   Now that we've all bid farewell to 2018 it's time to turn our minds 
to racing once again.  Our first Sprint-Pursuit weekend of the season is 
coming up on January 12 & 13 and you can choose a one-day race on either 
day or go for the full weekend experience by signing up for both 
events.  The Sprint is a two shooting bout (P-S), three ski leg race 
with racers starting at set intervals. Sunday's Pursuit rewards better 
shooting across four shooting bouts (P-P-S-S) and five ski laps (U13 
youth will race 2 shooting / 3 ski legs again) with the results from the 
Sprint seeding the start order (and Sunday-only racers beginning after 
the Sprint finishers).

Course details will be sent out early next week, but for those wishing 
to get a jump on signing up, a link to registration for the event is 
available at http://coloradobiathlon.org/schedule.html .  *All* racers, 
including youth under 12, must pre-register by 5PM the day before each 
race (that is, Friday night for the Sprint and Saturday night for the 
Pursuit).  As you're registering, if you'd like to race a shorter (have 
more fun) or longer (more nordic-y enjoyment) course than your normal 
division (listed at the end of this email), just shoot me an email after 
you register and I'll get you into the distance you desire.

Finally, as is true with all of our events, we need volunteers to help 
our race weekend run smoothly.  We're currently in need of help with 
timing, registration, scoring, and general race day setup stuff. If 
you're able to assist, or have family or friends who would like to 
volunteer (no experience needed!), please also drop me an email.

And finally, finally, a reminder that the range will be closed on 
Saturday afternoon for the Red book clinic and Sunday morning for a camp 
with Maddie.  If you're planning to shoot this weekend you'll need to do 
so before/after the clinics.

See you at the range,
