March 22-23, 2014: Alberta Biathlon Championships.

Edmonton's biathletes returned to full on winter last weekend in Hinton. 10cm of new, well groomed snow on a deep base, racing at -14 to -10 under sunny skies - it doesn't get much better than that! In addition to the usual share of medals and clean-shooting chocolate, our biathletes also came home with several Calforex Series Championships trophies. Notably, Bryan Singleton as the Masters Men champion and Jessica Paterson as the Jr. Women champion. At the other end of the scale, we almost swept air rifles, with Linklater siblings Helena and Callum taking the two Air Rifle-2 trophies and new comer Jake Taylor (Bjorn's lad) taking Air Rifle-1 Boys.


The Hinton hospitality was up to its usual great standards, including a banquet with zany competitions for draw prizes. We are looking forward to going back in 2015, when Hinton hosts the National Biathlon Championships.
