Celebrations will be held from 7. Until 10. June, but already on saturday, 4. May there will be a commersabend.At the commemorative evening, the "schutzen" look back on their 100-year history. During this time, the association has developed steadily. The push sports offer could be under the leadership of today's 1. Honorary shooting master erhard happ, after the air rifle the air pistol was added. Both air guns are fired at the distance of ten meters. Two teams have been shooting with air pistols so far.
The top-ranked team in the lower franconia league had to be withdrawn from competition at the end of the season due to staffing problems. At the suggestion of the then gauschutzenmeister berthold hehn the bow department was founded. Two adult and one school team participate in the recently started season. Especially due to the commitment of the bow trainer marko friedrich, elisa tartler won the german championship a few weeks ago.
In the mid-1980s, the then youth leader frank neder started a targeted youth development program, which was continued by michael meindl and steffen sitzmann. Through intensive training, the schutzen have won numerous bavarian championship titles. Some talents had to start for other clubs, because the disciplines they shoot cannot be offered by the club.
Friendship round for the elderly
Here the brothers tobias and ralf hehn are especially active. Thanks to the establishment of the old-age friendship round in the rhon-saale region about ten years ago and the possibility to push on a laid-up basis, a good the opportunity has been created to bring back to the pushing stand older shooters who had already stopped active pushing sport.
"The inventor of the support slide deserves special reward. This has not only brought the older guardians back to the pushing stand, but our pensioners are also always ready for all kinds of work on the guardian house", according to sport director walter jopp. The thulbaer auflageschutzen dietmar bohlender, karl-heinz dunkel, anton friedrich, walter gluck, albert klubertanz, kurt kolb and gottfried mehling have dominated the auflage group in the age group for years.
When special competitions are coming up, anton friedrich and kurt kolb train three to four times a week. They are the most training hard-working archers of the club. He was honored in 2011 for 50 years of active pushing. Kurt kolb is with 76 years the oldest active guard of the association.
But also the oldest members of the club come again and again to the guardhouse for the king's thrust or for the century shot. Josef veth, with 84 years the oldest member of the club, took part last week in the competition for the 1000 euro of the century shot. The honorary members have also sponsored the ten guardian discs that have been created in the "jubilee disc" discipline are shot out.
