This biathlete had some unexpected company during a recent event.

Vancouver Island Biathlon Club has a busy winter planned

The Vancouver Island Biathlon Club (VIBC), operating out of the Mt. Washington Nordic Centre, will be offering a number of opportunities this season to get involved in the exciting sport of biathlon.

Programs offered by VIBC will include Biathlon Bears for younger children and youth aged 9-14 years, as well as a Masters program for ages 15 through adult.

VIBC is also offering the chance to Give It a Shot! On Dec, 31 you will be able to try this challenging Olympic sport at the club’s range, located just beyond the Raven Lodge.

All programs are taught by instructors trained to the standards of Biathlon Canada. The focus is on safety, but the fun is guaranteed. You can register for all courses online through Zone 4.

For more information, you can send an email to vibcprogrammer@gmail.com, or visit the website at http://vibiathlon.ca

If you would like to get more involved with the club or just find out more about us please join us for our AGM at 3 p.m. on Jan. 14 at the Vancouver Island Mountain Centre across from Raven Lodge on Mount Washington.
