Stepping back into the 19th century with the annual Fraser Valley Frontiersmen’s Winter Rendezvous

A group of black powder gun enthusiasts have gathered in Chilliwack this weekend for the Fraser Valley Frontiersmen Winter Rendezvous at the Chilliwack Fish and Game Protective Association.

The annual event sees folks from throughout B.C. test their skills at black powder rifle and pistol shooting, archery, and knife and tomahawk throwing.

The event was originally scheduled for early February, but was postponed due to winter conditions.
