Vorchdorf, Oberösterreich, Österreich

Welcome to the Schützengesellschaft 1879 Vorchdorf!

REVIEW: Foreword to the 1st General Assembly on October 11, 1926: There were various shooting societies in Vorchdorf long before the present association was founded, and you can see that the shooting industry also found a home here in earlier years; The statutes of a room stub shooting started on November 12th, 1879 in the Fraunhofer inn, in which the teacher Franz Aichhorn and financial guard Respicient Johann Jägereder acted as riflemen and secretary. In addition, several members recall that, since 1892, room rifle shooting has been held alternately in the inn "zur Post" by the owners Fraunhofer, Pepöck and Dürrer and in Hundsdorfers Gasthaus by the guarantee, with probably many years of interruption.

During the World War, amusement shooting ceased completely due to the serious shooting. In November 1924, at the suggestion of some gentlemen, another indoor rifle shooting was initiated, the old rifle repaired, a new one purchased and shooting started in J. Hörtenhuber's inn on December 8, 1924. 31 riflemen took part. From this inventory, today's association "SCHÜTZENGESELLSCHAFT VORCHDORF" was formed on October 26, 1925, the legal status of which was approved by the state government in Zi 6045/2 A / 11 on December 10, 1925 and whose effectiveness begins on this day.

The shooting evening takes place every Monday from autumn to spring.
