The GRP had a successful first year, with members earning a number of top ten SuperTour finishes, one making the U23 Worlds team, another making the U26 Biathlon team, several biathlon NorAm podiums, and top finishes at Eastern Cups and Open Carnivals.
A key responsibility for GRP members is making contributions to the mission-related work of the non-profit Craftsbury Outdoor Center, GRP’s host organization. GRP projects in the past year have included: trail improvements, coaching of youth and junior skiers, outreach to area schools, development of plans for both a garden and a compost system for the Center, construction of a stone/brick pizza and bread oven, organization of events and programs at the Center, design of the GRP website and clothing, blogging and writing articles, helping develop a regional trail system, working to bring more local food into the Center’s Dining Hall.
