Tree Planting News

Hi Everyone,

The last weekend in May and this past weekend, our Team participated in tree planting on cut lines near to our very own Telemark Nordic Club. Thanks to Steve Fenning, Iva and Thomas Rozek, Daniel Rozek, Erik Rozek and Alex Rozek for participating and for leading the way, getting some fresh air and for making a difference in our local ecosystem. I can confirm that the weather was quite nice and the views spectacular with the rain holding off and a nice breeze to keep the mozzies down.  More importantly, together we raised several hundred dollars for Telemark and Biathlon programs. As an added bonus we got to interact with the folks from the XC race team who were out in force.  The workers from Ntityix Resources LP (our local First Nations forester)  who were managing the tree planters were very patient and used several opportunities to educate participants – so thanks a ton to Ntiyix Resources for donating time and resources!

Please comment on this fundraising event. If you have any questions about the tree planting experience contact Murray  250-808-4511.

It’s that time of year again – time to put a few trees in the ground and raise some funds for Telemark Biathlon!

If you can come out and help, please sign up for tree planting shifts this weekend (Sat and Sunday May 26/27th). You will be giving back to your team (much needed fundraising dollars) and to your planet. The experience also looks good on a job resume!

Click here to sign up.

Directions to the Jack Pine Road tree-planting block to follow (close to Telemark). No experience necessary and you will be given instructions at the site.  It is a fun way to spend a morning or afternoon doing something quite different from the usual weekend chores.

Thank you Volunteers!

I want to send out an absolutely enormous thank you to everyone. I heard so many comments from the athletes and their support crews about how great the race was. It’s so much work to put these events on and I’m sure you’re all exhausted but you all did an amazing job and it wouldn’t have been a success without you all. I just want you to know that the Telemark Community appreciates all your efforts and the athletes appreciate it is well. Thank you again, you are all amazing: from making soups to setting up course to range, timing and absolutely everything.
Thank you,

Michelle Banser
Chairperson, Telemark Biathlon Committee

Our amazing volunteers made for a fantastic weekend

Telemark’s Julia Ransom in the Top 10

Julia Ransom has launched herself into a top 10 finish in Sweden at the season opening World Cup race weekend in the Individual competition, finishing 9th overall. Julia had perfect shooting with 4 clean rounds.  7 athletes in the top 10 shot clean as competition was fierce at the top of the order. Way to go Julia!

Julia says “I was mainly excited just to get the season started and to be racing again, but finishing in the top 10 was the icing on the cake!”

This is Julia’s first top 10 finish in the World Cup circuit.  What a great way to kick off the season!  Let’s hope there are lots more top 10s to come.

Julia shot clean in all four rounds
