A buxom goddess invites us to participate in a national and international shooting competition in Nancy. The Société de tir de Nancy (Nancy Shooting Society) was created in 1866 and drew on the heritage of the Arquebusiers de la Butte, an association of archers and crossbowmen founded in 1570. In operation to this day, it’s the oldest sports association in Nancy.
