SKIS SKIS SKIS

Recently a WBA member donated 16 pairs of skis to be taken to the Leavenworth ski swap and sold, the proceeds going to the WBA. In addition, several more pairs were donated by another member. The skis were given to WBA president Bob Vallor to take to the swap this fall. While inventorying the skis he noted some of the skis could be useful to WBA members in advance of the swap, especially some of the skate sets. Below is an inventory of the skis. All, except the telemark skis have Salomon bindings. Many are in great shape, having been very well cared for and currently have on 'storage' wax to protect their bases. Pricing on the skis is not yet final, research is in progress. But if you are interested in any of the set listed below contact Bob at bob.vallor(at)wabiathlon.org. He will supply photo on request and a price quote. In addition, the WBA has been given a number of new and used Salomon bindings, some classic, some skate and one backcountry. They are available also.

All proceeds go to Washington Biathlon.

Nationals

If you are planning to attend the U.S. Biathlon Nationals at West Yellowstone later this month please let me know via e-mail. I will be going to support Washington biathletes at the practice and competitions. In order to effectively provide you with site corrections during competitions I need shooting sequence information from you. Also if anyone needs assistance with waxing or rifles I will have equipment to work on those areas as well as ammo to sell at cost. If anyone needs a WBA rifle to use I need to know right away.
