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!

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

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!

-Per the BLM, YOU must have a method of absorbing and capturing spilled fuel and fluids under each vehicle during fueling, repairs, and maintenance operations. All fuel cans, if on the ground, must also be stored on this surface.

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 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 @Brett C via PM... thanks.
