Lanny and Tracy Barnes both have their eyes set on competing in another Olympics, while fellow Durangoan Tad Elliott shares the twins’ goal – the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. The Barnes have been there before – 2006 and 2010. Elliott wants to follow in his father’s footsteps. But first, the respective biathletes and Nordic skier need to find the money and the strength to compete on their respective World Cup circuits. That’s where Durango and the Friday-night fundraiser came into play: “We don’t look at this as just a group of supporters,” Lanny Barnes said. “These people are family to us.”
