MNCup #6 update

photoOur races this coming weekend are looking better and better. 3″ of fairly heavy snow today and still snowing. We have been shoveling at both the range and at the ARB in town the last few days in preparation for the MNCup #6 biathlon on Saturday [10:00 zero]  and the Lumberjack Jaunt 6/16km citizens race on Sunday at 11:00, so this will pack and level down nicely on top of our hard work!!!

Come join us–and we will have a pot of soup and some sandwich items over here at our house after the biathlon race on Saturday. You can register online yet for the LJJ and that includes a meal for the participants.
