MN National Guard will allow civilians to participate in the Guard Champs this weekend – Feb 12 – 17, 2022 – RESULTS

RESULTS:

We just got word today that the MN National Guard will allow civilians to participate in the Guard Champs starting on Sunday this coming week at Camp Ripley.
Please let me know if you plan to attend
Bill Meyer, Coach
MNBiathlon

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.

Midwest Biathlon Races this coming weekend

Please consider this a reminder that you need to register for the Midwest Biathlon Races at Elk River by Friday noon—online.
https://forms.gle/Jevxmfko2BLGt6Qh6

The race info is linked here. I was at the Novice Clinic on Sunday and the trails were looking great! Thanks so much to Dave Anderson with the Elk River Park Board and his crew of volunteers!! Keep in mind the winter biathlon trails are not the same as the paved ones we use in the summer—so the flow through the range and the character of the trails is entirely different and a lot more challenging!!

The weather forecast also looks real good! Low Fri night at –4F and rising Saturday to 23F, low Saturday night 10F rising to 22F on Sunday.

We have had a lot of athletes with conflicts with the high school races, many of which have been delayed due to cold weather and pushed together. If so, and if you want to only race one of the Midwest series—feel free to do so. Just be sure to let Brian Wray and Zean Baker know along with getting your name into the system.

I have also had some questions about racing classes. Our new system will automatically figure out your age and put you in the appropriate age class per your birthday. If you wish to race up from say <15 to <17 …or down from say MM to Senior Men, please let both Brian and Zean know that so they can override the system.

We have 5 from WI signed up already—and I hope to see most of our biathletes from MN as well!! Remember, this is also a MN Cup event!!
