Registration opens in early October

Building update and planning

Footings have been excavated

Quote was $6700 for basic package but needs upgrading (higher R-value walls and floor, needs better fire resistance on skin) so have adjusted (now $6900). Have retained journeyman carpenter to assist with building and coordinate project (all within approved budget). Will need lots of volunteers to assist with construction. Aiming for end of October for lockup. Cathy showed basic design. 15 ft x 20 ft, includes storage room, windows to allow views of range, penalty loops, biathlon stadium, etc. Need to find solution for heating without electricity.

Coaching Courses

PAL – set to run soon

Biathlon Gold – will run course this fall – November 23/24 but hoping to change date to earlier in November

IC1/IC2 – instructor moving to Ottawa, too costly to bring in someone from outside BC

Budget Update

Cathy provided update, still on track. Rifles purchased, ammo purchased, building being purchased.

Website and Communications

Website discussion – notes about privacy (no last names are used on website information, no information on birth year, pictures only posted if we have permission, etc).

Website Resources – Policies – reminder to make sure to read the policies, plus print, sign and submit the Athlete and Parent/Guardian Agreement and the Athlete Safety Agreement

BiBC Membership – reminder that this is required for anyone participating in biathlon and for anyone who assists at the range.

Meeting adjourned at 7:15 pm.
