From Iron Burner:

Because three of our event leaders (workers) cannot be at the Texas Free Trappers Rendezvous this weekend because of urgent family emergencies, and with the hope for better weather, the rendezvous has been rescheduled for February 15 – 18, 2018.
We hope this change does not prevent you from attending.

Update on TFT Rendezvous – Feb 9-11, 2018

From Jack Simons:

Christmas is around the corner and the smell of burnt  powder is in the air (well at least for us)!  The next Texas Free Trappers Rendezvous is set for February 9-11, 2018

in Shiner, Texas.  Please get the word out.  If you know any folks that don’t use email, let me know their name and mailing address.  I’m going to put the word out to the Lavaca and Gonzales Counties’ 4H groups to see if they’d like to come by and see what we are all about.

Here’s wishing you and your families a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

More details and an event flier are available on the Events Page!

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.

Winter/Spring 2014 Events Update

Just updated the Events Page with some new events this winter:

Texas Association of Buckskinners will be having their Deep Winter rendezvous on a new place near Cameron, TX .    Big John is the booshway for this event, so you know it’ll be a good one.

Grey Wolf has put out the word that Texas Free Trappers will be hosting their 20th rendezvous out at the Shiner, TX site.   He’ll be having a work day for the site on Feb 1st.

It’s still a ways off, but The Fritztown Freetrappers spring rendezvous will be taking place at the 2nd Annual Living History Timeline event, just outside of San Antonio, TX.   Keep an eye out for details, as that should be a pretty awesome event.

Don’t forget about Southwest Regional Rendezvous – which will be hosted near Lampasas, TX.   It’s been a long time since it’s been in central Texas, so if you are in the area – don’t miss it!

Hope to see you down the trail!

Flier and details added for TFT Rendezvous XVII

Joe Wolf just sent out the flier, activities schedule and a map for his TFT Rendezvous XVII. It will be taking place November 8-11 near Shiner, TX.

For those who have never attended a TFT voo, Joe’s events are usually heavily focused on shooting – so if you are looking for a nice place to camp with plenty of opportunity to burn some powder, this will be a great event!

Get outside and enjoy the fall weather at a rendezvous near you.

More details are available on the events page.
