Guard Biathlon Camp 26-28 AUG 2022

Here is the schedule for the Guard Biathlon Camp at Camp Ripley, MN on the above dates.

From our perspective, I think the Sat/Sunday training/races are the most important. However, if someone wants to come on Friday pm for the Combo training at 2:00 pm, I can come down and coach. 

Please let me know if you plan to attend, and if so, which days.

We do need to submit names and numbers to Derek before the camp, so please respond to me by Wed, 24 AUG. 

Bill Meyer, Coach

Results from Saturday, Aug 6, 2022 Sprint at Summer Nationals in VT

The ‘open class’ is both Seniors and Juniors combined together. Then the Juniors are also on a separate class result. I think both age classes carried rifles on the entire course while the Youth and younger did a shorter course plus some ‘rifle loops’.  

There are a number of Canadian biathletes competing also—and they often come down with really fast roller skis..almost rollerblade fast.

Mass Start and Pursuits tomorrow!! The link to the start times is posted on the main sheet of the same webpage.
