HP Budget Request for 2008-2009

administrative costs within the association budget is approximately
$240,000.00.
• This represents a Biathlon Canada support to high performance
programs of approximately $37,500.00 per senior athlete accessing

Proposed Motion
• To provide equivalent to carding support to our
top senior male athlete (Robin Clegg) for the
2008/2009 season so as to increase our chances for
a full male team at the 2010 Olympics. In the
event that this athlete achieves success in
qualifying a full team for the 2010 Olympics, to
further authorize the executive to extend such
support for the 2009/2010 season should he not
regain carding status. This motion is contingent on
the member returning to full-time status with the
National Team and all obligations it entails. The
amount of this support will be negotiated but will
not exceed 25K per year.
