We close in on a group of three who walk away from us. The three approach the booth of the shooting prize festivity. At a distance of roughly 50m, way up on a maypole, a wooden eagle is fixed to the top. Whoever shoots has to do it standing up and can only stabilize the rather heavy old gun with his arms. The contest is in progress. A flock of a dozen boys aged 12-14 in uniform watch the proceedings and comment expertly. When Joseph arrives, they react with attention.
