Snowshoe Biathlon Scheduled For March 3 & 4

Snowshoe Biathlon Scheduled For March 3 & 4 – Most of us grew up knowing that when Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett sighted a target, it was going down. Here’s an opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts to see how they stack up against our folk heroes.  The St. Lawrence Valley Primitive Snowshoe Biathlon, organized by the Fort La Présentation Association and Forsyth’s Rifles and hosted by the Massena Rod & Gun Club, is March 3 and 4.  “In our primitive biathlon, competitors on snowshoes run or walk a measured course,” said Fred Hanss, an event organizer. “They must load and fire two shots from a muzzle-loading firearm at five targets set at well-spaced stations and throw an axe at the sixth station.”
