Rendezvous Merit

The Rendezvous Merit

National Rendezvous provides a unique opportunity for FCF members from all across the nation to come together and celebrate the color and flair of the American frontiersmen. The Rendezvous Merit is a silver skill merit boys may earn by participating in the various rendezvous activities.  This merit may be used to satisfy Royal Rangers advancement requirements as any other silver skill merit.

Merit patches may be picked up by adult outpost leaders during Rendezvous at the Trading Post on Thursday or requested from the national Royal Rangers office by e-mail at As with all merits, your group leader will determine when you have satisfactorily met the requirements for this merit.
