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 featuring a pit cooked Yucatecan Pig and Turkey Dinner with fixings as well
as Vegetarian Posole. 

Live Music and Dancing

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

Pit barbecue fire crew gets the fire started at 4:00 am Saturday morning, racers start departing at 7:00 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, perhaps catch the rise at McGaffey Lake, 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, the home brew contest, and live music and dancing 'til late.  

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

Featuring genuine pit cooked pork and turkey, as well as vegetarian posole. The 
meat goes in at the start of the race, about 7 am and cooks until 6 pm. 

Master Pitman Michael Schmaltz and Bill Siebersma tuck in the barbecue pit for a 10 hour nap.
