2016 12th Annual Rondezvous Report

Recommended Posts

Saturday night we had our Annual Community Cook Out! We fire up the big grill and you may grill whatever kind of meat you wish. We have had beef, pork, chicken, rattlesnake, elk, deer venison, axis venison, buffalo, sand hill crane, assorted exotic sauges, and more! Everyone is invited! As the meat is cooked, everyone just nibbles on whatever they want. If you didn't bring anything to grill, no problem!! There is always more than enough to go around!!!

 

This years Community Grill!!

Finally, we had a bit of excitement at the start of the weekend. Captkb and Parker found an occupant already in their cabin, a rattlesnake. Fortunately, they both catch rattlesnakes and had a snake stick in the truck. After dispatching the snake, they cleared all the rest of the cabins so there would be no more surprises. No more were found..............

Billie and I as usual had a wonderful time . It has become one of the things we look forward too each year . It gives us the opportunity to get with old friends , make some new ones and take part in some awesome camaraderie . In every aspect of the Rondy , from the start on Friday to the shutting it all down on Sunday , it is time well spent . It is all fun , but I like the Saturday evening gathering at the big grill and food flowing in from all directions , to be cooked and sampled by any who wants it and stories being told . Then on to the fire at cabin #1 with Engine4on and Woody as host , always lots of stories being told and I bet some of them are even true . God willing and the creek don't rise , we see you next year . Thanks to all the door prize sponsors and to Burnham Brothers and Coyote Armory for the great lunch on Saturday .

Looks like a great time. I changed my mind at the last minute due to the forecast of rain and cold. Cold I can deal with but camping in the rain is not on my list anymore, just too old. Glad the rain held off, I should have went. Next year!
