For those leasing rifles this year, I will be sending out lease forms today to those who will be on the same rifle as last year. For those who are getting onto a different rifle, I am holding off yet while we sort that out. For those who will be leasing for the first time, we need to see you at a daycamp and go through all our procedures and fit a rifle to you at that time.

Hope that helps!!

MN Biathlete participation questionnaire for 2022

If you are an athlete, please fill it out and return to me at wmeyer1041@gmail.com or mail it to me at the address on the bottom of the form. Also discuss this with your parent as they will need to agree to any lease of a rifle.

For those who are anticipating leasing a rifle again from MN Biathlon, we need to get this information in before we agree to a lease. The rifles we have are for active participants in MN Biathlon events.

If you have your own rifle, we would still like to get the information from you, but if you only would like an individualized training plan—you can just let me know. Your choice. Please do not ask for a log unless you are willing to keep it up all year.

The number of rifles we have available is limited. The factors that enter into determining who gets a lease are weighted heavily towards your planned participation as well as age, ski racing experience and past biathlon experience.

Thanks!

Recent improvements at Elk River

Over the past couple of years Twin City Biathlon, a branch of MN Biathlon, has been making numerous improvements to the range facility at Woodland Trails Park. Thanks so much to Chad and Lynda Bouley, Tara and Marcus Landrum, Dave Anderson with Elk River Parks and all the others who have pitched in. Here are some of the changes:

  • Redesigned target boxes for easier switch from paper to metal—now use a fold down front plate- the new plates were donated
  • a new fabric skirt in front of the boxes to catch lead coming off the face of the metal-thanks to Lynda
  • new target box covers—again, thanks to Lynda
  • new paddles built by Marcus to replace some that were too heavy
  • a new Target #4- thanks to Chad for receiving that and getting it installed
  • New paper targets designed by Tara who also chased the printing—we are using up the old strips first
  • new standard shooting mats—thanks to Lou Chouinard for meeting the supplier in Southern MN!
  • a new wind flag system and flags
  • new bibs designed by Tara
  • a new timing program on a spreadsheet designed by Zean Baker—will try out on Saturday!!
  • a temporary porta potty brought in by Dave Anderson and his crew
  • And for the weekend event, some generators, heat, lights and computers in the range building!!

It is amazing what volunteers can do when they put their efforts together. A lot more were involved in making this all happen!! Sampsons, Hudrliks, Brodersons and more!!

Thank you all!!
