ABOVE: Members of Boy Scout Troop 38 from Concordia get ready to prepare a meal Friday during the start of the 36th annual Trappers' Rendezvous at Harvey County West Park. The three-day event draws thousands of people from across the region and features events such as a chili and Spam cook-off, a B-B gun range and black powder rifle shooting. Shannon Metz with Harvey County West Park said park staff work hard to help pull off the event each year, along with assistance from the Harvey County Sheriff's department and Halstead Fire/EMS.
