Dylan Wins Donut Biathlon | Losers: 4 doz. donuts

posted by SCVRC Juniors   [ updated ]

21 competitors, both juniors and adults, participated in yesterday's 'Donut Biathlon' -- our tribute to the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Everyone had a great time, except the donuts, and this might become an annual winter event.

The course was a 100 yard lap around the extended parking lot, followed by 5 shots in prone, a second lap, five shots in standing, then a final lap.  (click on the side image for a map view.)
