Wisconsin Cup #6

Interested in trying a Biathlon event out of state? Coming up on the 17th of Feb is Wisconsin Cup #6 to be held just north of Green Bay WI. One family has already talked to me about attending..Hanne Guthrie is now a local over that way, and I am sure would love to see some MN faces to race against.

Let me know if you are interested, and I might even pack an overnight bag.

We got about 10” more snow last night..packing the range again today.

Enjoy the Winter! And 3 more MN Cup races coming up on Saturdays starting on March 3rd!
