Congratulations to Lucas Smith and Eveline Juce in their strong performances at the NorAm/Calforex Cup races in Canmore this past weekend! Lucas took first-place finishes in the Senior Boys category, both on Saturday and Sunday. Eveline had a Top Ten finish on Sunday’s race, competing for the Camrose Vikings of University of Alberta Augustana Campus in the Youth Women category.
Congratulations also goes out to recent Manitoba biathlete, Amelia Kovachik, for putting out a solid performance in the Youth Women category.

Congratulations to our “in training” group of Competition 1 coaches who completed the on-land portion of the program this last weekend!
We’ll be having a work party this upcoming weekend to finish cutting and raking the grass around the start line and penalty loop. It is time to get ready for when the snow comes, so we will need willing volunteers to bring weed wackers (gas), rakes, work gloves, and rubber boots.
Hopefully, we can get many hands out there!
