An annual 4-day family event with a strong outdoor theme. The Rendezvous is organised by Tamarack Outdoors and held at Tawd Vale Campsite, near Lathom in Lancashire
Consisting of 80 acres of lush woodlands in the heart of the West Lancashire countryside, Tawd Vale has long been a favourite site for generations of campers. The River Tawd from which the site derives its name wanders through the centre of the camp and adds to the natural beauty of the surrounding area, a place of fun and adventure.
Everyone is welcome, from young and old, to come and camp and join in all the activities. Over the four days there are lectures, demonstrations, 'how to' sessions and activities for all the family.
With large flat grass glades and banks of mature trees you will always find a great pitch at Tawd Vale.

You are able to park on hard standing areas close to your tent pitch. For those who prefer to use a hammock and tarp you can pitch camp in the woodland area.

Within Tawd Vale is a flooded quarry known as The Delph. This is available to use for those with canoes but you need to be self-reliant, please ensure you have all necessary safety equipment.
The focal point of the RV is the Tamarack HQ. The Tamarack Team are based here co-coordinating the event, answering questions and are always on hand for any technical equipment queries.

The HQ is also where the team will be running the Tamarack Rendezvous Mini Store for all those essential or forgotten items.

RV2019 will also see the Tamarack Café in full operation. Based at the HQ the Café will be serving breakfast and then tea, coffee and cakes for the rest of the day. An evening meal will also be on offer each day.
For 2019 sees the return of the Rendezvous Trading Post.

The idea came from Mike at the RV2017 where he brought along a box of second hand outdoor clothing and equipment and nearly sold the lot.

So if you have some outdoor related kit bring it along and sell it direct from the Tamarack HQ.

The rules are that the kit has to be clean, well maintained and serviceable with a price label attached.
RV2019 round up...
Well another Tamarack Rendezvous over and already plans are taking shape for 2020. I must say this RV was great, all of us involved at Tamarack really enjoyed it and the folk that attended should be applauded as the weather was a little sketchy at times.
A big thanks goes out to Mike and Dave and the rest of the team for the greenwood and leather workshops along with the range work. A good number of RV’ers were sporting flashy new knife sheaths over the weekend.
For me the attendance on my workshops was encouraging as always my eyes and ears are open for me to learn new skills, along with imparting a little knowledge back.I am sure you will agree the site is awesome for our event and it spurs me on to find new workshops in the woods.
As always at Tamarack we are open to suggestions of how we can improve the event and itinerary so please let us know.
For those of you we only see once a year take care and see you in 2020. For others we see on a more regular basis no doubt we will chat in the shop or on a Moot or course very soon.

And remember, keep your bearing straight, your knife sharp and your rucksack light.

More Information will follow on our 2020 event as soon as it is finalised.
