BLIND SHOOTING

The ISCD invited the Chairman of the IBSA shooting sport committee on May 1, 2003 for a meeting to discuss future cooperation.

With Mr. Franz Voglbauer a constructive meeting was held on various topics re blind shooting.

This resulted in a memorandum of understanding in which the different guidelines were set that must lead to a better understanding between both sport committees and hopefully will be to the benefit of our blind athletes.
