The North Central Washington Gun Club is located at 2710 Gun Club Road, East Wenatchee, WA. It is on the heights above East Wenatchee.

Eligibility: This event is designed for those new to Biathlon and those interested in a basic refresher. It includes the mandatory safety class as well as training in range procedures, race strategy and marksmanship. It is not intended for experienced Biathletes. It is limited to twenty participants so preregistration is required.

Ammunition: Biathlon rifles use low or standard velocity .22 caliber ammunition with 40 grain lead bullets. The WBA supplies rifles and ammunition for this event.

Instructors: Instructors will be experienced biathletes from the Washington Biathlon Association, including athletes who have competed nationally and internationally. For more information please contact Clinic Director Bob Vallor at bob.vallor(at)wabiathlon.org.

Safety Certification: The Mandatory U.S. Biathlon Association safety certification course will be given with this clinic. If you have already taken the safety course you are encouraged to go again, as there have been some rule changes in recent seasons.
