On day two, the group teamed up for the Patrol Race. This event requires teams of three, to work together, skiing and carrying kit, and assembling and shooting rifles.

A driving snowstorm didn’t make life any easier for competitors, but the local team persevered, and completed the race without help from coach Lt. Ken Lane.

Congratulations to the local athletes, competing in one of Canada’s most difficult sports.
