DonDiego Rains, 10, of Holman, placed in various competitions at the Rocky Mountain National Rendezvous in Colorado, which he attended with his father in July.
Rendezvous is a recreation of the fur trade era where everything in sight must be of a pre-1840 style. Clothing is of the period, tents are canvas and cooking is over wood. All vehicles must be out of camp by Saturday evening and stay out until the following Saturday afternoon. No plastic, nylon, aluminum, electricity or propane are permitted.
