....They are few, but we WILL enforce them.
First and foremost.........KEEP IT PRIMITIVE!!
There is a 1 hour limit on getting your mule unpacked and into the parking corral. Vehicles in camp are a big disruption. Your cooperation is appreciated.
NO loaded weapons in camp.
NO early set-ups unless you are pre-registered. (Early setup is the weekend before the rendezvous.) 
NO pets, ** This includes visitors.** If you can't ride it or eat it, don't bring it.
NO unmanned fires. Keep a bucket of water at hand for us to use to put out your fire should we find it unattended. This rule will be heavily enforced.
Be sure to make provisions for extra water near your fire in case it is needed.
NO flash cameras after dark. They disrupt the primitive atmosphere.
All primitive traders welcome. There is no extra charge.
Visitors hours are from 9 AM to 4 PM sharp. If you are not in primitive attire after 4 PM, you will be asked to leave.

RANGE RULES
1 Non-magnifying Diaopters and focusing apertures MAY be used on all ranges.
This is a departure from previous rules and has been decided by OVPR club members.
The primary purpose of this is to allow our mature members to keep shooting.
2. NO Loaded Guns leave the Range, Period.
You may leave the gun at the registration entrance of the range and go back into camp for tools, if you need them.
3. 3 hammer falls is a miss, unless specified by the target description. For example, a thrown clay pigeon would be a simulated hunting shot and a single hammer fall.
4. Absolutely no non-shooting observers on the range, unless they are range assistants
No Spectators!
5. No slings will be used as a steadying aid. If your gun has a sling, it swings in the breeze.
6. No Amber or other color shooting glasses. Photogrey lenses on prescription glasses are permitted.
7. No sharing of guns. Only one person uses any one gun at any time on any range. Two people using the same gun causes the shooting to slow and creates bottlenecks
