2018 CTAGA Spring Rendezvous
Join us at the Annual CTAGA Spring Rendezvous on March 16–18, 2018 at the CTAGA Shooting Range in Benton, Kansas. The CTAGA Spring Rendezvous is a festive, three-day gathering of buckskinners and other muzzle-loading enthusiasts, and their families, this event draws participants from far and near to enter shooting contests, to camp, to trade, and to enjoy the good fellowship that typify the rendezvous. The rendezvous is held at a splendid, forested site along the Arkansas River near Oxford, Kansas. The CTAGA Spring Rendezvous is a family affair, and it is customary for participants to dress in period clothing. Many also camp in the primitive style of the period.
Each fall since 1976, the Chisholm Trail Antique Gun Association has also hosted the state’s largest rendezvous, a three-day gathering of muzzle-loading enthusiasts to commemorate an 1830’s fur-trade rendezvous on the third weekend in October.
