Biathlon Saskatchewan’s major sponsor, Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation, will be hosting a FISH FRY on January 25 at the Moose Jaw Wildlife Federation building. All proceeds from this meal will be donated to Biathlon Saskatchewan. This is a huge opportunity for our organization as this fundraiser has raised upwards of $6000 in the past. It is important that our athletes and families have a presence at this event so that the Wildlife Federation will continue to support us in this manor in the future.
There will be two seatings, one at 5:30 and one at 7:00, with 100 tickets sold at each seating. Athletes will be needed at both seatings to clear tables, help serve, help clean up afterwards and interact with guests. There will be a job for everyone!
The fish dinner is delicious and worth the drive. The QVN race is scheduled for Jan. 25 and 26, so many of you should be in the neighbourhood anyway! Please support our sponsor at this event!
I will be emailing club presidents with information on how to distribute tickets... tickets can be pre-purchased and picked up at the door.
Thanks in advance for your support!
Regina Biathlete, Logan Pletz skate-skied and shot his way onto the Canadian National Youth Team (U18) at trials races held recently in Quebec. A gold medal in the 7.5 km sprint and a silver in the 12.5 km pursuit helped Pletz to secure one of four coveted spots and earned him the chance to represent Canada at the Youth World Biathlon Championships held January 26 - February 3 in Orsblie, Slovakia.

The range and trail conditions at the Regina Wildlife Federation remain satisfactory for our weekly group training; however, we decided that the extra quality and depth of snow needed to support 2 days of racing is just not good enough. We need at least 1 full inch of hard pack on the icy base to turn these conditions around, to allow for safety of hill climbs and connections to White Butte Park. The weather forecast does not indicate any chance of that, so we are moving our race to Blue Mountain. Sorry of the short notice.
Discussions with Doug: (Maximize flexibility and fun.) Race formats TBA.
Saturday - zero at 12:00 - race at 1:00 ski practice camp after.
Sunday - zero early morning (9:00), finish near noon. Wiener roast lunch.
$15 for one day - $25 for 2 days.
This race is intended to be FUN and a challenging learning experience for our novices up to HP - of all ages. Those without any biathlon experience are welcome to start on these days.
