ABOUT THE CLUB
Quesnel is a community so some 25,000 people, located in Northern British Columbia in the historic Cariboo region. Quesnel is referred to as the Gold Pan City, a reference to the Gold Rush days of the 1860s when Quesnel was the gateway to the Cariboo Goldfields of Wells, Barkerville, Likely, and Quesnelle Forks. Quesnel is 450 miles north of Vancouver, right on hwy 97 N.
Each year the Prospectors Car Club hosts the Goldpan Steak-out on the 2nd last weekend in August. This year on the Friday evening from 5-7 pm, there will be registration, complete with Mr. Mike's burgers and beverages at The Lodge catering facility in Red Bluff, just south of the Maple Park Mall.
Saturday morning from 10 am to 11 am, final registration will be held at the Maple Park Mall parking lot, before setting out on a rod run at 12 noon. The route will be taking you out and about, ending up back at the A & W South for lunch. A short break is given before the evening activities begin at The Lodge catering facility with Mr. Mike's providing the steak dinner, complete with all the trimmings. The evenings event begins at 6 pm with cocktails, and the dinner served at 7 pm, plus entertainment and dancing to follow. (no minors allowed)
On Sunday morning, it is the Show & Shine, being held this year in Lebourdais Park on the grass. Gates open at 7:30, with the show, judging, with food and refreshment from 10-3, followed by award presentation and goodbyes for the weekend.
Hope to see everyone out for a good time. Sunshine will be guaranteed by the car club president, Neil Muir.
