Siena Ellingson out shot Maeve Lindsay for the title today—Maeve decided at the last moment yesterday to jump back in today! Ryker Bosek outshot most of his near competitors to move into 8th place from a 12th place start!
Beautiful Northern MN day with fresh snow, midteen temps, sunshine and only a light wind!!

We just got word today that the MN National Guard will allow civilians to participate in the Guard Champs starting on Sunday this coming week at Camp Ripley. Please let me know if you plan to attend Bill Meyer, Coach MNBiathlon
I just received confirmation that spectators are allowed and civilian athletes are again allowed to race with a completed COVID screening and liability waiver (both attached). If any of your athletes plan to attend, please send myself and SFC Pam Marshik (CC Line) a list of the race/date and names so they can be added to the start list. We have over 120 athletes (of all skill levels) registered this year so it will be a large competition. Please let your athletes know they must stop in at Range Control and get a vehicle pass before going down range. Also, ensure they have a face covering.
Here is the schedule: Saturday, 12 FEB Official Training Sunday, 13 FEB Sprint Race Monday, 14 FEB Pursuit Race Wednesday, 16 FEB Relay Race Thursday, 17 FEB Patrol Race
Races are scheduled to begin at 10:00am with zero at 9:00. If any of your athletes want to participate in the team races, we can probably find them a composite team to join.
