What Can You Expect At The 29th Annual Rendezvous???

      Throughout the Rendezvous, beginning on Friday, March 18th, there will be Clinicians, Competitions, Seminars, Western Art Show, and lots of vendors to visit.  There will be food vendors where you can pick up some breakfast or lunch, and dinners on Friday and Saturday nights catered by Up Country Catering. 

      After all the excitement of the day on Saturday, you can relax and enjoy Wine, Beer, and Cheese tasting in the afternoon, from 3:00 - 5:00.  At this activity, you'll receive a complementary glass (wine or beer) and share in some great fellowship with other BCHC members from across the State before heading off to dinner.

      BLM will be joining us again this year with their Wild Horse and Burro Adoption.  As always, they will have some great animals in need of good homes.  (If you think you might be interested in adopting, get the requirements ahead of time from the BLM website so you are prepared when you arrive.)

      Are you artistic or crafty?  Do you paint, sew, work with leather or metal?  You can enter your work in our Western Art Show!  We have some very talented members in BCHC. 

      During Rendezvous, dry camping is available on-site at the Calaveras County Fairgrounds, known by most as the "Frogtown Fairgrounds".  If you're not into dry camping, there is an RV Park adjacent to the fairgrounds and hotels/motels in town.  You can also come for just one of the days - but with so much going on, you might have trouble deciding which day!


Dinners:

      The Friday night dinner includes a concert by Belinda Gail. (If you're not familiar with Belinda, check out her website belindagailsings.com).  The no-host bar will open at 5:30 PM and dinner will be served at 6:00. Tickets

      Saturday night dinner will be our annual awards, raffle, and auctions - both silent and live.  All of our BCHC Units, as well as a number of vendors, will be contributing items to the raffle and auctions.  There will be lots of great items to bid on!  The no-host bar will open at 5:30 PM and dinner will be served at 6:00.
