Excellent Racing this week end folks. It is very impressive to watch you all race. Biathlon is on a recovery week after 2 weeks of racing. Nordic is off to Mont Saint Anne this week end. 

Reminder to register for Eastern's registration closes Jan 28th at midnight. Here is the link Do not miss this deadline as it is very expensive to register late, usually $50 per race which is not fun to pay. Do it now so that you do not miss out. 

I think that everyone juvenile and older should register for all three races. These are local races, good competition and they are very fun. If you have a conflict at school that you can not get out of then missing Friday is not the end of the world. If you are looking for points and provincial and National ranking doing all three races is important.
