TIMELINE OF EVENTS:




**************************************************
Trail Run - Diablo Drop Off / Fish Creek
**************************************************


PLEASE do not abandon your trash bag/s in camp for "someone else" to remove, please help us on this important logistical portion of the cleanup and pack out more than you pack in. The BLM is providing a dumpster for us to fill, but we still need to be 100% self sufficient and Tread Lightly!

EIGHT YEARS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE CLEANING UP TRAILS ON PUBLIC LANDS IN CALIFORNIA!

Comm Plan:

Ham: 146.520 simplex calling
147.585 simplex for chit chat


CB: Ch 38 for calling

FRS for short range Ch 3 tone 8

:campfire:

The Vision:

1. Come as you are!
2. Laid Back: No hard schedule other than the date.
3. Mountain Man Rendezvous and Adventurist Meet and Greet.
4. Swap Meet: Bring things to trade or sell or barter (this is NOT a commercial event!).
5. Meet People: Network, maybe teach each other a few things and check out cool rigs.
6. Real Bonfire Chat: With a real fire. Share food and beverages of your choice.
7. Desert Rendezvous Cleanup: We aim to pack out more than we pack in and Tread Lightly!


The Ground Rules:

1. Common Sense.
2. Respect for Others.
3. Self Sufficiency.
4. Tread Lightly.
5. Leave it better than the way we found it!
6. Speed limit in camp is 5 mph, strictly enforced for safety (kids, dogs). Make no dust.
7. Quiet time in camp is midnight.


- The intent is to be inclusive and promote max participation - this means family friendly, dog friendly (kids supervised/dogs leashed/common sense).

- Please note that all trash collected during the Cleanup is the responsibility of the individual to remove; this is not a commercial event so dumpsters will NOT be provided. All trash collected must be packed out by the individual attendees and the area left spotless!

- Please note that there will be no potable water and no restrooms i.e. porta johns in the Desert. Bring your own!

DISCLAIMER:
A. COME PREPARED - SELF SUFFICIENCY (VEHICLE AND SELF) AND THE CAPABILITY TO TREAD LIGHTLY WILL BE THE ONLY REQUIREMENTS TO ATTEND.
B. YOU ASSUME ALL LIABILITY FOR YOURSELF. PLAY AT YOUR OWN RISK ON PUBLIC LANDS.
C. WE REPRESENT THIS COMMUNITY AND WILL ADHERE TO OUR COMMUNITY STANDARDS OF CONDUCT.
D. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE FUN OR ELSE!


************************************************** **************************************************

A NOTE ABOUT VENDORS:

While this is not a commercial event, in keeping with the tradition which began at the first SoCal Desert Rendezvous back in 2011, vendors are encouraged to attend and if they happen to sell a few things to friends out of the back of their rig that's their beeswax. Just no tables, Ezy-ups etc. Again, this is not a commercial event this is just for fun.


Vendors in attendance are however expected to support the raffle.

Vendors are people too and I know they look forward to events where they can unwind and just be themselves vice SEMA, Overland Expo, Outdoor Retailer etc. That's what the Rendezvous events are all about so if you work in this industry, but don't want to work, come on out!

If you are a vendor and are interested in getting in on sponsorship or the raffle please contact @sfsmedic via PM... thanks.
