Bourgeois Eugene Fowles
I am your 2016 Booshway, Eugene Fowles. This will be my third time as Booshway. I hope this means 3 strikes and you’re out.
A lot of you know me but those who don’t, I will tell you a little about me. I have been on the board of Directors for the Fort Bridger Rendezvous Association for over 14 years, and been Booshway 3 times, 2006, 2012 and now 2016. I have a great and supportive wife, Maria, a super daughter Shalayne who was Booshway last year, 2015. I have a wonderful son-in-law Paul, and a terrific grandson, Dylan.
I love to hunt, fish, trap, and anything I can do outdoors in the mountains. I own and operate sawmill. I harvest my own timber. I was a Masonry Contractor until I semi-retired 2 years ago. I am a Taxidermist and enjoy working with wood. I also paint a little with oils.
I have a great passion for Fort Bridger Rendezvous and will do my best to keep and make it the best Rendezvous in the country.
I know since I been on the Board we have had a lot of changes. Most have been for the good. And some have needed improvement. But I believe that for most part we do present a Great Rendezvous.
I think I will end this now so I don’t bore you completely to death.
We will have more latter in the Rendezvous Guide.
Your Booshway 2016

Bob Christensen (Segundo)
December 15, 2015
My name is Bob Christensen, mountain name True Story. I have been involved with rendezvousing and Fort Bridger since the early 1980′s. I have always been a student of the era and few things give me more enjoyment than learning about their way of life. I look forward to spending time in the back country with my horses and imagination. I have been a trader at Fort Bridger for many years. My wife and two boys have attended many rendezvous events throughout the years which has given me a good perspective for being a family event.
I am very excited to be the Segundo this year and am absorbing the task with enthusiasm and anticipation. Although I am relatively new with the administration portion of the rendezvous, I am comforted with the knowledge of having a board with vast experience and willingness to help. Finally, Eugene Fowles, who has proven to be one of the most skilled Bourgeois, will be there to show me how to guide a successful rendezvous.
I look forward to meeting you,
