Rendezvous

A summer competition and member meeting. 2019 will be located in North West Wisconsin. Dates to be determined.

 

Hey Fellow Members,

Wasn't that a dragged out winter / spring combination? The spring turkey hunt was about two weeks behind and opening day of fishing found anglers looking for soft water rather than the hard variety. Here we are now full swing into summer and I dare to say it's almost too hot. It's going to be a fast summer, I feel like we've lost a month which in turn means the August Rendezvous will be right around the corner.

Be sure to book your rooms early for the Rendezvous, the Insight has hotel and booking information. Rooms will fill up fast with vacationers. This year's schedule is a little different from past Rendezvous', we are trying to streamline it to get everything accomplished by the end of Saturday, that means Sunday you are free to leave or go sightseeing.

If you never attended the Rendezvous, I encourage you to come on out. The mini competition is open to all animals, bring a display piece from your shop, get a critique and who knows you might get a ribbon. It's a very laid-back and casual competition if you're just starting out, this is a good one to get into. After all, we are all here to learn.

Start the weekend with some sporting clays or trap shooting or catch a mid-morning seminar. Also, you can take a ride downtown to see the museum and the farmers market — always something going on in Door County. New this year, 3-D archery targets will be set up for you archery enthusiasts. To cap it all off, Saturday night we will be having a good old fashion pig roast with all the trimmings. So make plans to attend the Rendezvous, August 10th and 11th at the Door County Rod and Gun Club in Sturgeon Bay.

Don't forget to book your rooms for the Wisconsin State Taxidermy Championships on February 22nd through 25th in Stevens Point, Room Block Code is WIT. That's it for now hope to see you all in August, remember take a kid fishing.
