Club Rifles Due to be Turned In

Hi Everyone,

Please note if you have a MN Biathlon rifle or one belonging to a coach, they are due to be turned in to the coaches asap.

Vlad in Grand Rapids
Steve or Eric in Duluth
Jeff in Alexandria
Julie in Elk River
Bill in Nisswa.

Thanks for getting this done. Be sure the rifle is spotless and call our attention to any problems with it.

Also, please let me know if you would like to lease a rifle again next year. We are tentatively short of rifles looking ahead, and will be applying some additional criteria to leases next season.

Coaches, please take the time to clean the rifles again, and then let me know when you have all collected and what you have in hand. If we need replacement parts for worn items, let me know. Damaged parts should be replaced by the athlete.

Also please find attached the tentative Spring/Summer/Fall schedule for this coming training year starting on April 15th. If you have not yet received a training plan from me, and want one, please let me know.

Thanks, and Look forward to the next year’s Journey!
Bill Meyer, Coach
