Quesnel Outback Quadders hold meet n’ greet pig roast

Fifty guests got to feast for free and check out the local trails

The Quesnel Outback Quadders Society threw a pig roast at the Deacon Creek ATV trails on Saturday (June 1).

Approximately 50 people from Quesnel, Prince George, Parksville and Burns Lake camped out for the weekend and took to the trails.

“It was a meet and greet to get the public involved, so they can see what we’re about,” says club president Norm McNabb. “We wanted to show off the trails and meet other people.”

McNabb says the conditions were pretty good, although a little muddy. But he was unable to get much riding done as he was tending to the pig most of the day.

The process saw McNabb get up at 3 a.m. to get the coals going and then pay careful attention for the nine hours it took to cook.

In addition to the pork, the club served hot dogs, burgers, chili, salads and desserts, all free of charge.

A 50/50 draw and a raffle were held with all proceeds going towards trail maintenance.

The Outback Quadders’ next major event will be a poker run on July 7.
