The International Friendship Shooting will take place once again in Switzerland, at the stand de tir de BERNEX (Bernex shooting range in the Canton of Geneva), Saturday September 11, 2010 at 8.30 a.m.
You can participate individually or by team of 3 officers or warrant officers belonging to the same organization, group or country.
Organized by the AORSL, in collaboration with the Military Society of Geneva (SMG) and the Central Company of Military Shooting (la Centrale), this competition consists of 5 tests, totalising 60 cartridges, using 5 Swiss military weapons :

Individual weapons are prohibited.
Additional, optional shootings and outside contest could be carried out with various hand weapons.
Two classifications will be carried out: military category (starting from the rank of senior corporal) and guest category (police force, customs, sport gunners). Cups and medals will reward the winners of each discipline. A patent of war weapons mastery will be given to the gunners having reached the necessary scores.
This year we will attribute the Challenge « François Gervaise » - in memorandum of our deceased comrade - to the competitor having the highest number of 10, across all categories and weapons.
At midday, a meal will be served in the shooting range. Combat outfit is recommended; failing this, a sport civil outfit.
To avoid any problem at the border crossing, you are requested to dress in military outfit only after the arrival at the shooting range of Bernex.
