2005 Eastern AMM Territorial Rendezvous

The site of the 2005 AMM Eastern was nestled in amongst the beautiful pine and hardwood forests of Southeastern Missouri.  The Rendezvous Booshway for this event was adamant that an AMM Rendezvous should provide the opportunities to use the skills about which members read, learn and teach to others. The primary focus of this year's camp centered on 11 Rocky Mountain Colleges covering a wide range of topics related to skills that the original mountain men would have used and that pertain to requirements for advancement in some manner within the organization.
