42 shooters accepted the invitation of the shooters club meeder to the sixth service rifle shoot. This ordnance rifle shooting with open sights or telescopic sight enjoys great popularity among sport shooters. The rifles used were built before 1945 and are usually over a hundred years old.

In the "open class with telescopic sight karl-heinz blumig won with 96 rings (five inside ten) ahead of klaus geibler (96, four inside ten), both from schutzenverein meeder, and michael simon (89) from SSV schutzengrund.
In the "discipline veteran open sights won armin putz with 100 rings (eight inside ten) ahead of manfred gildner (100, five inside ten), both from the sg coburg, and klaus geibler (100) from the schutzenverein meeder.
