History of the Frozen Butt Rendezvous
When the Kaw Valley Muzzleloaders initially organized they held several rendezvous type shoots. The event that seemed to attract the most interest was the winter shoot held in February. The first few shoots in February were just called a winter rendezvous. It soon became apparent that while the participants were enjoying themselves they were also freezing their backsides off. Thus the name Frozen Butt Rendezvous naturally evolved.

Mark your calendar today so you don’t miss the next Frozen Butt Rendezvous in February at Corndodger Station near Frankfort, Kansas.
