American Adventurist is proud to announce the 9th Annual SoCal Desert Rendezvous

F1D530C9-442C-4A66-995F-C4A693071914.jpeg

DATE: Desert Rendezvous is scheduled for February 21-24 2019.

LOCATION: New location, coordinates will be posted here prior to the event. For those who were around in the beginning, we're going old school Rendezvous this year!

Due to the government shutdown's affects on the BLM, there will be no cleanup this year. Instead, we will be raising money for the California Off Road Vehicle Association!

There will be a POTLUCK / CAMP COOKING COMPETITION again this year! Check back here for separate thread on that soon.

Before you go, we highly recommend that you complete the "Tread Lightly 101" Online Awareness Course HERE

PLEASE do not abandon your trash bag/s in camp for "someone else" to remove, please help us on these important logistics and pack out more than you pack in. There are no dumpsters, water or other facilities at Desert Rendezvous, self sufficiency is up to you!

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

HOW TO REGISTER:

1. There is a non-refundable $20 RSVP fee for each vehicle for the weekend. You must be a registered member here on this forum and agree to our terms of service to be RSVP’d.

2. Online payment link is at the bottom of this forum page, scroll down and you will see the DONATE button.

3. Once you do that, say hi and POST in this thread that you have RSVP'd!

4. Once you arrive, there will be a cash donation of $40. All proceeds cover operating costs for this event and we will be making a donation to CORVA this year!

5. American Adventurist also requires a signed hold-harmless agreement from each vehicle when you arrive (print and sign and bring with you).

HOLD HARMLESS PDF ATTACHED TO THIS POST - SCROLL DOWN

That's it!

See the 2nd post in this thread below for the Master RSVP List.

*Limited edition commemorative Rendezvous morale patches and decals will be handed out during check-in. Only RSVP's will receive this. Quantities are limited.

*Get shirts and other American Adventurist swag online before the event HERE

*AGAIN, ONE RSVP/vehicle per member. Groups must register and RSVP individually.

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

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.
8. DOGS MUST BE LEASHED - NO DOG FIGHT DRAMA!


- 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 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 Staff Member Extraordinaire @sfsmedic via PM... thanks.
