PCSC Shooting visited Hannover

By invitation of the Cdr of the German Military Police, Brig Gen Udo SCHNITTKER (GER) and Col Hubert KATZ (GER) PCSC Shooting Col Bruno Wolfensberger (SUI) visited the main event of the German Army in Hannover. At 15 locations in Germany the 60th anniversary of the German Army was celebrated by more than 150.000 people. At 15 sites the local community had the opportunity to visit the barracks and see the military facilities and equipment. The highlight of the event in Hanover was the visit of Federal Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen. What topics the PCSC Shooting spoke about with the minister, we do not know, although we do think it concerns CISM.

CISM President thanked Lt Col Siegenthaler (SUI)

briefCISMpresAt the closing ceremony of the 2015 CISM Regional Shooting Tournament in Thun (Switzerland) not only the athletes that took part were awarded for their hard work and good results but there was someone else who came to the attention of the CISM HQ’s.
There was also a personal award – not surprising for someone who has organised many tournaments, not only for CISM, but also for the Swiss shooting federation.

We all know Lt-Col Daniel Siegenthaler as the always laughing “Oberst” who has gathered around him a well organised team of volunteers who have proven to be professional in every way.

Therefore, Col Bruno Wolfensberger, president CSC Shooting has been commissioned by Colonel Abdulhakeem Alshino, to present a letter in  special recognition to Lt-Col Siegenthaler personally saying:“Your initiative represents a role model of CISM organizers all over the world.”

Lt-Col Siegenthaler was awarded with a personal “Thank you”. Chief of Delegation Switzerland, Lt-Col Christian Hess has presented the personal letter and a CISM pennon to Lt-Col Siegenthaler.
