We escaped threatening rain and wet terrain to complete a great day of Biathlon training for a host of new young athletes from Winnipeg’s Assiniboine Park Jackrabbits! Thanks to all the parents and coaches from that club that helped us put it all together. We also held a high performance camp for our advanced group of athletes and we definitely put them through the paces. Again as ritual would have it, Brian Walters laid out the potluck meals for a hearty post camp meal. Thanks to Mark, Lin-P’ing and Doug for coaching, Tom for spending the day repairing much of the facilities equipment. And thanks to Katherine Styrchak for taking these photos, capturing the fun.
This last weekend BAM hosted a day training clinic for Kenora Nordic at Falcon Lake and it was very well attended. Despite the intermittent rain, the athletes in the Fundamental and early Developmental stages plus a number of athletes in the Masters program trained hard. We look forward to implementing more of these programs throughout the summer. Thanks to Mark, Scott, Tim and Doug for all their efforts!
Attached is the notice of our upcoming Annual General Meeting. The meeting will take place in Room B at Sport Manitoba.
We have a number of openings for positions on the board and they are for a two year period (June 2019- June 2021). Please contact Brian Walters (email@example.com) if you are interested in being a Member of the board. Thank you.
