Shooting Competition Celebration 2000
150 Years Shooting Club
The German word 'Schützenfest' could be translated as 'fair
with shooting competetion', but this translation misses the point. The Schützenfest
(literally: shooters celebration) takes place once a year. From July 6th until
July 11th 2000, the Uelsen shooters celebrated the 150th year of their club.

communities) designed 16 arcs, which were erected throughout the village.
See photos of some arcs below. Listen also to the 'Uelsen
