NEW! Official Results – MB Provincials (Sun, Feb27th)

Another great day of racing at Falcon Lake Range!  The field of 38 athletes produced some great competition and awesome results.  Congratulations to all who participated.  Once again, thanks to all the volunteers that make these events happen.  As the size of the events grow, so do the requirements for officials etc.  It is a pleasant problem to deal with though!  Once again, we had some more new out of towners – welcome to the gang from Portage La Prairie!  We are also pleased to have racers from Thunder Bay, Kenora and Dryden.  Of course, there is the core contingent from the Winnipeg area.  Overall a great sign that Biathlon is growing in Central Canada!!!

MB Cup #3 is in the books!

Another great weekend of skiing and shooting happened at Falcon Lake this past Sunday, where 36 athletes competed in the third provincial cup race of the season.  Approximately half of that number were 12 or younger!  A great thing for the future of biathlon in Manitoba!  Congratulations to all athletes and coaches, plus a HUGE thanks to all the volunteers that make these races possible.

Saturday was a busy day at the Falcon Range as well, as the cadet program held their provincial races…  thanks to the organizers for having the range prepared and all ready to go for Sunday – it was a great help and much appreciated.

As usual, if you have pictures that could be posted on the BAM site, please email to kschmidt526@gmail.com

Results will be posted on this site soon!
