Geocache Description:


The event will include a Walkers Whole Hog BBQ followed by a bonfire, movie and fireworks. All GeoKids and GeoPets welcome.

Where: TurdleEggs Ranch (the coordinates above)
When
: Saturday, Sept 19 anytime after noon

If you are posting a "Will Attend" please indicate how many adults and children will be coming and if you are bringing any pets. Scroll down for more information.

Update: If you are bringing something for the potluck, a side dish or salad would be appreciated. There are already plenty of desserts coming.

BBQ Pork on a Bun and Potluck

The BBQ Pork on a Bun and potluck will be served at 4:00. Please bring a side dish, salad or dessert to share with your fellow Geocachers. Also please bring your own drinks.

Update: We're dining on a local Whole Hog BBQ this year - Walkers. Walkers provides a fresh (never frozen) pig.

To quote Dragonfreys, "A good potluck rule of thumb is to bring enough in the dish to feed your family if that is all they ate. Many people attempt to feed the whole group and you end up with way too much food. The fun thing about potlucks is you never really know what is going to be there, but usually works out to be quite a variety. Also be prepared to list ingredients as required for those who suffer food allergies"

The kitchen will be available for preparing and heating food. To try and keep down the amount of stuff you'll need to bring, the following will be provided:

  • Condiments and seasonings
  • Plates, bowls and cups
  • Cutlery and serving utensils
  • Serviettes
  • Coffee and tea

Jenga Bonfire

The bonfire will start about 7:30 p.m.

Outdoor Movie

The movie will commence about 8:00 p.m.

Update: We'll be watching Arthur and the Invisibles complements of Jokers Sound and Light

Spectacular Fireworks

Fireworks will commence about 10:00 p.m.

Lawn Chairs and Clothing

Please bring your own lawn chairs and come dressed for the weather. It may cool off in the evening.

Outdoor Games

There will be activities for the little kids and Bocce balls available for the big ones

Parking

Please come into the driveway, turn around at the garage, and park on the right side of the driveway facing out.

Out of Towners

There's room to camp or park a trailer at the ranch and we'll even let you use the indoor plumbing! Send us an e-mail if you'd like to camp.
 

There's plenty to do on your day in the country. In addition to caching your way out to the BBQ, there's:

  • Fishing . . .

For brown trout at the Reynolds Ponds by the Reynold's Ponds Cache. The road in from Ross can be quite challenging at times, but the road north from the TransCanada highway is usually good.

  • Bird Watching . . .

Take a walk through the marsh by following the trail along the English River from N49 46.439 W96 31.483 to N49 46.878 W96 32.596. If you’re lucky, you may catch a glimpse of the Sandhill Cranes - you'll certainly hear them! The trail is within walking distance of the BBQ event.

  • ATV Playground . . .

This is ATV country. There's a large ATV community in Ross and there's some great riding through miles of gravel pits and trails close to Ross around N49 45.586 W96 24.924. There's also about a square mile of 70 year old gravel pits and trails in and around the Aqueduct cache.

  • Picnicking . . .

    Where do country folk go for a day in the country? The gigantic former Lafarge gravel pit with it's 1.2 km long lake, rolling hills and artifacts from when the railway used to come right into this huge pit site. The What a view cache is located here.
