Biathlon is a winter sport that combines cross-country skiing and rifle shooting. It is treated as a race where the contestant with the shortest total time wins. Depending on the competition, missed shots result in extra distance or time being added to the contestant's total." For more complete (general) information about Biathlon races, visit Wikipedia at http://www.pemi.org/
At the Pemi club we host several Biathlon events per year. The dates and times are listed on our calendar at http://www.pemi.org/calendar
In the summer the athletic part can be biking or running. In the winter it may be snowshoeing or skiing.
Newcomers, volunteers, and event fans are welcome.
We hold two races at each event. Match fees are as follows: $15 for one race or $25 for two races if you bring your own rifle and your own ammo. $20 if you are using a club rifle and/or club ammo, and $30 for two races. DO NOT MAIL ANY MATCH FEES AND PAPERWORK – to expedite your sign-in, you may print out your paperwork and bring it with you. This helps you save time at sign-in. Match fees are subject to review and change during the season. Changes will be published as necessary and will be included in match notices as necessary.
Safety briefing and sight-in will follow sign-in. All participants are required to attend the safety briefing, and it is also highly recommended for all spectators. During sight-in any new-to-shooting and new-to-biathlon competitors will be trained. Coaching is available. Age 17 and under must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian."
