At the third day in Salzburg the teams will have a hard day work in order to compete in both the team and Individual matches of the Military Rapid Fire discipline. The Regional tournament is facing it’s end at the Liefering shooting ranges. The championship will close after the awards have been given and the closing dinner is ended today.
The team from the Ukraine could not travel with their firearms as the national regulations in Ukraine have changed. Andreas Sodl (AUT) immediately organized additional pistols and ammunition, so that the Ukrainians could participate. Friendship through sport at it’s best as even the ammunition has been given to the Ukrainians, free of charge by warrant-officer Sodl. President CSC Shooting, col Wolfensberger is at the championship to see with his own eyes the effort the Austrian delegation to CISM and the Austrian Military Pistol team have made to organise this championship.
