More of the 'voo

here's 2 photos of Gary doing his smithy work...he's making a stand for holding a muzzleloader in camp.

That's Clair weaving a shawl on a triangle loom, and Torie weaving a basket. There is so much to see and do and learn at a rendezvous. While we girls were visiting under the canvas fly, the kids games were going on in the grass near us. Down at the range, shooting competition is going on, and a few adults were supervising the kids at the knife and hawk range. Clair's boy Sam gave Randy, a seasoned buckskinner, a run for his money at the hawk throw. You go, Sam! That's Randy above with the long beard and the hat, just before Sam gave him what for :-)

Which rendezvous was this? Which one are you headed to on the east coast? Could it be Falling Leaves? I know its going on this week. I went there in 2007. Its a fun one. Small, but that's the way I like it.
