UPDATE: Unfortunately there is a big snowstorm with up to 10” snow and with high winds forecast for the Duluth area on Fri night into Saturday night. Looking at driving and racing in those conditions, a decision has been made to delay the race at Snowflake until Sunday with a later start, zeroing at 11:00. Hopefully this works for you. If you have already checked in with me and will be there Sunday, no problem, but if you can’t make it Sunday, please let me know! 

Snowflake has committed to grooming early on Sunday to get ready for the biathlon race. Due to the depth of snow at Snowflake, and the soft edges, Snowflake has asked that all participants and spectators either ski out to the range or use snowshoes on the edges of the trails [not in the tracks, if set] Walking on the edge will not work!!

I just received confirmation that spectators are allowed and civilian athletes are again allowed to race with a completed COVID screening and liability waiver (both attached).  If any of your athletes plan to attend, please send myself and SFC Pam Marshik (CC Line) a list of the race/date and names so they can be added to the start list.  We have over 120 athletes (of all skill levels) registered this year so it will be a large competition. Please let your athletes know they must stop in at Range Control and get a vehicle pass before going down range.  Also, ensure they have a face covering.

Here is the schedule:
Saturday, 12 FEB Official Training
Sunday, 13 FEB Sprint Race
Monday, 14 FEB Pursuit Race
Wednesday, 16 FEB Relay Race
Thursday, 17 FEB Patrol Race

Races are scheduled to begin at 10:00am with zero at 9:00.  If any of your athletes want to participate in the team races, we can probably find them a composite team to join.
