A bit of rain didn't stop us from enjoying another session of roller-skiing in our favourite location. After roller-skiing we moved to the Sydney International Shooting Session (SISC) for target practise. I haven't been training anywhere near enough. My prone was good but my standing requires a lot more practise.
Here are our beginners with one-on-one personal supervison at today’s Australian Biathlon Target Shooting Session at SISC. Our safety training session is thorough and we go through a safety focused syllabus. This is so all members know not only what is required of them and will also be able to identify and prevent safety breaches. Firearms safety is paramount.
Some of Sydney-siders made the trip down south to Canberra for the National Roller-skiing Championships. The event is held on a cycling circuit at Mt Stromlo which is more or less flat. The wind was strong and this was to add a strategic element which I'll explain soon. It was wonderful to see so many people competing. Approximately 100+ came from as far as Perth for the event. The first races were against the clock with seeing showings from NSW. Results - Sprint (1 lap) Wome
Roller-skiing is a very specialised sport which means it’s is not always easy to try and buy equipment. One area you can find equipment is gloves. There are specialist roller ski gloves or you can do what I’ve done which is buy a pair of work gloves from the local hardware store such as Bunnings. This way you can try the gloves before you buy and get the exact fit. Today I’m reviewing the Mechanix Wear Medium Leather Original® Gloves which are A$30 at Bunnings. Mechanix Wear
After a lengthy close to upgrade the facilities the Sydney International Shooting Centre (SISC) has reopened. There are new electronic targets. Sydney International Shooting Centre (SISC) was built for the Sydney 2000 Olympics. It is great to be training at this world class centre. #targetshooting #summertraining
