Zone 2 BC Winter Games Qualifier and Regional Race

Download PDF

Our friends at Sovereign Lakes Nordic Club are hosting this year’s BCWG qualifier as well as a fun regional race.  Click here for race invitation and details.  “Zone 2” is the Thompson Okanagan region of BC.

If you are 13 or 14 as of December 31, 2017, you are the right age to compete in biathlon at the upcoming BCWG in Kamloops (February, 2018).  It’s going to be a different event for biathlon at the BCWG this season, as they do not have a normal biathlon facility… so you will get to run instead of ski, and shoot laser rifles instead of 22 rifles.  The BCWG are a fantastic opportunity for athletes to experience a multisport event – kind of like going to the Olympics, with impressive Opening and Closing Ceremonies, all sorts of athletes from all over BC attending and competing in winter sports, and of course the amazing medals.  If you are interested, please talk to your coach this weekend (Bears or Development athletes, this means you!).

The event at Sovereign will be really good – an individual race on Saturday, then an amazingly fun relay race on Sunday!  This event is intended for Bears through Masters, so check it out!

If you are able to volunteer to help at the race (either day or both) please get in touch with Laurie as soon as possible.

Biathlon BC Summer Biathlon Championships

Two of our senior athletes were competing against the best in BC this weekend in Whistler, with great results.  Colton competed in the Senior Boys category, placing 2nd in the Sprint and 3rd in the Individual.  Natalie competed in the Senior Girls category, placing 3rd in the Sprint and 4th in the Individual.  Natalie was in the hunt for a podium finish in the Individual, but a crash on her roller skis on a wet track took her out of contention – but she refused to give up and pushed hard to the finish.

Well done and congratulations to both Colton and Natalie!
