As of August 25 we only have 147 days until we once again step back in time at the exciting 2018 Alafia River Rendezvous®!
Being an Alafia Booshway is a huge job, but Ronnie and I have enjoyed every minute. We have had so much fun traveling around Florida, finding new friends, and making plans. The plans are in place, and preparations have started.
Segundo's Chris Beisler and Tim Hull, Governors, Chiefs, Marshalls, and especially the Florida Frontiersmen's Board of Directors have been an asset, and deserve a HUGE thank you. They are all helping us to achieve our goal of bringing back the Spirit of the Alafia and making rendezvous fun and exciting for everyone. Without them our task would not be achievable.
We have added much to the 2018 Alafia line up. We cannot stress enough to PLEASE read your gate book! It is going to be an AWESOME gate book this year. One that we are sure you will enjoy reading, and keeping as a keepsake.

Our 2018 medallions are VERY special! We took much care and, with the help of Sakkwa Council leader Jack Keener, got them just right. There will be instructions for “using them” in each registration packet.
We will have T-Shirts that you can buy directly online from Custom Ink starting September 1st for $20.00 each plus shipping. We will send you another email with directions on how to purchase them as soon as they are available.
There will also be a SPECIAL Alafia commemorative T-shirt, "I survived Alafia 2016." We will also send you a link for this shirt when they become available in September.
Preregistration begins on October 1st, 2017. You can preregister online at floridafrontiersmen.com.
PLEASE Remember that the 2018 Alafia is not Martin Luther King holiday week.
Gate opens Wednesday, January 17, 2018 at 8 am for early arrival. Rendezvous begins at 5 pm on Friday, January 19th and runs through Saturday, January 27th, 2018.
