Empire State Games are back on in all of their glory!

The Empire State Games have been reinstated with private sponsorship. They are remaining in Lake Placid on the last weekend in Febrary, 2/25; 2/26/; and 2/27. Those that qualify for the Empire State Games will race on Friday, February 25th at 1 p.m. in the afternoon. This will be a sprint race with distances varying from 6 km. to 10 km. The second race will be an individual relay running at 1 p.m. on Saturday, 2/26. The race will be run as a relay, but with no teams. Each person will ski for themselves and have individual results.
We all hope that there will be a seamless transition from Parks and Recreation running the races to the private sponsors that ORDA found. We will know soon!

Polar Bear Winter Schedule is set!

The Polar Bear Biathlon schedule is set for two races this year. If you are interested in registering for either of the races you can sign up for them or view the race details by going to
The two dates are January 1, 2011 and February 6, 2011. Both races are sprint format and will have two shooting stops. There will be a penalty zone for both races. As in past years we will have all USBA classes plus a novice class for those that want to see what it is all about. I hope that you will come and join us at one or both of our races! See you on the range!
