Summer Biathlon Nat'l and World Champ. Trials

June 05, 2008, 12 a.m. (ET)
Entry forms must be postmarked by July 3 (one month from today).  So, if you 
intend to compete, you should get your entry form in the mail as soon as
possible. I’ve attached all entry information to this email. If you have any
difficulty downloading or printing this information, please contact me and I’ll
mail or fax the information to you. You can also download this information at
the Pennsylvania Biathlon Club website (<>)
or the United States Biathlon Association website (<>).

Also, just to give you a heads-up… If you think you will be a contender to
qualify for the world championships, you should come to the trials prepared to
commit to going to worlds or decline your nomination in the event you would
qualify. That means that if you do not already have a current passport, you
should apply for one IMMEDIATELY so that you can bring your passport information
with you to the trials. You can get passport application information at the
United States Department of State website:

At the world championships, the schedule is as follows:
Monday, September 22 Unofficial Training
Tuesday, September 23 Official Training
Wednesday, September 24 Sprint races
Thursday, September 25 Pursuit races
Rollerski competitions will then be held September 26-28.

The team’s likely travel dates for worlds would be a departure on or about on
Friday, September 19 and a return on or about Sunday, September 28.
