A few years ago, through your generosity, we were able to buy new mats for the range. This year Curt has paid for a number of improvements to the range out of his pocket. The biggest of which is the new roof over the targets. The roof will protect the targets from the weather. The targets are now tied into the support structure, which has made them much more stable. The new roof should make it easier to set up the range for a race.
In addition to the new roof over the targets, we have also finished off the siding on the warming hut, and finished the roof over the area where the mats are stored.
Three years ago we raised over $3000 dollars for shooting mats. We are hoping that you will again donate and help offset the costs (approximately $5000) of the building projects.
Below is the original successful GoFundMe description:
New Biathlon Mats For the Saratoga Biathlon Club!
We are going to upgrade our biathlon mats for this coming season. For years we have used old carpet remnants, which are falling apart. The new mats that we will buy will be PVC mats (like those used in Lake Placid), which will offer more comfort and durability.
These new mats cost about $200 each. Our goal is to raise enough money to that we will be able to buy 17 mats by the time of the first biathlon races in January 2018.
