Interested in Biathlon...Try This on Sunday, March 21
An introduction novice biathlon event will be held on Sunday, March 21 starting at 9 AM at the Snowflake biathlon range. Registration will be from 8 to 8:45 in the lower level of the Snowflake chalet. If there is snow, we will have a shooting clinic and safety briefing from 9 to 9:45 and a novice race over a 1.6 km course with two shooting bouts in prone position. So, participants will ski the 1.6 km loop three times. If there is not sufficient snow, we will have mainly a shooting-marksmanship event with short range loops. The cost is $20.
Participants will be given ammunition and the use of rifles. We will have air rifles set up for those who would also like to try shooting in the standing position.
High School / Junior High skiers and adults are welcome.
