Title: Winter Rendezvous - Fort de Chartres, IL

Winter Rendezvous
Nov 3 - 4, 2007
A typical Rendezvous featuring camplife, traders, and a woodswalk team shooting contest. It was here at Fort de Chartres that this popular shooting event was first held.

Sorry, the site doesn't have much more information. 

However, I did attend this event several years ago.  It seemed to be more for reenactors than the public.  Although it was still open to the public.  The event was not as large as the Rendezvous in June: fewer reenactors, sutleries, food vendors, etc.  Still enjoyable though.  Hopefully, this year it won't be 90 degrees that weekend like it was I attended.
