2019 Primitive Biathlon
Greetings! It is the honor of the Lamoille Valley Fish and Game Club to host our Third annual Primitive Biathlon in the spirit of the former Smugglers Notch Primitive Biathlon. This event will be held on Saturday and Sunday, January 26th AND 27th, 2019 at the Lamoille Valley Fish and Game Club at 1158 Garfield Road Morrisville VT. Start times will be from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm Saturday and 8:00 am to 1:00 pm Sunday. Please bear in mind that from approximately 10am to noon, lines waiting to go out may be fairly long. If you have serious time constraints, please try to work around those times. If that won’t work, let us know and we will do what we can to get you out on the course.
The well-marked course will start and finish at the club house and will be about two miles long.
Trophies will be awarded for first, second and third overall, first smoothbore, first pistol, first woman, first “Elder” (60 and over), and first junior (under sixteen). We will offer a class for participants over 70 years of age. Entrants in this class will be scored on shooting scores only. In the event of a tie the eldest shooter with the winning score will be declared the winner.
Please understand that we cannot allow non participants to accompany competitors on the trail. We will consider allowing an experienced shooter to accompany a youngster or newcomer to our sport on the trail. These requests will be considered on an individual basis and permissions given at the discretion of event organizers.
