Our primary round of rifle distribution is now done. Basically if you have a MN Biathlon rifle—your lease fee is due NOW!! Andof course, your MN Biathlon Membership. Please get this in to me as quickly as possible!!! The forms are attached once again!!
Coming right up starting on Saturday are the first MN Biathlon Daycamps of the new training year!! We still have two openings [3 on Saturday] if you would still like to sign up with Lynda Bouley firstname.lastname@example.org
For those needing a rifle fit—please try to arrive early—even by 8:00 would be good!!
The tentative schedule is attached. We are expecting some rain, but the time and amount forecast keeps changing. In any case, bring a change of clothes! [maybe two?]
This Invitation has been in the hands of our newcomers for a week to allow the majority of them a first chance to sign up. We have 8 so far, and will give precedence for up to 2 more to fill in one of the two groups we are expecting. Therefore at this point we have a total remaining of 12 openings—so if you wish to attend, be sure to get your name in to Lynda Bouley asap!!
There is scheduled a followup camp at Mt Itasca two weeks after the Elk River event. More information will be forthcoming on that soon.
In addition to the daycamps for Youth and Juniors, on Saturday evening we will have a 2 hr Level One Officials class at a nearby location. This class is sanctioned by USBA and is the first level for Officials at any Regional or National events. I will be conducting that class—so please let me know if you would like to attend. email@example.com
Hope to see you there!! Please contact Lynda or me if you have any questions!! Bill Meyer, Coach
We have had good news from the groomers at Woodland Trails! They managed to break up the crust and will be doing a lot more on Saturday as the weather warms up. We will have skiable conditions, with the final decision on courses to be made on Saturday. The weather forecasts look really good!!
The race will be a 7.5km Relay Format with 15-sec interval starts, hopefully on an exact 2.5 km course. Age classes <13 will do a 4.5km event.
Please jump in and join us for the last race of the winter season in the Twin Cities area—and stick around and help with the Novice event following right behind the race and get the entry fee reduced to zero!! We have 24 or 25 Novices signed up—and are looking forward to greeting some new faces, encouraging newcomers to try our great sport, and generating the continuance of our MN Biathlon growth!!
We are approaching 20 signups for the experienced race event—and with the MN State Meet completed today—we should pick up a number of new entries before tomorrow evening!
