FCpl Marsh, FCpl Baillon, and Cdt Stingel have qualified for the provincial level biathlon competition in Sault Ste. Marie. The competition will be held on February 11-12.
Squadron biathletes made a very strong showing, despite losing Cpl Clancy and Cdt Merhi due to the flu. FCpl Baillon placed 1st among in the Junior Male category (with the 2nd fastest time overall) and placed 2nd in the Open Team division. FCpl Marsh placed 8th in the Junior Male category and 2nd in the Open Team division with Baillon. Cdt Stringel placed 2nd in the Junior Male category and 9th in the Open Team division, in his first biathlon competition. Sgt Marc Legere, Stringel’s teammate, placed 14th in the Senior Male category. Cdt Max Benda competed as an individual and placed 26th overall in the Junior Male category. Almost 200 cadets participated in the Eastern Region Biathlon.
The squadron’s new ski equipment performed well. We would like those who contributed to the fundraising campaign. It is still ongoing on our GoFundMe page.
