Curious about biathlon? Excited about the Olympics?

If so, come to the Birch Hill Cross Country Ski Center on Sunday, February 18, from 1:30 to 5pm for a biathlon information and entertainment event. Replays of biathlon events from the current Winter Olympics will be shown on a big screen. Members of the NSCF Biathlon Program will be there to answer questions about the local program. Actual biathlon competition rifles will be on display so you can get a look at what athletes are really using. Laser rifles will be available for anyone to try from 3 to 5pm. Tell your friends and challenge them to a laser rifle competition!

This event is a joint effort by the Biathlon Program of the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks and the Fairbanks North Star Borough Parks and Recreation Department. For more information on the club contact Jim Pasek at For more information on the Olympic replays at Birch Hill contact Lee Williams at
