Message from the President

At the end of last season, the future of the club was uncertain due to the vacancy of the Nordic Director at Snow Mountain Ranch/YMCA of the Rockies, and the news that we would not have access to the 10 National Guard targets. Things looked bleak.

As it turns out, we have been very fortunate. The YMCA has shown its commitment to Biathlon by hiring a new Nordic Director (previously from Devil's Thumb) who will work with CBC to continue Biathlon events. Snow Mountain Ranch has also agreed to purchase three winter targets as in-kind sponsorship of the club's purchase of three new targets. In addition, club member Bill Hay will make a personal target purchase and allow us to use them at Snow Mountain Ranch. As the dust settles, it appears the club will have full facilities again at Snow Mountain and Frisco this season. Our sincere thanks and gratitude goes to Snow Mountain, and to Bill for helping us continue our growth!

Last October, 15 CBC members received their USBA Level 1 Officials certification. This was especially timely because the club will now be handling the entire race day organization for all of our races. It will be up to these people to carry the weight of producing races and organizing volunteers. We've arranged our schedule and are asking the Officials to sign up for the dates they're available to work. Consider it a non-racing day to begin with. It may become possible to share positions with another Official in the other race, but it'll take some coordination to get it working smoothly.

In a way as a club we've been bumped out of the nest, and need to fly on our own. We have some very capable and motivated people on the Board and in the Officials, and have developed the club gradually as we've gone along. We always need help from the body of members to volunteer for scoring, penalty lap counting and course work. Now I think we're up to the task of putting it all together just when it's needed.

Our schedule is a little smaller this year to get our sea-legs under us, and hopefully increase the size of the fields. We're also tentatively planning a two day pursuit format race at the end of the schedule. It should be a fun season!

Think Snow,
David Wells

Rifle Safety Certification Clinics

Apologies from your Newsletter Editor for not getting this issue out well in advance of the Thanksgiving weekend certification clinic. By the time you read this, that clinic will have occurred. If you or someone you know still needs certification, please contact our esteemed President Dave Wells at (303) 985-4481 or davidwells@earthlink.net. Most likely the next clinic will be in early February. If you're interested in becoming a "safety certifier" and helping out with these clinics, contact Dave Wells for more information on that process.
