26th Annual Arkansas Canoe Club Rendezvous
October 4-6th, 2019
2115 Tanner St, Malvern, AR (previously ORBI Rentals)
Sanctioned by the American Canoe Association
Rendezvous is like summer camp for paddlers, except it’s in the fall, and it’s not a camp, but there are activities…. You get to choose which ones you participate in!
Rendezvous Headquarters (HQ) will be riverfront area including the pavilion and fire pit. This is where most of the events will take place and the meeting place for others. Mini-clinics are being offered this year formatted in time blocks that allow everyone to participate, and get some time on the river too. Check back for a link to pre-register for clinics.
The new location allows you to spend the day floating the river or surfing at Rockport, and then float down to your campsite at the end of the day.
Where to Sleep
Primitive On-Site Camping: ORBI is private property and ours for the weekend. Set up your camp anywhere within the property bounds. The further away from the pavilion area, the more quiet, generally. There is room to spread out, and drive your car to your preferred site. There is no electricity available for campsites. Port-a-lets and 2 indoor bathrooms will be available for the weekend. Please no RVs or large campers at this site( no hookups and you might get stuck in the field.)
Not-So-Primitive Camping: Lake Catherine State Park, 20 minutes away has reservable sites with full hook-ups.
Not Camping: This venue is very near the bustling town of Malvern, and several hotel options are within 5 minutes of the festivities.
Other Stuff to Know
We want you to stay at Rendezvous all weekend, but if that's not in the cards there's plenty of fun to be had on Saturday. Adult beverages are welcome. Rude behavior is not. Well behaved four legged family members are welcome too. Please observe all park regulations which essentially amount to not being a jerk.
