2017 Rendezvous Conference Approaching and NEW Social Events

The 2017 ID/MT ASLA and MTRPA Rendezvous Conference in Missoula, MT is approaching, but it is not too late to sign up! The conference is scheduled for Thursday, October 5 to Saturday, October 7. Check out the most up-to-date schedule along with speaker biographies.


We’re offering two exciting social programs in addition to the wonderful breakout sessions.

Gold Jacket, Green Jacket Golf Invitational
Thursday, October 5, 12 – 6pm, $40

Join us for the annual MTRPA golf outing before the conference begins! We’ll play 18 holes underneath Mount Sentinel on the east side of the Missoula Valley. The winner of the tournament will receive a to-be-coveted Green Jacket and the person with the highest score will receive a to-be-coveted Gold Jacket…but really, who cares? The invitational will include typical golfing with amazing views and prizes on some holes for closest pin, longest drive, and more! Other holes will feature hockey stick putting, funny equipment, and the dizzy hit!

We look forward to all different types of golfers and hockey players from recreational to PGA tour quality! We’ll make sure the Volkswagens and alligators stay off the course so we can have a ton of fun and maybe listen to some Carpenters after the round. Remember, there’s 375 more days until the next conference’s golf tournament, so sign up for the Gold Jacket, Green Jacket Golf Invitational.

Two-River Float Trip
Saturday, October 7, 2 – 6pm, $25 for adults, $10 for ages 12 & under

Why float one river when you can float two during your conference? Join Missoula Parks and Recreation for a relaxing and engaging float through the confluence of the Clark Fork and Blackfoot Rivers. Learn about the removal of the dam, float past the new Kettlehouse Amphitheater, Milltown State Park, FWP fishing access sites, Brennan’s Wave, and other Missoula must see locations! All equipment and guides provided.Please dress warmly with close toed shoes.  We will provide water and snacks for the time on the water. Shuttle will pick up from Holiday Inn at 2 pm and will return to Holiday Inn after float trip.
