Let your Kids Join in the Fun of Atv Riding

Let your kids join in the fun of ATV riding

ATV riding is fun. Well, not exactly fun, but exhilarating! For ATV riders, there are almost no words to describe the emotions that they go through when they get behind those wheels and ride them through the woods or trails and maneuver their machines to the right and to the left, going uphill and downhill and in some cases, doing jump tricks on their ATVs! It’s like you get this sudden rush of excitement when you are riding your ATV.

If you have kids and you yourself are an ATV enthusiast, you should really get your kids their own ATVs too. One good reason for you to get kids ATV for your children is that they will never have a reason to sneak out and take a ride on your ATV (which could be a dangerous thing to do) without your knowledge. Being an ATV enthusiast, you should know very well that a kid should never be allowed to ride on an adult’s ATV. If the price of kids ATVs is a major setback for you to get your kids their very own ATVs, it shouldn’t be anymore – because in recent years, the prices of kids ATVs have become very reasonable – more so with the Chinese ATVs in town.

After all, when you get your kids their own ATVs, you can begin planning for family vacations riding ATVs. In the past, you may have to leave your own ATV at home while you go away for family vacations, but with everyone in the family being a proud owner of an ATV each, planning for family vacations could be even more fun with ATV riding added to it. Instead of just spending your family vacations shopping and dining, how about camping in the woods with ATV riding? We are sure the kids will simply love this fantastic idea!

Gone are the days where ATVs were only for adults – they now have ATVs for kids and they come in various models and colors too! With the patents of ATVs expiring, the production of ATVs is becoming easier – which in turn means that affordable ATVs for kids are easier to find these days. You may want to try www.jackel.com and check out some of their ATVs for kids and believe it or not, they even have a pink ATV just for the girls! Another website that you can pay a visit to is www.kidatv.com

With their own ATVs, your kids will also get to experience the thrills and excitement that the adult ATV riders enjoy. Besides, ATVs for kids are easier to be handled by the younger riders compared to them trying to ride on ATVs that are built for adult riders. And yes, you can be sure that your kids are a lot safer when they ride on ATVs that are built for them than if they tried to ride on ATVs for adults. We believe that adults shouldn’t be the only ones who are able to enjoy the fun of ATV riding – we say, let the kids join in and share the fun too! It’s about time that the whole family should “gear” up and go ATVing together! Enjoy the ride!

Airsoft Game Types: Capture the Flag

Capture the Flag is a classic game type that is popular in both paintball and airsoft. Each team is tasked with capturing a flag and bringing it to a designated location while avoiding enemy fire.

Capture the flag is a versatile game type in that it can be adapted to accommodate large or small groups of players. There are several variations on the rules of Capture the Flag, a couple of which are described below.

Capture the Flag begins with two teams positioned at opposite ends of the playing field. Usually, each has its own base (or designated starting location) with a flag that the team must protect. Each team’s mission is to capture the opposing team’s flag and bring it safely to home base while defending its own flag and eliminating as many opponents as possible. Typically the rules stipulate that the flag must be visible at all times, including while it is being carried by a player. The rules dictated by the organizer will determine what happens if a player carrying the flag is hit. Either the flag must be returned to its original base or the player may drop the flag for a teammate to pick up and continue with the mission.

An alternative scenario called ‘Center Flag’ consists of two teams and two bases, but only one centrally located flag that each team must try to capture. In the single flag variation, victory goes to the team that returns the flag to its own base first. In an alternative scenario, the team may be required to capture the flag and bring it to the opponent’s base.

As with other airsoft game types, the rules for Capture the Flag vary among different organizations and fields. Even if you are an experienced player, be sure that you are familiar with the rules for the organization with which you are playing.

Paintball Basics

Paintball is a safe, simple yet challenging and strategic sport that is played usually by two teams, each with at least two players. Adults and kids alike enjoy this sport as they often refer to it as an advanced or improvised game of tag.

Tournaments attract many spectators of all ages, as it is a very exciting game to watch.

Paintball games are of various types, however, the most popular game often played is called “capture the flag”. The object or the goal of this game is for teams to advance to the opponent’s base, move the other team’s flag to its destined location, at the same time guarding your own flag.

The paintball field has many obstacles such as tires, forts, old cars, hay and the newest are “inflatables” that are constructed as refuge for team players; making the game all the more exciting, as if participating in an actual game of war in videos.  

When one is hit, it can hurt briefly and at times give players bruises.  Players are typically required to be in long sleeves shirt and pants, making sure that the color is not be identical as that of the judge and complete paintball gear such as mask, helmet and goggles for safety.

The sport of paintball has a distinct and accurate set of rules that are strictly followed. The producer of the tournament is the absolute authority in regard to either an alteration or addition to the rules; marshals oversee the event, and their decision is always final. No dispute on the paintball field is accommodated or entertained.

A military approach to paintball is useless, as that knowledge is recognized and understood by the teams. A team’s tactic should be carefully planned; your team’s line of attack will not be known by the opposing team, and there should be a quick switch of plans in case something goes wrong.

There must be a lot of team work involved, as everyone moves through the field. As a team member moves, there should be others to guard and keep watch and give off covering shots when necessary.  A team that moves together with a common objective will have a great chance of succeeding in this game.

Communication in the field is also very important.  A team-mate can shout the position of the opponent. The moment that a player is seen, the game for that player is up; so there is no reason for you to keep quite; instead, inform the others the location of the enemy.

The excitement of this game concludes when you are seen and eliminated – a situation that all team players struggle to avoid.
