About HPRR

The Original High Plains Regional Rendezvous Association consists of a five state region including Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Minnesota. Each year the Association holds a Primitive Rendezvous in one of these states. The current rotation has the rendezvous in:

The High Plains are not as large as some rendezvous. They typically consist of 80 to 280 camps. However, they are much friendlier and more family-oriented rendezvous than many others. At each rendezvous you will find rifle and pistol shooting events, knife and hawk events, archery events, kids games, adult games, horse games, and a variety of seminars and demonstrations.

HPRR Loses Founding Member

Julie Ann Huebner, age 68, of Bushnell, died Friday, July 15, 2016, in Sioux Falls. She was a wonderful lady that spent her time helping her husband, Dave Huebner, run their pottery business (Dakota Stoneware). She was also one of the key people in the founding of the Original High Plains Regional Rendezvous Organization back in 1984 as well as the very first Booshway. Please keep Dave and family in your hearts and prayers in this tough time. More
