FCF is a special program of the Royal Rangers Ministry that provides boys and men with additional opportunities to develop specialized outdoor skills based on the lore and traditions of the early american frontiersman. Our Purpose is to Inspire Brotherhood among our members, Promote Personal Development through advancement and training, and Provide Valuable Service to Royal Rangers and beyond. The Voyagers Territory is made up of the Great Lakes Region and our FCF membership is made up of the Heny Rowe Schoolcraft (MI), Abe Lincoln (IL), Simon Kenton (IN), Coureur De Bois (OH), and the Long Rifles (KY) Chapters.
Territorial Rendezvous are an outdoor event that typically includes competitions such as a black powder shoot, tomahawk throwing, knife throwing, a best outfit contest, flint and steel, fire building, and trading, learning of new skills, crafts, and other frontier-related activities. Territorial Rendezvous are commonly held every two years.
This year we will be offering all three FCF advancement experiences.
Interested in joining FCF or looking to advance? Link on over to the National FCF website and get your copy of a FCF Experience Workbook today.
Greetings FCF members of the great Voyagers Territory and beyond!
Time is of the essence, the first registration discount cutoff is August 31. The earlier you sign up, the better the discounted rate; up to $20 in savings!
As a special treat for Young Bucks who pre-register, I will be giving a bag of marbles. We will have an old fashion ‘marble shooting’ competition. So practice up, it’s going to be fun!
On another note, thanks to the devastating Emerald Ash Borer Beetle, the state park has banned the use of any/all firewood that has not been heat treated and from out of the area (the only exception is hardwood floor cut-offs available from flooring contractors). You ‘must’ use heat treated wood purchased from the local area (available on-site at the park, and in adjacent cities at Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, etc.). Some of us will arrive early to mitigate costs by cutting up some of the dead trees “on-site” as marked and allowed by the Park director. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
