Changes to Biathlon Alberta Hosting Policy

By January 5, 2022No Comments

There are two changes in the Biathlon Alberta Hosting Policy that came into effect on January 1, 2022.

  1. Air Rifles are no longer a race category in Calforex Cup events instead will be Eco-Aim’s used in future races. If your club does not own any Eco-Aim’s and you would like to try them or have questions around purchasing Eco-Aim’s, please contact Elmar at elmar@biathlon.ca

2. Changes to the Wax Protocol. Since January 1, 2022, Biathlon Alberta banned fluoro waxes of any variety (high, medium, or low), high fluoro speed blocks and powders. The use of hand structure on skis is allowed. You can find the complete wording at 10.1 in the Biathlon Alberta Hosting Policy.
