33rd Annual Hart Canyon Rendezvous Has Been Cancelled Due To Unsafe Road Conditions
***We are sorry to announce that the 2017 Rendezvous has been cancelled due to unsafe road conditions.*** Mother Nature has been fickle for us in California. After three years of severe drought, we received record rainfalls resulting in mudslides and washouts, wiping out the county roads all the way to the rendezvous site and wreaking havoc on the ranch property. This is only the second time in 33 years that we have had to cancel, however your safety is our highest concern. We plan to be back up and running for the April 2018 Rendezvous with all the fun and then some. We look forward to seeing you all again. Until then, safe travels!
