Rendezvous 2020 is being organized by the Quesnel Tumbling Rivers Rock Club with the assistance of the British Columbia Lapidary Society. Rendezvous will feature field trips to Barkerville, Barkerville Gold Mines, and several local collecting and gold panning sites. We will also be organizing a trip to Barkerville Brewing Co. where attendees can take a break from swinging the pickaxe and taste test local craft beers. There will be wire wrapping lessons, sales tables, and of course the Rendezvous traditions - supper, bucket raffle, and auction. More details will be posted in the new year.
