On-snow Biathlon training gets underway in Kenora

After approximately thirty visits to the range at the Lake of The Woods Gun Club since August for shooting practice we are now able to ski and shoot. I skied 12km with my rifle today on freshly groomed trails. Thanks to Fero metalcraft’s James and Jason for designing and building the new roller/skate groomer, Chris at C&C services for getting the vehicle ready and transport services and to the Lake of The Woods Gun Club’s Dwayne Cyr for making our access to the facility easier this year.

Eight weeks today I have my first race at World Masters and with access to a great shooting facility feel well prepared from a shooting perspective. Now comes the hundreds of kilometers of skiing to build on snow comfort and fitness to make the skiing better than ever. Katy and Karly Lockhart continue to train hard pursuing positions on Team Manitoba for the Canada Winter Games in Prince George, BC. We have also  had a variety of our club members up to the range for shooting practice in the fall and can now combine the two aspects of our sport in their training, and introduction to the sport.
