Rescheduled to Feb 14th – Biathlon Games – Nisswa, MN

Hi All–
We have 1/4″ of wet ice in the driveway right now–and it is still spitting from above–forecast for tomorrow doesn’t look much better.

We will cancel out for tomorrow and try to reschedule to the 14th of February–the Sunday after the State HS meet.

Looks like we should get some snow on top later tomorrow or Monday. As soon as we do, I will regroom the range.

I will set up a training plan and get it out shortly. If the weather clears enough to groom in the am, we might have a local  practice tomorrow at 1:00.

What: The Nisswa Games Biathlon Meet. This is a series of contests oriented to more shooting than normal–that you will not find in the IBU Rules. Each team earns points depending on how they place in each event. Overall biathlon skills are emphasized.

Depending on numbers interested, teams of 2 or 3 will be handpicked from the entrants to be as equal as possible. Sometimes one lucky sole gets to do both positions.

The games are:

  • Russian/AK –Into position–hand load one shot–tag off- goal is to clean the target asap
  • Short leg relay–do a lap, relay rounds, penalty loops, tag off–each does one prone+one standing alternating..
  • Patrol race– group sprint race-team all needs to finish at same time.

The longest skiing will be the last event with a 1km loop x 3

Novices are welcome–ideally you should bring your own rifle..or contact me ahead to be sure I have you covered..

Where: Nisswa Range–see attached map

When: 1:00 zero, Sunday the 24th of January, 2010

Cost: None      Awards: minimal    Prizes: None     Fun: That is the whole goal!!
