Gallup Trails Annual Party at the McGaffey Wildlife Center

Join us for a weekend of fun in the beautiful Zuni Mountains for our annual member appreciation party. 

Annual Dinner Saturday 6 pm, featuring pit cooked meat with taco fixings and a hearty vegetarian posole. 

Live Music and Dancing featuring.

The fun starts Friday evening with camping and informal socializing at the clubhouse. Racers will be arriving
throughout the evening and night.

Our pit barbecue fire crew gets the fire started at 4:00 am Saturday morning, and racers start departing at 8:00 am.
The rest of us get up at a more decent hour and gather to drink coffee and breakfast at the arched metal Quonset hut kitchen. Later we will go for bike rides, hikes, pitch horseshoes, or just hang out. Local musicians will kick off the music in the afternoon on the back porch and entertain until 6:00 pm, when the evening festivities kick off with dinner, live music, and dancing 'til late.  

See you at the Quonset hut kitchen for coffee and continental/pot luck breakfast on Sunday morning, after which we wind things down, say goodbye til next year, and head for home. 

Featuring genuine pit cooked pork and turkey. The 
meat goes in at the start of the race, about 7 am and cooks until 5 pm. 

Master Pitmen tuck in the barbecue pit for a 10 hour nap.

150 lbs of smoking hot goodenss!

2005 Annual Party, the morning after. A reminder to be prepared, you never know how the weather will dance
when you throw a party in the Zuni Mountains!
