    I'm looking forward to another great Rendezvous in Apache Junction .
    This one is going to be even better than last year. Plans are being made so mark your calendars for March 27,28, and 29 .
    We will soon be sending out registration forms, so get yours in early.
    Early registration gets you a free T-shirt and saves you $10.
    The cut off date for early registration this year is Feb. 28 2015
    In keeping with going rates and trying to keep AZIHR financially solvent (so we can keep doing this) we are increasing the registration fees to $50 for early reg. and $60 after the cut off date.
    Thank you to all club members who were able to attend the meeting last night and your help in planning AZIHR 15
    We had a very productive meeting . Thank You :)

    North of Queen Vally up Elephant Butte Rd is a nice trail that the club has never run ,
    I'd rate it about a 3 .
    In and out the same not a loop , it ends at Superstition Wilderness boundary .

    The other is Hardt Tank Rd .
    I never ran this one all the way thru but know Jayson from Canyon has .

    These would be something different and don't require a pass like Bull Dog .

    OH ! and there's no water if you roll :drown:

    KC, that would be a great area for our AZ rendezvous trail run, I know the area very well, the elephant butte trail can be made a loop if you run the wash back to queen valley.

    Greetings SDS Officers,

    This is just a friendly reminder to consider posting something about the Rendezvous on Craigslist. Recommend something be posted under; International, Scout, IH, International Harvester, etc. I understand there was good responses and feedback regarding craigslist last year. A focus on Rural Arizona, SoCal, Northern Calif, NM, Utah, Colorado, West Texas are a few areas where an add could be placed as well. The parts section as well. Again, just a suggestion.

    Thank you.:taz:

    At this point 99% chance I'm going. Bringing the family with me as well as my parents. Hoping I can get Isa to go as he's beyond busy getting moved. For those who aren't camping which hotel do most stay at?

    Is the only method for pre-registration to download the form and print it and mail it? I was hoping for a pay online option, I do have a paypal account.

    The online rendezvous registration is available!

    Note that you do not need a paypal account to checkout, just a debit or credit card.

    Online dues payment is now available as well.

    Bummer I had to print the form and mail in a money order since the online option wasnt available. I'm just curious as to why the preregistration period was 01-01-2015 to 02-28-2015 but the online payment option just became available late in the day on 02-22-2015?? I think that having the online option available as soon as the pre-registration period is announced would be helpful to the club to generate more revenue from registrations. Also, it would help any newcomers to the club and/or rendezvous show as it is much more convenient to do everything from a phone or pc. Anyways I hope the show is fun like it has been in past years. Im yet to be challenged by anyone with an uglier scout. I have added many dents and paint scratches so its even more ugly than before!

    I just want to remind everyone that there will probably be an abundance of sunshine at Rendezvous. BRING SHADE! If you have an easy-up BRING IT!
    Beach umbrella, Palm tree, Sombrero, sun screen etc.
