The first step to participation is to join or renew your membership with USBA - they provide our insurance. Annual membership runs from Oct 31-Oct 31. Actually Aug 31-Oct 31 if you care to sign up early. There is also a member for a day option. http://www.teamusa.org/US-Biathlon/Members/Join-USBA.aspx

The next step is NSCF-FBC membership - send email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for registration and and waiver forms.

Finally, before you can use the range it is necessary to receive your USBA safety certification (using the USBA safety booklet, see below) for the USBA insurance to be valid. Several of the current range safety officers (RSO's) are qualified to do this certification so email if you are interested. It takes less than an hour. This is a one-time requirement as long as the club keeps records and/or you keep your red safety booklet signed by your RSO.

The Fairbanks Biathlon Policies, the USBA safety booklet,  and other interesting and informative reference material can be sent to you upon request. Temp cutoff for range openings is -5 deg F at this site (see weather tab) 2 h before the scheduled opening.

Nov 5 2014 update: Check often for updates and RSVP if you plan to be there. There will be statewide (Alaska Biathlon Association) races Nov 29 and 30. more info to follow.
