We will be holding a one day cross country ski clinic on December 28th. The clinic will focus on skating technique. This clinic will be open to skiers of all ages and abilities.
Coaches will include three time Olympian, Curt Schreiner and 2008 Masters Biathlon National Champion Tom Moffett. More coaches will be announced shortly.
There will be a minimum fee for the clinic, and of course the clinic is snow dependant. Stay tuned for more details.
For the second year in a row the Saratoga Biathlon Club was selected to host the NYSSRA XC Championships and NY Biathlon Championships. This years event will feature races in cross country, biathlon, and ski-o, and will take place during the last weekend of February.

In an effort to make the site more interactive we have (or are in the process of) converting the site to a blog based site. This will allow for people to comment on items, as well as for multiple authors to post items. Look for Curt to post trail reports as soon as the snow starts to fly.
Another new feature is you can recieve an email whenever the site is updated by subscribing to our feedburner feed. Just enter your email address in the text box to the right. Don’t worry you won’t be getting overwhelmed with updates. Feedburner sends out only one email a day, and if there aren’t any updates there won’t be an email.
To post comments you must create an account, this is a relatively painless process, other than solving the captcha. Although we are using recaptch which is a pretty cool project, – read about it here. If you would like to contribute as an author on these pages please contact Tom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The club will be holding two summer biathlon races this weekend. On Saturday we will hold a sprint race, all classes will again run the 4.2 km race. On Sunday we will hold a 2 x 4.2 km relay race. If you don’t have a partner for the relay, don’t worry we’ll find someone for you the day of the race.

And for those who aren’t satisfied with only one race on Sunday, we will hold the 1 km biathlon challenge after the race. This one will be fast, run 300 m shoot 5 prone shots, run 300 m shoot 5 standing shots, run 300 m to the finish. For each miss you will be assesed a 10 s penalty.
Don’t forget to bring your bathing suits, the water is great right now. Look for a post on the Run-Pedal-Tube triathlon held on Hadley this past Saturday coming later today.
