National FCF Rendezvous
July 14-18, 2014 - Eagle Rock, MO
The National Rendezvous is a special event of the Frontiersman Camping Fellowship (FCF) group within Royal Rangers that occurs once every four years. This national event draws together men and boys from all across the country for a time of fun and fellowship in a frontier setting.
The 2014 National FCF Rendezvous will be the most exciting and colorful FCF event ever. You won’t want to miss this special brand of fellowship, camaraderie, and competition with your FCF brethren from across the country. You’ll have the opportunity to hear some great speakers and to join in an amazing time of worship!
The theme for rendezvous will be "The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness…” Psalm 29:8.

Events & Activities
From its beginning, the Frontiersmen Camping Fellowship has featured skilled craftsmen. Rendezvous will showcase these talented members. From clothing to tools to possible pouches to powder horns, members can submit handcrafted items in six categories. The top three entries for both Old Timers and Young Bucks in each category will earn a winner’s ribbon. The top three overall entries will be recognized as “Best in Show.” Get busy on your entries today!
Hawk & Knife
The Hawk & Knife venue will be a buzz of activity throughout the event. There will be two 15-station event trails to test your expertise and ten targets set up for “handles.”
All the black powder shooting events will test your ability to shoot fast and straight. Expect some new twists on old shooting standards with some fantastic prizes for the top shots.
Frontier Games & Trades
Participate in games and activities that were present on the American Frontier. Learn how to hammer forge a nail or tan a beaver hide. Relax with a game of corncob darts or Indian stick ball.
Check out a variety of frontier wares from our vendors. Pick up a calico shirt or a new tomahawk handle.
Recognition will be given to the top chapter and the top territory at Rendezvous, based on enthusiasm and high levels of participation. The “Strong Heart” award, named for our founder, Johnnie Barnes, will be given to the top performing Young Buck and Old Timer at Rendezvous.
