An upgraded biathlon range at the Wodonga SSAA’s range facility was officially opened on Saturday, June 2.
The range development was enabled through a collaborative partnership between Telemark Nordic Ski Club, Wodonga Branch of the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia and the Australian Biathlon Association.
This partnership was further strengthened through the financial support from the Victorian Government shooting sports facilities program and Wodonga City Council.
“This is a clear acknowledgment and sponsorship of the significant contribution this new sporting facility will make,” said Telemark Nordic Ski Club’s Paul Cullen.
“It will provide greater accessibility in a regional area for children, lower socio-economic community groups and disabled and abled members of the community to be active and develop skills in an Olympic winter sport.”
The official opening was held at Wodonga Sporting Shooters Association Australia on Klinges Road Wodonga.
Among those attending from SSAA Victoria were President Denis Moroney, Facilities Manager Shaun Doyle, Director Marion Barnes and SSAA Wodonga Branch President Josh Knight.
