Minnesota Biathlon – Twin Cities Membership

To all –

In the last few years, we have been lax about requiring membership forms and dues for Minnesota Biathlon – Twin Cities. Membership is required to use the Elk River biathlon range. We have ongoing maintenance and supply expenses to run the range. It is time we got back to doing things “by the book”.

Attached you will find a membership form. If you want to use the Elk River biathlon range, you must be a member of MN Biathlon. In addition to range use, this also gets you required insurance.

The membership year runs from July 1 – June 30.

Please complete the form and send it back to me with your check.

Thanks!

Lou Chouinard

PS – If there are new junior biathletes who are not on this distribution list, please send me their e-mails and I will add them to our distribution lists.
