There is no snow at the Terrace Rod & Gun Club, but that hasn't stopped competitors from sighting in their rifles and familiarizing themselves with the terrain for the BC Winter Games Biathlon. Unfortunately the competitors won't need their skis unless there is a great change in the weather in the next 24 hours, but they will need runners. In the photo above, two competitors, one prone and the other standing, are seen shooting at paper targets to sight in their rifles while one of the coaches checks the accuracy through a spotting scope.
Rifles are left on a rack when not in use.
A coach does some cleaning of part of the shooting mechanism of a rifle for a competitor.
Paper targets are removed, so that the metal targets could be used for practise.
Bob Jenkins of the Terrace Rod & Gun Club checks a competitor's rifle to see if the firing mechanism is up to required standards for the competition.
