Saturday, January 11, saw the Kitimat Army Cadets hard at work preparing for their zone biathlon competition coming up on January 18 in Prince George.
Alongside the Terrace Air Cadets at the Onion Lake Cross Country Ski Trails, the Kitimat Cadets practised everything from laying down at the firing line with skies on, to proper skate-skiing methods.
This is Kitimat’s very first time competing in a winter biathlon and what they may lack in experience, they make up for in spirit, determination and a willingness to learn. Their wonderful coaches and officers have ensured they are prepared for the excitement of their first biathlon competition.
The rental fees and associated costs were generously covered by the Kitimat Army Cadet Sponsor Committee, making the activity free to all participants.
The Kitimat Army Cadets meet every Tuesday in the Kildala Gym at 6:15 p.m. and are always looking for new recruits. Cadets is a completely free program and biathlon is only one of many unique activities available to cadets.
