Many districts of Maastricht have a citizin soldiery. The oldest one being the Maestrichtsche DienstDoende Stadsschutterij from 1815. Apart from practising its a very socializing thing. Good cold beer and guns. During the annual OLS they compete with other soldieries across the province of Limburg.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
