SPECIAL NEWS FROM MY SPORTS SHOOTER
My Sports Shooter would like to help you all celebrate the Bala Retro race by rolling back prices on digital downloads to the prices back in the 80’s! Since they didn’t have digital files available in the 80’s those prices would be ZERO!
That’s right! All the photos from Bala are free for anyone to download! High resolution images…all yours for FREE!
Silly us! I guess we should have thought it through!
Mike Cheliak and the My Sports Shooter Team

We hope that you all take a moment to check out our Series Sponsors below or visit the sponsors page and see what they do and look at the products they sell. Please thank them for supporting the sports of Triathlon and Duathlon by trying and using their products. If you do visit them please take a moment to thank them for supporting Triathlon, Duathlon and Kids races in Ontario.
