The fall New York Biathlon meeting to plan the upcoming 2011/12 racing season will take place on September 25th at the College of Technology campus in Utica. This year there will be changes to the biathlon schedule. The biggest change will be that the Empire State Games have been moved from the end of February, i.e., the last weekend of President’s week, to the first weekend of February. The dates as we know them at this time will be February 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th. With this change the qualifying rules will also have to change. The meeting on the 25th will address what qualifying rules will apply for the ESGs and also for the end of year New York State Championships.
Other topics for the upcoming meeting will be the development of a racing schedule for the season, a discussion of Junior Development activities and possible revisions to the guidelines for NYB. If you have suggestions for the above mentioned or have questions that should be brought before the biathlon committee feel free to email them to me, firstname.lastname@example.org or come to the meeting to voice your opinion.
