Conditions are good at Blackhawk considering there is no natural snow in southern WI. Our Snow makers did a great job getting the course and range ready. We will have a 1.0 and 1.3K loop for the races. The entire course has 1′ to 3′ of snow base and will ski fast. Race day temps are expected to be in the mid 20’s to upper 30’s degrees.
Registration closes on Wednesday evening 1/11/23 at midnight. Looking forward to seeing a good turnout. Please plan to help with races as we need volunteers to make the races a success. Currently we have over 40 racers registered for each day.
Looking forward to great races this weekend
For those not attending the Blackhawk events, on Sunday the 15th, the MN Guard will be hosting an event at Camp Ripley. If you wish to attend, please contact me, Bill Meyer, directly by noon tomorrow- [Thursday]!!
I have 8 civilians registered and the Guard is expecting 8-10.
Men 10 km
9:30 meeting at F Range [need to stop at the gate on the way onto the base, then need to stop at Range control and sign out a pass—then watch your speed on the way to F Range!!]
In addition the range/trails will be open from 1:00-3:00 for open training after the race. Bring your own lunch!!
We do need to turn in names by Thursday pm for both the start list and to provide them to gate security!!
Hope you can do some Biathlon this coming weekend!!
