Current High Plains Regional Rendezvous

2019 HPRR Frequently Asked Questions


Q. Why should I pre-register? - 

A.  Pre-registration is very helpful to the running of the event. It brings in money needed to get contracts for services, etc. taken care of. Plus, one medallion is included with pre-registration. Registrations received after May 1st are an additional $10 and medallions are also an additional charge if still available.

Q. How early can I set up?
  Early set up begins June 13.  If traders would like to come in earlier, please contact the Booshway or Segundo to make arrangements.

Q. If I come in before the start date, do I need to be in period clothing immediately?
  No, it is not required, but recommended.  Those that are on site ahead of you are 'already at rendezvous' so it's a matter of consideration for others to try and be in period dress after setup. We want to encourage everyone to set up their camp in as timely a manner as they are able. 
Period dress will be required at all time (including loading and unloading) starting on Saturday, June 16th. 
There will be a changing tent at registration for your convenience.

Q. Are there showers available?

A. No, there are not showers on site.


Q. What will the weather be like? 

A.  Sheldon, ND averages are in the 70s for highs and 50s for lows, but we have extreme temperature variations we can be in the 90’s or down in the 40’s. There is always a chance of rain and storms.


Q. Will the ladies be "creekin"? 

A. We are hoping so, we are right on the Sheyenne River.  If the river is lower we should have no problem.  If the river is low we may have sandbars to sit on too.


Q. When will Trader Row be open?

A.  We will not have a specific Trader Row – The entire camp will be open to the public Saturday & Sunday, June 14 & 15th 10am – 5pm.  Please note that all trade rules will be enforced from the moment traders are set up, not just after opening ceremonies.
