Last Range Practice

We held our last range practice for the season last night for Advanced and Development programs.  We’ll still be skiing as long as we have decent snow, but now is the time to get your rifles serviced and putting them aside for a while.  Watch our Calendar for updates for upcoming practices.

Thanks to all our great coaches, wax techs, parents and volunteers for a wonderful season!

Final Day at Nationals

Finally, a day when the temperatures were a bit warmer!  Team BC came away with plenty of medals in the Team Relay event, where the top three finishing teams from each province take the podium.

Danica raced up two categories to join BC 2 in the Junior Men/Women category, and finished in 7th place overall.  Well done Danica!

Natalie raced in the middle leg of BC 1 in the Senior Boy/Girl category, and her team was the third province across the finish line to take the Bronze Medal!  Fantastic result!

Colton lead things off for BC 2 in the Senior Boy/Girl category in the mass start with a solid performance, and handed things off just behind BC 1, but ultimately his team finished well down the order.  Way to go Colton!

Thanks to all Team BC coaches (especially our own Coach Chris), wax techs, support crew and parents who made the entire week such a rewarding experience for all the BC athletes.  Congratulations to Telemark athletes Jasper, Colton, Natalie and Danica for a fantastic finish to a superb season.
