Biathlon

When: Saturday December 7th from 08hr50 to 13hr30

Where: Camp Fortune

Dress: Dress in layers and be ready for the weather. It is usually about 5 degrees cooler at CF than in the city, and we will be outdoors almost the entire time. Handwarmers are a good investment for exceptionally cold days. Experience has shown that a pair of thin gloves under mittens works well both on the range and on the trail. Cadets who wear glasses – it is a good idea to apply a little anti-fog spray to them before practice.

Other Information: Bring plenty of drinking water (there is no potable water on site), and a lunch. The region requires you to your provincial health card at practice. A senior cadet or coach will walk the team up to the chalet at time of arrival. Any cadet arriving after that can ski, but the region issues ammunition based on reported attendance, taken at 09hr00. Please clearly communicate pick-up time to your parents in advance as there is NO CELLUAR signal on site, and you will not be able to call /text them. Please review the 211 Squadron biathlon handbook. If you have any questions, don’t reply to this email, but to 211squadronbiathlon@gmail.com and we’ll get back to you ASAP!

All cadets, especially new ones, please be aware of the updated Cadet Guidebook, which you can download in PDF format from the home page of the squadron webpage.  The cadet guidebook will help you understand how the squadron works and provide you with the knowledge of what you need to know to properly function in the squadron.   It is to your great benefit to familiarize yourself with this resource.  You don’t have to download it, but you should at least go through it online.  It’s there to access whenever necessary.
