"A Brief History of our Club
On April 28, 1858, 47 friends met at P. Rudy Schumacher's Empire Hall at 2 Ralph Avenue in Brooklyn, NY and the new Brooklyn Schützen Corps was founded. It was an immediate success and new members joined at every meeting. The first "Schützenfest" was held in September, 1858, and has been an annual tradition ever since. The "Schützenfest" is the highlight event of our calender year. Members compete for many different prizes, trophies, plaques and medals by showcasing their individual shooting skills. Over the years many lasting friendships have been formed at the "Schützenfest" with our schützenbrothers here in America as well as those who may be visiting from Germany. Several of our members visit "Schützenfests" and other Schützen groups in Germany, where our members are always well received. We also host several German Schützen Clubs annually who come here to take part in the German-American Steuben Parade, held every September, in midtown Manhattan. It is the hard work and participation of our members that make these events a memorable success for all attendees."
