Pat receives June Hooper Award from Biathlon Canada

June Hooper Award (Builder of the Sport of Biathlon in Canada): Pat Bobinski, NWT

 

 Pat has been involved in the sport of Biathlon for the greater part of his life, at least 40 years or more. He participated as a biathlete in a number of Arctic Winter Games, but most of his biathlon involvement has been in the role of coach and contributor. He was instrumental in the development of the NWT Biathlon Association, and has been its president for most of its existence. Without Pat and his enthusiasm for the sport, it is doubtful that biathlon would still exist in the north.  It most certainly would not be the thriving activity that we see today.  Reaad more..
