Schuetzengilde Treuenbrietzen, Sister Club News Ė By Paul Bishop

Long live the King!The Shooting King, that is.Congratulations to Doug Kann, the winner of the fourth annual Koenigsschiessen (King's Shoot) that took place on the 7th of October.After finishing in the top ten shooters from the qualification phase, Doug fired the shot closest to the mark on a decorated wooden target called the hrenscheibe (Honor Target), earning him the Ehrenscheibe itself as a trophy, and the title of Schuetzenkoenig until next year's match.Finishing in second place, and for the third straight year I might add, was Ross Baer who earns the title of erster Ritter (first knight).Chalmer Cloyd,a first-timer in this event, earned the title of zweiter Ritter (second knight) for his third place finish.The weather was mild for this traditional European-styled match, and all shooters shot very respectably making each of them a victor in their own right.Congratulations and thanks to each participant!

Our friends Arno and Gundula Engel from our sister club in Treuenbrietzen will be paying us a visit this December.This will be the third time Arno and Gundula have visited our club.Ross and Judy Baer will be hosting the Engels in the Baer home.Our members can give our visitors a warm welcome at a reception in their honor at the Lindenhof (German-American Hall) on the evening of December 22nd.If you are able to attend, contact Paul Bishop at 579-2914 for details.
