Camp du Bois June Rendezvous
Since the Fort de Chartres June Rendezvous has been postponed until September, I'm hosting a Pre 1840 Rendezvous at Camp du Bois in Wood River, IL. Setup will begin Saturday, May 29 at 8 am and participants are welcome to camp throughout the week, culminating in an event that will be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday, June 5th and 6th.
I hope to have a food court, sutler's row, shooting competition, opening and closing colors ceremony with a fife and drum corps, performances throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday, a Saturday evening dance with a band and caller, portapotties in addition to the permanent bathroom/shower facilities that are present, and plenty of firewood.
The camp fee will be $20.00 per tent or $40.00 per sutler tent, but this will not even begin to cover the cost of the event. I intend to donate additional funds to make this happen and I hope some of you might help as well, whether or not you come to the event.
Let me know if you would like to help out with this event. I'm sure we can find something for you to do.

Thanks for your consideration, and I hope to see you at Camp du Bois.
