Saturday we had our first meet of the season. Ely hosted the Timberwolf Invite at the Hidden Valley Recreation Center. The conditions were good considering the amount of snow we have gotten.
Tuesday's race has been moved to Mt. Itasca in Coleraine, MN. They have manmade snow and have been hosting national level biathlon races this past weekend. The conditions are execlent.
Parents, if you would like a start list for our races you can go to our timer's website and print one off. They are usually available late afternoon the day before the race.
