Sweden Regional CISM Pistol championship – 1

Monday evening August 22nd, the organising committee welcomed all 9 teams that participate in the 4th Regional CISM Pisol Shooting Championship in the Boden Garrisons.

Tuesday morning after the welcoming words of Colonel Mikael Frisell, commander of the Norrbotten regiment the athletes started a little training after major Esten Murbeck (NOR) had checked all trigger weights.

As a former CISM and ISSF rifle shooter Colonel Mikael Frisell knows what’s worst on competitions, so his speech was firm and short. ”I wish you every success in the competition in the spirit of fair play and friendship – friendship through sports. Together we can make this competition into a high quality and successful Regional CISM shooting competition. I hereby declare the Regional CISM competition in Pistol shooting in Boden 2016 opened. Let the competition begin.”

Both captain Lars Carlsson and Lieutenant Ingemar Proos have been very busy to prepare the championship for a few weeks and that has payed out. The training and Center Fire Team match ended with good results, happy athletes and without any problems.af_logotype20141_black2000px-Norrbottens_regemente_vapen.svg_

In Sweden they say: “Har ni bra förberedelser så blir det bra resultat”.
