Black Rock Rendezvous May 27-30th 2016

Post by Just_Joe » Sat Mar 26, 2016 11:19 am

The 2016 Black Rock Rendezvous is FREE and NOT SOLD OUT!
It's going to be another great time. We have plenty of activities planned and 1.2 million acres to play on.

As always, the family friendly LNT event will be held on Memorial Day weekend (May 27 to 30th).
Rendezvous is typically attended by several hundred people and is a great way to learn about and give something back to the Black Rock Desert.
We had a handful of ePlayans join us last year. Represent!!

Shoot me a PM or reply here if you have any questions.

From the Friends of Black Rock Executive Director:
We have already begun planning for this year's Black Rock Rendezvous, and you will not want to miss it. If you haven't already, mark your calendar for Memorial Day weekend on the playa in the Black Rock Desert. As always, this is a partner event with Friends of Nevada Wilderness, the BLM, and Nevada Outdoor School.
There will be educational presentations, tours of the area, stewardship projects, a dutch oven cook-off, a raffle, and a Kids Camp run by Nevada Outdoor School. This year's line up of events and activities has something for everyone.
As usual, we will provide a kitchen area with communal shade, a first aid tent, and port-a-potties. Other than that, bring what you need to be comfortable camping. And, of course, this is a Leave No Trace event.
We are still in the process of finalizing the exact activities for this year. But, we will have our website updated with 2016 information soon.
We know we're always itching to get out into the Black Rock, and we bet you are too! To assist with our planning, please RSVP for this event.
For more information, to volunteer, or to RSVP, contact Michael at m.myers@blackrockdesert.org or call 775.557.2900.

The original link in the OP has been updated and there is now a FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE.
In addition to the scheduled events, I'll be leading the unofficial tours to Trego Hot Springs each night after dark (or at least pointing you in the right direction).

Great to hear!
Between us, you, fernley1, Killbuck and Nila, we'll have enough for a mini ePlaya Meet and Greet.
I know there's a couple of fence sitters. C'mon y'all...DO IT

It looks like the weather is going to cooperate. After a chance of rain today, we're looking at sunny and warm for the weekend.

I'm attempting to ramp up my efforts in order to arrive sometime Saturday. I'm hoping for a weird one...fingers crossed.

There will be weirdos, right? I can't be the only one...
Sooner or later, it will get real strange...

I thought he was supposed to be the level-headed one, the voice of reason if you will...

He's responsible and whatnot.

Yeah, I'm packing! Which really means I am at the computer, looking at items related to music... thinking about what batteries to charge, and generally pissing away the day. But I gots gear by the door to put in the car.
