Agenda rifle association
About the foundation of the rifle association and sports association Liensfeld and incorporation of 1978 reports farmer and hunting tenant Henning Wülfken:Me - Henning Wülfken - which operates since his 14th year already in the shooting sport - can say about the foundation of the Liensfeld rifle association in 1977/1978 the following:
Several local villagers already shot longer time in foreign nearby rifle association s [like in Glasau, Braak, Wöbs]. Besides, with the Liensfeld´s matured with the time the idea, however, to establish even a shooting gallery.At this time the farm owner Kurt Struve was the village director. He, add called up Messrs. Hilger, Makolek, Negel, Schwarz and Wülfken as well as the ladies Goldbach and Wentorf and others as a result a villager meeting, where they introduced the planned intent and caught up to themselves in addition the approval.
It was decided to establish anew in the fire community centre or village community centre: Beside a kitchen and a storeroom for the fire brigade a regular shooting gallery. For the financing the village community Liensfeld agreed to grant an advance being more than several thousand DM, complements around sponsorship like with the voluntary fire brigade - which derived from the cultivation partially also benefit - and of the district rifle alliance. Then the efficiency would be contributed by the villagers and fire brigade members in a honourary capacity [The advances are long ago paid back]. Under leadership of Messrs. Werner Schmüth and Albert Schwarz the building design documents and formalities of the planning permission were provided then or finished. Then we established the building, from what the following photo gallery gives information. Material insurance now about the local assurance association. The construction measure, financing and own contribution enclosed of course also the internal arrangement, including shooting office layout. A statute was provided, put down on the association register and applied for - non-profit - tax freeing, which also was received.
In praxi: Shooting takes place with air guns, belonging to association. Small caliber shooting is forbidden with the internal village situation. The association holds the air guns together with ammunition under care. They leave Liensfeld only under supervision during external competitions. Liability insurance security occurs through the district protection alliance. Beside the registration for the association register are not necessary with air guns gun license and possession map. The status in 2012 is with low yearly subscription:Just 70 village people as members [nor all active] of our rifle association. Election of the board of directors, the substitution, the shooting servicer and the secretary guidance occurs all four years. Association board of directors at the moment:
·Frank Struve (1. chairman)
·Wolfgang Schmüth (2. chairman)
Once a year a general meeting is fixed, where an event plan is suggested and is tuned. In this connection taking part in external competitions are under circumstances also included in the scheme. Our shooters Arthurs Bussler and Peter Makulik have gained, for example, already once the mastery of district. The sports exercise also possible after statute but is not offered, because of our low association size. Setting from or participation in other sociable events is possible.
