Any Biathlon Competitors Out There?

XC skiing and shooting? Not some other two sport combo.

I'm probably the only one here, but I thought I'd give it a shot.

I guess the crickets are still chirping. The season is just around the corner here. Nobody?

I looked again the only biathlon team in Ohio is the National Guard.
While I would love to do the events together, I'm old and fat and we don't get enough snow. I need new xc boots, by the time I got everything together last year the snow was gone.I hope to get out this year. Good Luck in your events.

Damn, I thought I had a cohort for a second. There are only about 5 or 6 events a year within reasonable driving distance for me, so it's tough to make a major investment.

My old boots were falling apart too, although my skis were still in good shape. I just picked up new Alpina boots tonight and had to have new bindings mounted, because of the different system.

Our local ski hill opens tomorrow, so I'm gonna go out and get some skate practice around the bunny hill area. I'm old, not too fat and have ski race experience, but never while carrying a rifle.

First race of the season is Sunday. Been getting some snow time at the resort, even though there is none on the ground here. The biathlon venue makes snow.

Anybody else yet?
