My wife chided me, they say, only the doctors dragged you from the edge, as you again took hold of yours.

I, playing along with her, spread out my hands, what can you do, so ugly.

It must be admitted that the leadership of the Domodedovo District Society of Hunters, headed by chairman Yuri Vladimirovich Bashmakov, pays due attention to the shooting training of its members, annually conducting various competitions in shooting from hunting rifles.

Personnel team shooting competition among hunters on June 8, 2019 was no exception.

A team of four athletes was exhibited from each team: two in the exercise “skeet” and two – the “ladder”; in the individual championship any member of society who expressed his desire could take part, presenting a hunting license of the company and a weapon permit.

Each competitor had to take 15 targets in the exercise “skete” or “ladder”. Championship was awarded to the team that hit the largest number of targets out of 60 possible.

In the finals for the individual championship in each exercise allowed six athletes who showed the highest results in the team and in the individual championship. The finalists took a series of 25 plates.

As is customary among hunters, the arrows began to arrive in an orderly manner at the appointed time at the base of Golubino, where the stand is located. Jokes, laughter … Conversations, mainly, were about spring hunting.

But on the speakerphone, everyone is invited to build. The chairman of the company, Y. Bashmakov, accepts the report of the chief judge A. Maltsevsky on the preparedness of athletes for competitions.

Winners of last year's competitions are invited to raise the flags of Russia and society. The anthem of Russia sounds.

At the end of the anthem, the chief judge announces the program of the competition, the sequence of shooting and reminds of the observance of security measures. The arrows diverge around the sites, and an uncompromising struggle begins.

I in these competitions wished to take part on personal championship, having given way to the team of young athletes.

Soon the whole district was announced by single shots and doublets. The most difficult was shooting on a trench stand. It should be recognized: the actions of the judges were clear, and the equipment of the stand worked without failures.

The spectators successful shots of athletes applauded. Especially a lot of applause went to your humble servant.

Looking ahead, I will say that I, as the oldest hunter, for aptly shooting (14 plates out of 15 and participation in the final) was awarded a diploma of spectator sympathies.

Competition results:

The 1st place was taken by the team of team number 9, composed of: S. Chistyakov, S. Shaikin, A. Nikulshin, K. Abramov;
2nd place in team number 13
3rd place was taken by team number 12.

In the final shooting on the “circle”, S. Rybalko won, and on the “trench” S. Leonov.
