Those that missed out on the Pauls Valley rendezvous missed a good one. We had a great time and hats off to Mike Tower for doing an excellent job! There were plenty of sites to see and good speakers, which talked about the subject matter of the area. Many authors were also present to sign their new books or talk about upcoming projects. See those that missed this one at our next one, in 2006!
It was a fantastic rendezvous and I we had a good turn out with several local people attending who were not members of Oklahombres. I know several of them picked up applications. Anyone who has not attended an Oklahombres Rendezvous...you are definitely missing out on a fantastic time surrounded by some great people. Hope to see everyone at our next one in 2006.

The presentations by Mike Tower, Mike Koch, Diron Ahlquist, and Bill Paul were outstanding. This program really opened my eyes to the "wild west" aspects of Pauls Valley, I.T. In one particular year, Pauls Valley experienced the same number of shooting deaths as Dodge City! Just one more example that Oklahoma has more lawman/outlaw history than any other state.
was there any record of persons being hung for Horse theivery after 1910
