letter of courtesy

Under the motto of CISM “Friendship Through Sport” and according to the CISM Policy Manual, the Chief of Mission should, up on return to his country, address a letter of coutersy to the organising delegation through his Chief of Delegation.

If you wish to thank the Swiss CISM team, Civil Protection of Thun and the Swiss Shooting Sport federation for a world championship that has met high results and left good memories, don’t forget to do this according to the CISM policy manual.

The CSC Shooting encourages the participating countries to let the Swiss delegation know what you have experienced in Thun.

Impressive construction 25m ranges

A few impressions of the reconstruction work carried out with army support for the 25m  shooting range (KD-Box) in the rear Riparian forest. In the period between May 31st and June 4th, 200 pistol shooters (120 men and 80 women) from around 50 nations will compete on the mobile system.

As you can see, the Swiss construction team is building this range with the same precision as they use to make the famous Swiss watches; therefore we expect that a new CISM world record could be very possible.

SFC George Norton won an individual bronze medal in Air Rifle and the team of SFC Norton, SGT Patrick Sunderman, SPC Brandon Muske, and Team USA member Matt Emmons brought home four silvers and one gold for the United States during the two week stint in Europe. Great shooting! #gousamu #armyteam
