After an exciting day in Gimli, our group travelled to Petersfield (Métis community) area for a Western BBQ Beef dinner ... complete with salad, rolls, potatoes, Laurie Hunt's special seasoned cream corn, cake and coffee ... at Hunt's Country Roadhouse (BadAss Jack's) and Museum, which is chock full of fascinating antiques and country collectibles. Then Alex Lamoureux (B.C. provincial fiddler in 2008 and 2009) and friend will raise the roof with some real old-style western, Métis and barn dance tunes. The Clan Ross Manitoba ran its own cash bar again at cost.
Since this was the final event of the AGM, we said our goodbyes and were transported back to the Norwood Hotel by 9 pm.
