On Sunday, April 14th, 2013, SCIP gave five rugby kids, an opportunity to ride ATV’s at Prairie City SVRA. The area offers off-highway vehicle enthusiasts a variety of interesting terrain and trails for motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, and 4-wheel drive vehicles. There are flat, open grasslands, rolling hills with native blue oak trees, and acres of cobbled mine tailings left after gold dredges combed ancient river beds in search of gold during the late 1800s. Beginners as well as experts find the variety of terrain both challenging and enjoyable.
Instructor Robert Huack, a Deputy Sheriff from the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department, volunteered his time to give our rugby boys, the proper instructions on how to ride an ATV. Once completing the class requirements and learning how to properly operate an ATV, the instructor took the kids on their first ATV course. It was a great experience for the kids, as most of them, had never had the opportunity to ride an ATV.
SCIP will be bringing this program back during the summer of 2013. Please stay tuned and visit our website, to get future dates and details.
