Closing dinner Regional CISM Shooting championship Austria 2017

On August 31st the awards were handed out by Brigadier General Heinz Hufler and a closing dinner was presented. The president of the CISM Sport Committee Shooting Colonel Bruno Wolfensberger thanked the General for giving the opportunity to organise this event in Salzburg. A special thank you and appreciation also to Warrant Officer Andreas Sodl who not only organised this championship but also showed some special “Friendship through sport“. He managed to supply the Ukraine pistol team with guns and ammunition – free of charge – as they were not permitted to take their own shooting equipment out of their country. Here we can see that by standing together  the people in military sports can overcome political barriers. The participants stayed at the Schwarzenbergkaserne in Salzburg which are near to the Liefering shooting ranges and were well presented.
