The non-profit Apache County ATV Club promotes ATV/UTV riding in the Eagar/Springerville Arizona area. Their mission is to help educate the public on proper and responsible riding and the importance of protecting our natural resources to ensure the ability of future generations to enjoy the beauty and bounty of our forests. In order to help complete this mission they organize and sponsor the annual Arizona ATV Outlaw Trail Jamboree, set for September 8-12, 2015.
“The ATV/UTV lifestyle is all about enjoying family and friends while exploring all that nature has to offer,” says DragonFire social media manager Chris Moore. “Our friends and neighbors from RideNow have participated in this event for the past 12 years, and they invited us to join in the fun and make some memories with them this year.” Talk about an offer you can’t refuse!
With everything from an ice cream social, ATV parade down Main Street, ATV/UTV Rodeo and Mud Bog Events, nightly Wild West shoot outs and drawings for some serious swag (including a new Polaris donated by RideNow), this event has some memorable elements for every member of the family, concluding with an epic fireworks show. However at DragonFire, some of our best memories come from the trail rides… which The Outlaw Trail Jamboree delivers in spades, introducing its participants to trails through high country pine and aspen forests that are still pretty much untouched and unchanged over the last 100 years.
“And when you are done with a trail ride, you can cruise your quad or UTV right down the middle of Main Street,” adds Moore. “Both the Town of Springerville and Town of Eagar, as well as Apache County law enforcement agencies work with the Jamboree organizers and will not ticket non-street legal ATVs/UTVs that are participating in the Jamboree. Guess that is where the ‘Outlaw’ name came from?”
Not quite, Chris… Seems that Springerville was literally Arizona’s last outlaw holdout which prevented Arizona from becoming a state. Tall tales around the campfire about the area’s outlaw past are another integral part of this memorable event. If this sounds like a good way to make some UTV memories of your own during the Labor Day holiday, join DragonFire and RideNow for the Outlaw Jamboree!
