The Bundesliga dream comes true for sg ebersdorf

It is done! After two attempts in 2016 and 2017 to reach bundesliga heights, ebersdorf has not only achieved its season goal of qualifying for the promotion competitions, but has also secured a place in the second-highest german league for air pistol shooters for the coming season in its third attempt.

As runners-up of the bavarian league north-east, the five ebersdorf shooters benjamin graf, waldemar penner, jan wagner, florian milles and team leader torsten spickmann went into the nerve-racking comparisons with seven other first- and second-placed teams from all bavarian leagues on the olympia shooting range in garching-hochbruck on.

A little "used to" the quieter bavarian league rounds in pfreimd (upper palatinate), however, the ebersdorf team had to acclimatize to the tense and noisy atmosphere during the competition. "That made us at the beginning already something to create", according to spickmann "but when it’s on, it’s on"!". This finally resulted in the third overall place.

u.s. senate committee votes for military strike on syria

US president barack obama has received backing for his threatened military strike against syria. The senate’s foreign relations committee on wednesday voted by a narrow majority for a limited military deployment. By a vote of ten to seven, with one abstention, the committee endorsed a house resolution to that effect. Both chambers of congress still have to agree to this. The U.S. Government intends to punish the syrian regime for its alleged use of poison gas that killed more than 1,400 people two weeks ago.

The bill calls for a military action lasting no more than 60 days. After this deadline, obama can ask congress to extend the mission for another 30 days. The deployment of ground troops is still ruled out, according to the paper. Obama had repeatedly stressed that no soldier boots fub should set foot on syrian soil.

Before obama can order the u.S. Destroyers stationed in the mediterranean, he is expected to tell parliamentarians that "all diplomatic and peaceful means" are being used had been exhausted. Parliamentarians also demand proof of the attack, which the U.S. Government believes was carried out by the regime of syrian president bashar al-assad.
