 firstname.lastname@example.org

The Fritztown Freetrappers always put on a great event, so take advantage of the improving weather and go join them!
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
