Rendezvous at Central Whidbey Sportsmen's Club

The seventh annual Mountain man Rendezvous on the Plains of Coupeville will be Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 15 and 16, at the Central Whidbey Sporstmen's Club off Highway 20 across from Morris Road, approximately 2.5 miles south of Coupeville.

The annual event brings together mountain men and women, along with fur trappers, traders and buckskinners from around the Pacific Northwest and Canada for a weekend get-together to relive the time when adventurers explored western America and the Rocky Mountains during the mid 1700s to the mid 1800s.

The event will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug 15 and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug. 16.

Traders' tents will be open for business selling all the items needed for outdoor living during this period in American history. In addition, there will be black powder shooting competition with rifles and pistols, along with tomahawk and knife throwing events, primitive archery and children's games.
