To my surprise, several club members attended the Prairie City PIG Meeting yesterday 12/15. I was a little concerned what jargon we would hear having never been involved in a meeting like this with Prairie City. It was pretty informative and afterwards, I have to say I was glad I attended. The staff at Prairie City seems to be very pro OHV use which makes sense.

They discussed several issues pertaining to the park, their fight with the county for access to their event entrance after the redesign of White Rock Rd, regulation changes to event permits, general fund issues, future expansion plans, obstacle construction and a slue of other topics. Let's skip ahead and talk about what we really care about and that's the obstacle construction.

In the summer of 2016, they plan to develop the 4x4 area with additional obstacle construction. This new obstacle will connect the whoops by the pyramid to the pipeline route with the intentions of creating a more trail like experience. The obstacle will have three routes through it, a tall pipe style hill to go up and over, a smaller version hill and a valley to maneuver through. Loose rocks will be placed before and after the hill climbs. They had a pretty cool little model of what they plan to build.

They were seeking recommendations or changes to the model. I think it would be a great addition to the park.

Thanks everyone for attending as well, Betty, Gil, Rob, Linda, Guy, Jeff, and Rob's buddy...(I'm so bad with names).silly

Um...what?

We actually enjoyed the meeting as well. We were pleasantly surprised to hear how much they have on their plate and how pro-public use they are. They seem to be well organized and ambitious for improvements that will be fun for all kinds of OHV users. We look forward to this improvement..

It as kinda fun to see some of the gang too. 🙂
