To the Ladies of Minnesota Biathlon,
Thank you for the signed picture from your trip to Madison. It was a pleasure to host you at Blackhawk Biathlon. I was very fortunate to be the “Random Guy” skiing through when you graciously asked me to be in your photo. Best of luck to those of you competing at Nationals and hope to see you again next season.
