We agreed that we could live without a member-at-large at this point.

Dear Biathlon Volunteer:

On a For Your Information note, you may get, or have gotten, a letter from the SLOC Volunteer Information Center which refers to setting up an interview, etc. Please be aware that this letter was sent to virtually everybody who had been identified as interested in being a volunteer for the Games. The letter was aimed at the 20,000 or more general volunteers needed for all of the various support and logistical functions, and not aimed specifically at the 3-4,000 experienced volunteers like yourself who have been, or will be, "targeted" for on-the-field-of-play, many of whom already have expressed commitment. You may also have been "selected" for a function other than Biathlon. Please ignore this part of the letter. There will be additional, and much more specific communications to Sport volunteers for Biathlon.

All of the volunteers for the Games will need to deal with a couple of contacts with the Volunteer Information Center. Every volunteer needs to submit the volunteer application, which can be accessed on-line at, and every volunteer will have direct contact, a "first interview", either in person in the Salt Lake City area or by telephone in the case of volunteers who will not be in the area prior to working any future training or test events.

If you have questions about the volunteer recruitment process for the Games or about any of the materials, please give me a call at 801 572-0145, or send an e-mail and I will either have answers or find them for you.

Please share this information with other Biathlon volunteers.

A Rocky Mountain Race Series is also in the works, which will tentatively include our December 17 and March 3-4 races. Marc Sheppard is coordinating this effort, and hopes to include Bozeman, West Yellowstone, and Heber (UT) in addition to Colorado in the list of race venues. Stay tuned to your e-mail for further information later this fall.

Other very important events: We will need volunteers to help at work days for both the Snow Mountain Ranch and Frisco venues. Please let the VPs for each of those sites know if you can help out (see Board of Directors contact information earlier in this newsletter).
