This Summer Biathlon was organized by Allen Takahashi. The race took place in the San Francisco Bay Area not far from the San Francisco airport. The weather was gorgeous - no wind, temperatures in the upper sixties, clear and dry. Forty biathletes ran the course, and many stayed for the post race shoot-off, food, and awards ceremony. The results are posted here.
Thanks to the RSOs of the Coyote Point Rifle and Pistol Range for doing so much of the coaching and range set-up, all of you who stayed to help clean up, to Gloria, who handled with race registration and data entry, the Aufrances for taking care of the rifles after the race, those who helped with the many chores that I've forgotten to mention, and a special thanks to Wally and Liese Rapozo for putting in so much volunteer time every step of the way! The race would not have come off without all of your help and participation. And a thanks to our sponsors - Marlin Rifles, and Federal Ammunition.
