I am back from Bayern Cup 2013 (Philippsburg, Germany). This was fantastic match, all 12 stages were interesting and challenging. This time I was 11th out of 52 very strong shooters. I was proud to be in one squad with shooters from Italy. Luigi Silvestroni, one of the best pupm-action shotgun shooters was very kind to share his experience during the match.

Shooting range in Philippsburg is the best I’ve ever seen. It was raining for two days but we were able to shoot in comfortable conditions. All participants received plan, schedule and map of range. Organizers, Range Officers and helpers did a great job, everything was perfect.

Stages were really interesting, Sandra Schuh, stage designer, did a very good job. But I’d like to see buckshot stages next time. Stages with bonus clays were really challenging. Also, I like the idea of clays as targets for slugs.

Range officers were friendly and helpful.

Atmosphere was warm and friendly, I’ve met many friends, ROs and competitors from different countries. I am definitely going to Bayern Cup 2014!

Photo and video were prohibited on the match, that is why I don’t have much to show:
