Congratulations to the 211 biathlon team who raced at the regional competition this weekend in Camp Fortune!

Not only did 211 have cadets place within close striking distance of moving on to the provincial competition, but everyone truly gave it their best effort, showing great sportsmanship, and esprit de corps. As everyone who attended can attest – 211 cheered for all the racers louder and harder than any other unit… but with a little extra noise held in reserve for their team mates!

Well done, 211 biathletes!
