2018 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 15 are an additional $10 and medallions are also an additional charge if still available.
Q.How early can I set up?
A. Early set up begins June 14. 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?
A. 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. Kansas average high are mid 80-low 90s. Lows in the 60s-70s. There is always a chance of rain and storms.
Q. Will the ladies be "creekin"?
A. Yes, Corndodger Creek meanders through camp with a number of great "Creekin" opportunities for the ladies.
Q. When will Trader Row be open?
