VAST biathlon camp

The VAST Fifth Annual Nordic Biathlon Camp at Pineland Farms Feb. 28-March 4 attracted 16 competitors from California, Oregon, Florida and throughout New England. According to organizer Kristina Sabasteanski, one entrant was nearly 100 percent visually impaired, four have undergone amputations, several deal with traumatic brain injuries, some have PTSD and others received injuries from improvised explosive device blasts in Middle Eastern war zones. A few of the participants had never skied before the event but managed to hone their skills enough to compete in relay races testing their cross-country ski and target shooting abilities.

A horse-drawn sleigh owned by Stillbrook Acres delights passengers with a jaunt over the undulating, snow-covered terrain at Pineland Farms. All rides are sold out this year for this popular event.

Full Moon Trek

Join RRCT members, neighbors, trustees, toddlers, grandparents and friends to hike the loop trail during the eighth annual Pisgah Hill Full Moon Trek from 5-8 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 19. The highlight is a bonfire at the summit where hikers can sip hot cocoa, toast marshmallows and hoot or howl at the big orange rising moon.

All the fun happens at Pisgah Hill Preserve, 74 Dougherty Road, near the Pownal town line. Plan to start your approximately 30-minute hike between 5 and 6:30 p.m. on a 1.5-mile lollipop-style loop trail. The path is well-marked and typically lighted with luminaries for the return. Gentle elevation rise and a rickety bridge on the trail require some effort; assistance for the elderly or toddlers may be required for one or two steep ledge steps.

Bring snowshoes or sturdy boots with grippers, poles, a flashlight or headlamp, a blanket, water and lots of good cheer. Marshmallows and more are provided at this free event. The trailhead has a small parking lot which fills quickly. Most vehicles line the shoulder of Dougherty Road.
