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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in being a Member of the board. Thank you.

To all the athletes who went to Canada Winter Games, Congratulations on a job well done! Follow this link to view a Facebook shoutout to the athletes with pictures.
The Games have been in full swing this last week for Biathlon and Manitoba’s team has been putting out solid results all around! We have positioned ourselves nicely in all categories and our athletes have pushed themselves to great lengths. Tomorrow will cap the races with the Individual race, ending a gruelling, but truly rewarding week! We are proud of the athletes for giving it their all, the coaches for keeping the athletes on target and well prepared, the support personnel for keeping the logistics machinery running smooth and our essential wax technician for professional insight and speed on the skis!
