2007 AMM National Rendezvous
Capitaine and Booshway
The 2007 AMM Nationals was held from 24-30 June, hosted by the Manuel Lisa Party, and booshwayed by Gene Hickman. The site was on Odell Creek in the Pioneer mountains south of Wise River Montana. The campsite was about 1/3 a mile from the trailhead and parking area traveling through lush meadows with beaver ponds and home to brookies, golden trout, cutthroat trout, and grayling. Rocky Mountain Colleges were held each day with additional discussion groups in the evening, put on by both members of the AMM and WFT. The Grand Council meeting was Thursday, with a potluck that evening. Over the week 93 members and guests of the AMM and WFT attended. The pilgrims in attendance were able to complete all their requirements except the first two. WFT awarded belts to sisters who completed their requirements for advancement as well.
