Invitation to June Elk River Shooting Camp

The Elk River June Shooting Camp starts the 25th and goes through the 27th. This is in the middle of the week following the Mt Itasca camp which starts on the 19th through the 23rd. Ideally you would attend both camps. But as a minimum you should get to one of them!! At Mt Itasca we do a lot of testing—both physical and shooting to establish your personal baseline or to measure your improvements. At Elk River we will focus on ski technique, shooting skills, and range procedures on roller skis.

Coming up in July we will start our summer series of biathlon races on roller skis at Elk River… we expect you to participate in those!!

If you plan to attend a camp or both, and have not yet contacted me-please do so this weekend! We are trying to set up logistics and tracking openings. We still have some room at Mt Itasca along with 5 slots at Elk River.

So get out the door—take your training seriously! 
And Enjoy the Journey!

June Camps

Good Morning!

We are now approaching the June Shooting Camps. The Mt Itasca camp starts 2 weeks from today:

The original invitation:

This is the invitation to the First June Camp [19th thru 23rd] including the waiver, plus the tentative schedule of events. The camp will accommodate a wide range of abilities and is designed to build your ski and shooting skills. Just as this past weekend, you will get coaching appropriate for your level at this point.

Housing will be similar to the May weekend. Camping at Mt Itasca, staying in the waxroom, or on your own. The more who stay at the venue, the more fun it is for all!!

The camp is designed primarily for Boys/Girls; Youth and Juniors. Ages 14 though 21. For those 12 or 13 yr olds who are fairly mature, you should talk to Vlad or me about whether the camp is for you. You would need to have a parent with you.

Please let me know, along with Vlad, if you plan to attend.

So far I have heard from:
Joey DelToro Kaisa and Ryker Bosek
Saylor Landrum Piper Wilson
Jake Statz Emma and Sam Stertz
Maxim and Jamilah Gusiv Jackson and Connor Grant
Julia Torresani Gabe Raguse

The following week – Tues the 16th thru Thurs the 18th, we will have a camp at the Elk River range. This camp will be focused on additional shooting skills, combined with roller skiing on the Woodland Trails. We will work a lot on ski technique and skills along with shooting with ski equipment on, range procedure, and combo training.

As so far we have two groups coming—Those who live in the TC area and a group from Alexandria. I am going to leave housing up to the individuals. So the cost will be minimal—$25 per person to cover range costs. Bring your own lunches.

Please let me know if you plan to attend.

Also a special note to the younger athletes under 16. Please let me know if you would be interested in a one day camp at Elk River to introduce you to biathlon. If the interest is there, I will try to figure out a good day in mid July.

So far I have heard from:
Joey
Saylor
Kaisa
Ryker
Teresa Bitzan

As I mentioned previously, this camp is also open to Seniors and Masters on a waiting list basis. It appears we will have a couple of openings, but that could change over the next couple of weeks.

I know a few are still finishing the school year—but think ahead a bit and jump on in! Serious training has started with next winter in the horizon!!

Enjoy the Journey!

May 10+10 results for shooting contest

If you have not already done so, please send in a picture of your best 10+10 target for May. I will tabulate that with those I already have, and on Wed I will send out the results for May. Then get cracking and send in your June results. At the end of June we will add the two together and the winner will get a free brick of ammo from MNBiathlon!

All ages from both WI and MN are invited to participate.

First June Camp 2019

Just in from Vlad. This is the invitation to the First June Camp [19th thru 23rd] including the waiver, plus the tentative schedule of events. The camp will accommodate a wide range of abilities and is designed to build your ski and shooting skills. Just as this past weekend, you will get coaching appropriate for your level at this point.

Housing will be similar to this past weekend. Camping at Mt Itasca, staying in the waxroom, or on your own. The more who stay at the venue, the more fun it is for all!!

The camp is designed primarily for Boys/Girls; Youth and Juniors. Ages 14 though 21. For those 12 or 13 yr olds who are fairly mature, you should talk to Vlad or me about whether the camp is for you. You would need to have a parent with you.

Please let me know, along with Vlad, if you plan to attend.

As to the followup camp in Elk River, I am still working on logistics for housing, camping etc. I will try to get out an invitation in a couple of weeks. At this point I would like to limit that to 10 participants due to the size of the range, and will favor younger athletes. If we don’t fill with those, we can accommodate some seniors and masters via a waiting list. Hope that works.

If the demand is really high [over 10] we will rethink the format and have two groups doing alternate activities..roller ski focus and shooting/combo focus, switching back and forth.

Again, Enjoy the Journey!

2019 May Biathlon Camp Recap

I want to thank everyone for their cooperation regarding working around the weather. Vlad and I talked a bit after the camp and agreed we actually got everything accomplished we had wanted to do—so thanks to all of you guys..it went well!! Really hope you all had fun!! Now…..keep working on those skills you were introduced to!!

Attached is the rest of the summer/Fall schedule. As soon as I know what the late Fall/ Winter schedule looks like it will be posted on this site.

When it looks tentatively like you will be attending either of the June camps, please let me know. It really helps for our early planning.

Enjoy the Journey!
