Yolo County Children's Alliance began as Yolo County's child-abuse prevention council in 2002. It's a big job for a mere ten administrators and social workers to tackle, but luckily they have the support of county residents. That support allows them to put on events such as the annual family fun run?a jaunt through UCD's stunning arboretum that helps the organization raise critical funds to connect families with support services. They also host fundraisers, child abuse awareness events, and family strengthening outreach programs, which build up families by having each member pick up and hug the next smallest person for 15 reps.
Saskia Darnell, Lavender Screw's head artist, has been showcasing her artwork in galleries and exhibits since she was a child. In 2006, Saskia entered the student art exhibit at the Los Angeles County Fair and took home first place, and was featured in seven other art exhibits while earning her bachelor's in fine art. Students of all levels can enjoy BYOB classes, which feature a variety of paintings for students to emulate through step-by-step instruction. Paint Your Pet nights invite artists to transform a blank canvas into a colorful homage to their dog, cat, or secretly cloned woolly mammoth.

Behind a rough-hewn wooden fa?ade, walls embellished with wheels and cycles surround Apex Cycles & Services' solo employee, Aaron Curtin. While stocking the store with quality bikes and parts from brands such as Kona, Continental, and De Rosa, Aaron builds an excellent rapport with customers by executing thorough cycle services for almost all makes and models. Bike treatments range from basic tune-ups to comprehensive overhauls that include the installation of fresh parts and a deep cleansing. Aaron also constructs bikes from custom components and works with clients to accommodate all budgets by utilizing prviously used parts and allowing patrons to whittle down debts by volunteering at the shop. Aaron can pick up and drop off two-wheelers himself or welcome them into his store with more delight than a BMX rider moving to a neighborhood filled with drained pools.
The locations that comprise Paintball Tickets challenge hue-happy gamers to a range of combative revelry fought with air-powered paintbrushes. During games, referees maintain a fun and lighthearted wartime experience while competitors engage in capture-the-flag style strategy. As players navigate the terrain on a quest to invade the other team's territory and avoid epidemics of trenchfoot, they covertly scope opponents and peg them with bright-colored pellets to dull their chance at victory.
A stress-shedding family-friendly sport for splatter soldiers of all types and stripes, paintball grants its combatants the perfect backdrop for one-on-one duels or group-oriented maneuvers. Spread out your tickets over six solo sessions, or round up five friends, coworkers, or NBA starters for a fast-paced adrenaline-fueled jaunt across unique indoor and outdoor terrains that can include pastoral fields and themed villages. Each trek arms guests with a battle mask and goggles, semiautomatic paintball marker, hopper and tanker, and orientation that lays out the rules, safety precautions, and the symbolism behind to Jackson Pollack’s early work.
