The Moosener Stockschützen celebrate their 25th anniversary.

The beginnings took place on the pavement in front of the beverage market.

Moosen

– Time just flies by.

The members of the Stockschützen department at SC Moosen also notice this.

Some of the driving forces like Georg Sterr are no longer with them.

The division would have loved to have celebrated its 25th anniversary with them.

But at the festive evening on Saturday, May 21, at 7 p.m. in the Gasthaus Zuhr in Moosen, she will be duly remembered.

founding

The first preparations for founding the department began in 1996, when 50 interested people put their names on a list.

On January 31, 1997, the time had come.

55 people present founded the new department at the innkeeper under the leadership of the then chairman Karl Liebl.

Simon Schraufstetter was elected as the first head of department, with Hermann Huber as his deputy.

The secretary was Hermann Prey, treasurer Josef Strohmaier, sports director Lurz Gerhard, assessors Oskar Obermaier, Gerhard Lurz and Michael Bayer.

Today the department has 93 members, but not all are as active as they were in the early years.

Initially, training took place on the tracks of ESV Taufkirchen, says today's head of department, Hans Sterr, in a press conference.

But own railways should soon follow and even more.

clubhouse

One of the highlights of the department was the construction of the clubhouse.

It all started in the fall of 1999. The members, under the direction of Hermann Huber, put in 3,528 hours of voluntary work to build the pretty house on the sports field.

With Herbert Lurz and Hans Huber, two experienced bricklayers were available.

Peter Eichinger was responsible for the plan.

In order to build as cheaply as possible, they relied on volunteers and relationships.

And the whole thing was financed by loans from members and sponsors.

The asphalt tracks were completed in 2000 and paid for by the main association.

"We even laid our own beer line," jokes Hans Sterr.

Because there was often great thirst, he reveals and shows photos of how the water pipe from the sewage treatment plant to the clubhouse was dredged.

The topping-out ceremony was celebrated in January 2000, the inauguration was in May 2001. In the same year the first seniors' afternoon and the first local championship of the old municipality of Moosen with 17 teams took place.

sporting events

Before the Mooseners had their own lanes, shots were sometimes fired on the pavement at the drinks dealer Sterr, which is also documented by photos.

The first tournament was held at Georg Sterr in August 1997 with nine teams.

“In 1999 there was even shooting on five lanes with eleven teams,” remembers Hans Sterr.

And that it was "brutally nice" back then.

It often started on Friday with a snack in the bag, and the shooting continued until Sunday afternoon.

Lenz Huber was the referee.

The first team competed in 1997 in the D class with Hermann Huber, Gerhard Lurz, Hans Sterr and Sepp Schraufstetter.

She ended up in fifth place and rose a year later, also on ice with Hans Huber, Herbert Lurz, Konrad Reithmaier and Michael Graf.

In 1998, the Moosener took part in 24 tournaments, by 2006 it was even supposed to be 75 tournaments.

The first Sterr Cup was held in 1998 and the last in 2012.

The women's team first competed in a championship in 2005 and made it into the national league in 2011.

This year, the German national team also took part in the SCM tournament.

A youth team was formed in 2005.

social

The highlights every two to three years were the trips that Sim Schraufstetter meticulously organized.

They led to South Tyrol, Dresden, Lichtenfels or Graz.

They already showed that the Stockschützen are interested in culture at the 1999 Sports Ball when they performed a peasant ballet.

Schraufstetter, who was head of department until his untimely death in 2019, also organized Schafkopf tournaments.

Night hikes and holiday programs were also organized.

anniversary tournament

There are tournaments scheduled for the anniversary: ​​on Thursday, May 26 at 2 p.m. for the women, on Friday, May 27 at 6.30 p.m. and on Saturday, May 28 at 9 a.m. for the men.

On Saturday afternoon there is a mixed tournament at 2 p.m.
