2009 Atlantic Provinces Trapshooting Championships
Moncton Gun Club, Riverview, NB September 3 - 5, 2009
Shoot attracts 75 shooters including visitors from Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, Maine, Pierre et Miquelon and 15 from Newfoundland
Great weather – although the wind that comes with the Bay of Fundy tidal bore makes the targets a little more interesting
Andrea Bassan and Troy Coldwell tie for the Singles Championship with 197’s. Bassan drops his 97 target in the 2nd 100 to force the shoot off. Coldwell beats Bassan 25/24 to claim his 4th APTA Singles Championship while Bassan claims his 2nd APTA Singles Runner up trophy.
Low scores in the Doubles and Handicap Championship are attributed to the high winds. The last 3 Handicap squads shoot in near ideal conditions and report some high scores.
John Tucker and Brian Lewis shoot their way to Class titles in the Preliminary Day Singles.
