Sierra Muzzle Loaders holds two rendezvous a year at the Sierra Muzzle Loaders Club Site. There are three areas designated for camping: Primitive area (all visable equipment pre-1840), Open Camping area (a mix of primitive and modern camping equipment) and Tin Tipi (RVs and trailers). There is also an area set aside for Traders’ Row (for rendezvous).
You’ll find several ranges to test your skills including hawk and knife, archery, rifle, pistol, trade gun, trade pistol and usually a number of specialty shoots.
The Soper-Wheeler Timber Company offered the club a lease on 700 acres of land just up New York Flat Road from the previous site. This is a beautiful area in every way and the club feels they have finally come home. The site is perfect for all of the events and programs the club does and hosts. It is still a working tree farm on which Soper-Wheeler practices sustainable forestry. Club members work hard to be good stewards of the area and recognize how fortunate we are to have found such a beautiful home for our Sierra Muzzle Loaders Club Site.
