CISM Regional Championship Thun (SUI) 2017

LCol Wanner (SUI)

From October 2nd – 6th 2017, the Swiss CISM team will organise a CISM Regional championship. LCol Christian WANNER, the new chief of Swiss CISM Shooting  welcomes the teams at the Guntelsey shooting ranges.

The invitation has been sent to the invited nations and as the organiser is focusing on a “regional” tournament (more Europe and only a few selected other nations) a few nations had to be disappointed for not being able to participate. As there were not enough accommodations and infrastructures due to the cause of renovations in the barracks and of course as the date of the final entry has already passed and the maximum of participants and nations have been reached. All nations however  are kindly invited to join the next CISM Shooting World Championships 2018, held in Switzerland (29.05.18-06.06.2018)

The invitation and program can be found here: Invitation Shooting Switzerland 2017

The CISM Pentathlons will receive a lot of attention during the Games.

All participants were blessed to be the guests of honor of a ceremony marking the commencement of the construction of the athletes’ village in Wuhan. That village will be ready to accommodate 12.000 athletes and officials as well as organizing staff in 2019. It is designed in a spirit of eco-sustainability and conviviality for all participants.

Officials of Wuhan City will attend the 3rd CISM World Winter Games in Sochi and the 72nd CISM GA in Athens next May and the 3rd CISM World Cadet Games 2018 in Indonesia, to promote with CISM officials all information on the Games.
