NAPgA Rendezvous in Island Park, ID a Success!


The 2018 Rendezvous at Island Park was very successful despite a bit of damp weather. The Board was grateful for some good tent cover during their meeting. The “Country Store” and Saturday night auction were a great success, with over $3000 generated!

Talks were very well-attended. Marc Warnke shared his wisdom and experience hunting with packgoats, and he and Matt Lyons showed off a variety of saddles they’ve used. 

Clay Zimmerman demonstrated proper saddling technique.

Nan Hassey gave a talk on proper saddle fit.

Marc Warnke demonstrated his new packsaddle design.

Dwite Sharp gave a very well-attended talk on goat nutrition and parasites.

This was probably the best-attended Rendy in NAPgA history. This event keeps growing every year, and it does not disappoint. One of the best aspects is the variety of wisdom and experience that comes together in one place for a weekend. There is also a great deal of fun and camaraderie. We’re already looking forward to Rendy 2019!
