Mammoth Winter Biathlon: Effort of blood, sweat, joy

February 25, 2011

One look at the course map for the 2011 Mammoth Winter Biathlon and you know this is serious business.

It resembles an Olympic course.

It has a stadium built into the hill that looks out to the shooting lanes and across the lanes where competitors will pass three times during the course of the race.

Thus, spectators will be able to keep up on who’s in the lead, how often the lead changes, who is shooting when and who’s taking their penalty laps.

“Biathlon is changing and becoming much more spectator friendly,” said Race Director Mike Karch.

How Mammoth Lakes saved the world

World leaders today gathered in the tiny mountain town of Mammoth Lakes, California, in homage to the people who a century ago solved the problems of the world.

They assembled at the monument to John Wentworth, a common citizen and folk hero. It was he who commissioned the document that today is known throughout the world as Revolution Strategies, or RevStrats, but then was simply known as Recreation Strategies, or RecStrats.

RecStrats helped guide the people of Mammoth Lakes into a coherent way to think about themselves and their warring factions.
