Results from Saturday, Aug 6, 2022 Sprint at Summer Nationals in VT

https://www.eabiathlon.org/race-results

The ‘open class’ is both Seniors and Juniors combined together. Then the Juniors are also on a separate class result. I think both age classes carried rifles on the entire course while the Youth and younger did a shorter course plus some ‘rifle loops’.  

There are a number of Canadian biathletes competing also—and they often come down with really fast roller skis..almost rollerblade fast.

Mass Start and Pursuits tomorrow!! The link to the start times is posted on the main sheet of the same webpage.

Bosek Biathlon Day Camp – July 9, 2022

Saturday, July 9th I will be hosting a day camp at my house.

We will have two groups of four.  When one group is shooting, the other group will be roller skiing.  We will switch after lunch.

Eight people will be the max and this camp will be geared towards the more experienced biathlete.  The shooting group will focus on shooting/shooting education.

We will start at 9:30 and finish up around 4:00.

The camp is free, but please bring your own ammo.

Lunch will be provided.

Let me know if you are interested at pro8diver@gmail.com.

I will be at the race on Sunday, June 26th, if you have any questions.

Also, if there is bad weather on Saturday, we can have the camp on Sunday, July 10th.

MN Biathlon membership forms

Good Afternoon–

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!
