The National Firearms Association has continued their phenomenal support for the fifth year running.To Sheldon Clare president and NFA members and supporters I am inexplicably thankful for your support. I look forward to representing the NFA at a local, provincial, national, and international level. I would not be able to perform at the level that I do without their help. I encounter many expenses that I must overcome in order to achieve my goals. I truly appreciate the NFA’s dedication to youth in sport, marksmanship and biathlon. I am very grateful. The support was for $2500 and will make NFA my biggets sponsor since they began sponsoring me in 2008!

Time to put my bike addiction aside 'till next year. I finished my last bike race of the year with a 5th place in the Alberta Superweek: Jason LaPierre Memorial Hill Climb (August 10th-pictures below). Ill admit, I was disappointed with the result (http://zone4.ca/results.asp?ID=5023&cat=304) but all in all had one of my most rewarding summers yet, finishing the year in Category 3. I'm excited to pick up where I left off in April but for now my focus and goals are winter-based!
So, for the Fall I have one goal and one requirement. My goal is to give all my efforts to Biathlon and get the most out of the training left before hitting the snow. My requirement is to make enough money to do so. Its a fine balance but I'm up for the challenge and honestly the excitement of racing makes the hard work and sacrifices back ground noise. I'm working a part time job this Fall at the Canmore Golf Course and with the support from my awesome sponsors I cant wait to get on snow and do what I love!

National Firearms Association and the Prince George Ramada have literally made it possible for me to race this year with their support! Thanks also to Devinci, Rudy Project, and Icebreaker for supporting my cycling and biathlon season...at least I look good! Cheers
