Team Moline would like to thank the members of the Rock Island Conservation Club for allowing team members to practice at their club. One of the biggest issues we have faced over the last year was getting a routine practice schedule put together so the team could get out on the water and improve their skills. The board members at RICC stepped up to help solve this problem. On March 16, 2010 Coach Prybil asked the RICC board to consider allowing team Moline to have access to fish the clubs waters. A motion was made and passed to allow this to happen. The club is located within about 8 minutes of the high school and has three nice sized lakes stocked with a variety of fish. Below is some info about the club taken from their website.
The Rock Island Conservation Club was founded April 21, 1939 by seven men who saw a need for an organization to preserve local natural resources. In it’s beginnings the club was operated as a pheasant farm. Pheasants were hatched, raised and then released to the wild. The donated land originally was a sand quarry owned by Moline Consumers Co.
Currently the club is more involved in fundraising and volunteer help for conservation oriented organizations. It is also one of the 5 organizations that comprise the Quad City Conservation Alliance(QCCA) which owns and operates the QCCA Expo Center. ?
