The Polar Bear and Syracuse Biathlon Clubs are excited to announce the introduction of their Summer Biathlon Point Series.  This consists of six races over the summer between the two venues where participants will earn points based on their age group and shooting performance as well as participation level.  With this inaugural season we will name female & male champions for the novice group, 18 and under and 19+.  Champions will receive a special award, gift certificate good for one race entry to either club’s event and undying glory.    Our first race kicks off at Syracuse on June 22 with a combined instructional clinic & sprint race followed by a sprint event at Old Forge on June 30th.  Details for both events can be found at the links below:
