Biathlon Try It Out Day – Cancelled Due to Lack of Snow
Ever watched a biathlon competition on TV or out at Hallis Lake and wondered what it is really like to ski as hard as you can and then lie down and shoot at targets the size of a looney?
If you are interested in finding out, come on over to the Biathlon Range at Hallis Lake on Saturday April 6 from 10:30 AM till 1 PM. You will need your ski equipment (preferably freestyle/ skate but classic will work too), ski clothing, determination and a sense of humour.
The CSTC Biathlon Team will supply the rifles, ammunition, safety instruction and coaching.
We currently have ages from Midgets (8-10 yrs) to Masters (35 yrs +) training and competing in local and provincial level competitions (and one competing internationally) and we have room for more.
An introduction to backcountry touring/racing by bicycle. What is is and how to get started.
This is intended to encourage the development of a bikepacking community in the North Cariboo and will be followed up with an introductory overnighter when weather permits.
As a lifetime cyclist, Brian Kennelly has been bikepacking in BC and Alberta for 3 years and has completed several bike packing ‘events’: BC Epic 1000, Alberta Rockies 700, attended the Bikepacking Canada Summit twice and developed and traveled several bike packing routes in BC.
A brief slide show will be accompanied by a display and explanations of two bikepacking set-ups – trail oriented 27.5 FS and a 700 mm gravel bike. The presentation will also have Q & A’s throughout.
Admission by donation with proceeds to the Cariboo Ski Touring Club.
The CCBC sponsored fundraising campaign has ended. Thank you very much to everyone who contributed to our goal of raising sufficient funds to purchase a replacement utility snowmobile. Through your support we have been fortunate enough to locate and purchase a second hand machine in good condition that should serve our purposes well and at a much lower cost than a new machine. The funds raised will pay for it and for the alterations necessary to equip it for our tasks.
Our donations amounted to $3825 and earned matching funds through CCBC of $850 for a total of $4,675. Well done! Thanks again for your support and for the support from Cross Country BC and Cross Country Canada!
