Shooting camp results past 3 years

MN Biathlon Shooting Camp results, times, scores 2016

If you find your name you can scroll across and see old results and this years for comparison. The camp format changes somewhat each year, but the hill climb, time trials, etc are all on the same courses as previous years. This year I think the wind was up more days and stronger/fluctuating more.

Any questions or corrections, please let me know.
