On Sunday the Caledonia Nordics hosted their annual Fall Cross Biathlon Competition. This traditional season opener for the Northern Region enjoyed a fantastic turnout this year, with 4 clubs in attendance and 42 athletes competing. For many athletes it was their first ever biathlon competition.
Vanderhoof coach Gerd Erasmus was very happy with the event, saying: “Our athletes had a great time as they always do at this fall opener. It was a great opportunity to show our rookie athletes what a competition looks like, a chance to train the new parents on what to expect, and to remind the older athletes that their competition has been training and getting better too…lots of smiles on everyone’s faces!”
