May 5-7  Bloody Lake Rendezvous

I highly recommend visiting this wonderful historical event in Lafayette County.  The location is Black Hawk Memorial Park — also the site of one of the DAR markers placed by our original chapter, the Rhoda Hinsdale Chapter of Shullsburg, from which our chapter grew.  The Rendezvous is a gathering of friends and history enthusiasts including pioneer structures, traders, music, and black powder gun shooting, tomahawk throwing, and archery.  There are activities for children and adults.  And shopping!  I was able to obtain fabric for a colonial sewing project there, and plan to wear it to show the seller.  I also hope to bring my grandchildren who will surely enjoy it.
