We are sorry to say that Mother Nature has wiped out both of our biathlons this season. The decision was made on Wednesday, January 25th, that there was not enough snow in the shooting area of the range as well as no snow to push across the road to host a race. The penalty area was icy and very thin as well.
Lay on adequate seating for people to rest and relax when they are not walking, dancing or mingling. If you are planning entertainment, make sure your seats are positioned so that people can watch it without having to move around too much. Place seats under cover in case it rains if possible and have waterproof cushions or covers in case of rain, look at seating options at https://tiered-seating.uk/. Have an indoor space with seating too, so that people can move and get warm if they find the outdoor temperatures too cold.
At this point in time the Empire State Winter Games for biathlon are in question for next weekend. The cross country events for next weekend have been moved to the ski jump area. They will make snow to cover a 1.5 to 2.o km course. The final decision will be made on Wednesday, February 1st, as to whether the cross country races will definitely be held. More as we learn what is happening
Hopefully you will join us in our Summer Biathlon events beginning in June! See you then!
