Dear CBCers,

  As your Magnificent and Dear Leader, I am pleased to present courses for
this weekend's racing. As you will no doubt notice, these courses are a
slight departure from our usual fare. The advance of the Wilson glacier
(formerly Lake Wilson) has cut-off a critical access point to the
Just-Wilson-Heckman nexus. Not only does this require some serious
re-thinking of our standard loops, it also limits the variety we'd prefer
to offer over a two-race weekend. With the exception of the 3.3km loop, we
will be using the same loops both Saturday and Sunday. So, for the Sprint,
a three-lap, two shoot (PS) race: Senior Men and Junior Men (19-20) will
race the 3 x 3.3km; Senior Women, Junior Women (19-20) and Youth Men
(17-18) will race 3 x 2.5km; Youth Women (17-18) and all kids between 15
and 16 will race 3 x 2.0km; 13-14 year olds will race 3 x 1.5km (shooting
PP); and tots will race 3 x 1km (shooting PP). Also note that Masters
racers wanting to compete as Masters can opt for the 3 x 2.5km for Masters
Men and the 3 X 2.0 for Masters Women. There is, of course, no requirement
that Masters-aged athletes compete as such. In fact, there are few things
sweeter than witnessing the completely dispirited countenance of a young
whipper snapper as he finds himself crushed by a geezer. The choice is
yours.

  The pursuit courses will be similarly structured, mutatis mutandis. The
five lap, four shoot (PPSS) race will cover: 5 x 2.5km for Senior and
Junior Men; 5 x 2.0km for Senior/Junior women and Youth Men; 5 x 1.5km for
Youth Women and 15-16 yr olds; 4 x 1.0km (shooting PPP) for 13-14 year
olds; and the tots will do another Sprint, unless the little tykes all mass
in protest and overwhelm your event staff. Again, Masters races can opt for
masters distances (Sr Women and Youth Women for men and women resp.)
Finally, I expect that will will use a fixed interval start for the pursuit
with start order determined by the previous day's Sprint result. We will
announce the pursuit start protocol once we have seen the spread of times
from the Sprint.

 Please remember that we require all adults to pre-register either by snail
mail or the webpage (see http://www.coloradobiathlon.org/schedule.html for
details). I'd also like to remind everyone that you can do one or the other
or both races. Those who show up for Sunday will simply be queued up at the
end of the start order for their category--but you must still pre-register.

I'm looking forward to seeing lots of you all for another fine weekend of
racing,
Walter, CBC President

ps, On a slightly different, less happy note: I continue to hear comments
from the Eldora staff that the range there is littered with brass. Please,
please, please clean up after you shoot. Thanks.
