WHAT: Two races are planned, both Pursuit Format with 10 sec interval starts based on estimated ski speeds. Depending on numbers, we will likely combine the two and run continuous.

WHO: Any athlete who has been taught biathlon safety and who has shot on their home range is eligible to participate. All will zero at 10:00 am. All participants will use their own slings/cuffs unless they provide a rest for the rifle. Target size/shooting position for Younger B/G will be adjusted according to their ability.
WEATHER: Current conditions are good at the range. We received 3” new snow yesterday on top of 3” earlier last week. We will groom on Wed and I will update after that. Prior to the last 3” snowfall we had good coverage. I expect to be able to recommend good skis.
SIGNUP AND LUNCH: Please let Bill Meyer know by Wed eve if you plan to attend so I can adjust the schedule if need be. A lunch will be provided at Meyer’s after the races. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU PLAN TO JOIN US FOR LUNCH.

Here are some pics that turned out okay. Unfortunately I did not get

women St Scholastica – Kelsey Dickinson
The Sun was shining at Mt Itasca this morning, and the temps were in the 20’s….. but dropping. AND the wind was blowing across the range at 15-20 mph with gusts up into the 30’s. Shooting today was rough for most. A 40 grain 0.22 Long Rifle bullet at 50 meters will be blown sideways about 3” in that wind..and the target is only about 1 3/4” in diameter in prone. In standing—the wind simply blows the rifle back and forth–
In the Women’s 7.5 km Sprint, Maddie Phaneuf of USBA again dominated, missing 0 in prone and 3 in standing to finish in 23:34. She was followed closely by Chloe Levins, a 19 yr old skiing for USBA who also missed 3 and finished 16.5 sec behind. In 3rd was Kelsy Dickenson, St Scholastica, missing 2 shots, and finishing 45.4 sec back.
In the Men’s 10 km event, local excitement prevailed. Vasek Cervenka, Mt Itasca Biathlon, was the only Man to clean in prone—and with that adrenaline boost, he skied very strongly; and even missing 2 in standing, he finished 1st in 25:42. Following closely behind, past MN State Champion from Esko, Raleigh Goessling missed 1 each in prone and standing—to finish 27.9 sec back. He was followed in 3rd by previous winner Alexander Howe, skiing for Craftsbury in VT, missing 5 shots and finishing 58.2 sec behind.
The USBA International Competition Committee will now go over the results. The Trials are based on each athlete’s best 2 of the 4 races on a percent back basis…The committee will then make a recommendation as to who will make the IBU Cup Team.
The next races in MN are coming right up next week. While the temperatures are forecast to drop quickly, Mt Itasca will host the US Team Trials for Youth and Juniors for the team that will compete at the YJr World Championships in Estonia in Feb. Races will be on the 29th, 30th and 31st, with Official training on the 28th. Mt Itasca will be closed to public skiing until 1:00 each of those days.
