We’ve spent the past few months learning the history of the Alafia River Rendezvous; who the past Booshways were, looking at old medallions and old themes. The traditions are amazing and so broad: Shooting, Camping, Singing, and Teaching just to name a few. Everyone seems to have their own personal favorite.
Rick’s favorite is doing the medical history demonstrations and he is starting to aquire a large collection of period medical instruments. Helen’s is hanging out with friends and sharing meals. Ten years ago cooking in a Dutch oven was something only heard of, now it’s a natural part of meal making. We both also love the research that goes into making everything as correct as possible. The more we learn, the better our Rendezvous experience becomes.
This coming Rendezvous we hope that everyone’s experience is everything it can be: please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions as to what is and what isn’t period correct.
Rick and Helen
