Monthly club meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month at Denny's restaurant at East McCarran and I-80 off Nugget Blvd. in Sparks. Meetings are held in the back meeting room and begin at 7:00PM. These meetings are casual and non-committal and we welcome all to stop in and see what we are all about. Families and youngsters are welcome.
We are privileged to shoot at a private facility located in the beautiful Sierra Valley about 30 miles from Reno. We have an established trail shoot comprised of metallic targets set at various distances: one for rifle and a separate one for pistol. In addition to the shoot course, there is room for hawk & knife and primitive bow & arrow. Monthly shoots are held the 3rd Sunday of each month. Typically, summer and spring shoots start around 9am and fall and winter shoots start around 10:30am, weather permitting. Start times are usually at the discretion of the "booshway" (shoot event supervisor). Afterwards, points are compiled and the shooter's scores are announced, bragging rights to follow.
The club holds 3 weekend rendezvous each year. One in the spring & one in the fall (dates pending) and one held during Memorial Day weekend.
A modern rendezvous is a historical reenactment of the Mountain Men gathering during the fur-trade era of the American West. A historical period camp that recreates the sights, sounds, smells and feelings of the past. Participants set up teepees, canvas wall tents and lean-tos. Buckskins or various other period clothing is worn to further give the feeling and experience of recreating the fur trade era. Modern conveniences such as coolers, lights and stoves are carefully concealed to add to the realism. While we encourage primitive attire and camping at the rendezvous, we do not require it. Many bring their trailers, motor homes and modern nylon tents. The primitive folks camp separately but the key word is FUN and FRIENDSHIP so both camps intermingle and socialize - nothing too formal. Shooting events, knife and tomahawk throwing, raffles, awards and breakfast are some of the activities during the rendezvous.
