Plainsman Black Powder Club
The Plainsmen Black Powder Club started in 1972 with a small group of men who had a passion for muzzle-loading guns and the ways of the past. We try to portray the ways of the mountain men. Some call it “living history”. Today, the club is more family-oriented by dressing the parts of the past at rendezvous throughout the US. We dress anywhere from the 1750s to 1840s. At rendezvous we have shooting competitions, trail walks, tomahawk and knife throws, women’s and children’s games. We can also be found just sitting and enjoying the peace and quiet.
The annual Plainsmen Black Powder Rendezvous is held (beginning) the 3rd Friday each May, outside Kindred, North Dakota.
