The Biathlon Season is in full swing and before you know it, the Biathlon BC Championships race weekend will be here!  This fast paced, action packed event takes place on Saturday and Sunday, March 3 and 4th.  You won’t want to miss it and one of the best ways to see the race is to be part of it.  The good news is that you can be part of the action by volunteering.   We have all sorts of volunteer positions available on both days, so we’d love to have you sign up to help.  Even if you’ve never experienced a biathlon race before, we have volunteer positions that will suit you, and we’ll provide all the training you will need.  So please sign up and join in the fun – we’d love to have you involved!

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.

Classified are available

We’ve added a “classified” section to our website so you can find used equipment to buy or you can place an ad there yourself.  It is quick and easy to use and hopefully will help biathlon and nordic teams move gear to those who need it.

The section is easily found as one of the menu selections on the home page.

Work Camp Done!

Message from Murray:

Here is our beautiful range in the sun today! Thanks to all who pitched in this weekend. Today, lines and spools were replaced and spare bullet catcher fronts were painted. All targets were painted and the outhouses have two coats of stain on them. Way to go! We are in good shape for the coming season. With freshly painted targets I am hoping for lots of clean shooting as my early Christmas wish for all of our Biathletes…including me.:)

Fall Work Camp Weekend

It is that time of year again – we need to get the range ready for the season before the snow arrives.  So please sign up for a task (or add your own!) and come out this weekend to pitch in!
