> Greetings comrade biathletes!
> While I lack Dean's ebullience, I share his enthusiasm and desire to have
> you all join me for a fun-filled day of biathloning on Saturday.
> The race format is single-mixed relay, with the CBC twist that you may
> select your relay partner as you wish. In international competition, the
> "mixed" refers to having one male and one female member on each team. This
> is not necessary for Saturday.
> First racer starts in a mass start and skis 1.5km, then shoots prone, does
> penalty loops
> The same racer skis another 1.5km and shoots standing, does penalty loops,
> then tags. So only 2 course loops skied.
> Second racer does the same, then tags first racer.
> First racer repeats the two course loops and two shooting bouts, then tags
> second racer.
> Second racer repeats the two course loops and two shooting bouts and skis
> one final course loop.
> To summarize, first racer skis four course loops and second racer skis
> Kids under 13 and novices may ski 1km loops and may team with an adult if
> they wish.
> All .22 racers have 8 shots to hit 5 targets in each bout. The first 5 may
> come from the magazine. The 3 spares must be hand-loaded. Shoot until you
> are out of bullets or out of targets, whichever comes first.
> We are delaying the start of the race by 1 hour to help alleviate overlap
> with a middle school and high school race that was relocated to Snow Mt at
> the last minute. Expect parking to be an issue and the nordic center
> building to be very full. I would recommend against trying to access the
> wax room on Saturday morning.
> So, bib pickup from 10-10:30, Zero from 10:30-11:15 and with any luck, race
> start at 11:30.
> We will be running counter-clockwise. The 1.5K course goes out Swenson to
> short Wilson, left on Wilson, returns to the range on Biathlon. The 1K
> course goes down Davis and returns to the range on Biathlon. Range approach
> and tag zone will overlap so please use awareness in that area.
> It would be absolutely fantastic to run a single wave so that people
> heading home on I-70 can escape before traffic becomes impossible. We will
> need plenty of volunteers to make that happen. Volunteers ski for free for
> the day, as well. Please let me know if you or a friend/family member can
> join us for a couple of hours of fun and frolic on the range. No experience
> necessary and there may be chocolate (if I can remember).
> Let me know with whom you would like to race! I already have one mixed
> gender team and one parent/child team. Notify me by email by close of
> registration (5pm Friday).
> Should be a good time!
