The Ochlockonee River Rendezvous:
The Jefferson Longrifles hold The Ochlockonee River Rendezvous once a year at Grey Fox Farm in Tallahassee. Here the club gathers, along with special guests and friends, for a week of primitive camping and activities. This festive event includes a variety of competitive games and challenges, such as archery and black powder woods walks, hawk and knife throwing competitions, women's games of skill and children's games. The final evening of the 'vous culminates in a splendid camp feed for rendezvous participants, with a main course being a whole pig cooked on site in a huge pit full of coals by Jackie Shaffer. The evenings meal ends with a raffle drawing for many wonderful prizes which are made or donated by club members, including a black powder rifle.
Many thanks go out to William and Kathryn Wilson for their support, as well as allowing the use of their land for the 'vous and other club related activities.
We hosted the 95, 98 and the 2005 Southeastern held at Dixie Plantation...
