The Championship is arranged by the Danish Defence Physical Training Centre and hosted by Varde Garrison, where the Danish Army Intelligence Centre and the Danish Army NCO School are located.
Varde Garrison will form the base for the championship, although most of the shooting will be conducted in the civilian Vingsted Range and the field shooting in Nymindegab Military Training Area. Both locations approximately 45 minutes drive from Varde.

In 2016, the Swiss CISM team will organise another CISM Regional championship. If you or your team is interested to take part, please send an e-mail to Lcol Daniel Siegenthaler, chief of the Swiss Shooting Discipline.
All CISM members are invited to reply.
The championship will take place from October 3rd – 7th 2016 in the Guntelsey shooting range.
At 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.
The complete result list of the CISM Regional Shooting Championship in Thun can be found here.
It has been an interesting Championship with new and old athletes taking various results after long training and hard work in the ranges. The weather was excellent, the athmosphere terrific and Swiss delegation has once again shown professionality in hosting a CISM shooting championship where the moto: “FRIENDSHIP THROUGH SPORT” is always met by all nations.
Thank you for your participation and hope to see you next year in Thun!
