Due to warm weather, poor natural snow, and problems with snowmaking equipment Anchorage has decided they can’t hold the events. Accordingly MN stepped up to the plate and Trials will be held at Mt Itasca—same schedule.
More information shortly. Do not register for the AK events on line—we will have a registration process set up shortly.
To all –
Due to the warm weather, the Woodland Trails in Elk River, including the biathlon range, will be closed until at least Monday.
Please do not use the trails or the biathlon range during this time.
To all –
In the last few years, we have been lax about requiring membership forms and dues for Minnesota Biathlon – Twin Cities. Membership is required to use the Elk River biathlon range. We have ongoing maintenance and supply expenses to run the range. It is time we got back to doing things “by the book”.
Attached you will find a membership form. If you want to use the Elk River biathlon range, you must be a member of MN Biathlon. In addition to range use, this also gets you required insurance.
The membership year runs from July 1 – June 30.
Please complete the form and send it back to me with your check.
PS – If there are new junior biathletes who are not on this distribution list, please send me their e-mails and I will add them to our distribution lists.
Because of warm weather forecast this weekend we will start all the races at 10 AM with zero at 9 AM !!!! We have enough man made snow but earlier start will guarantee better ski condition for everyone.
Please let me know if you have any questions,
