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.
- Elected Atlantic Provinces Trapshooting Association Officials:
- President: Andrea Bassan, Vice President: Troy Coldwell, Treasurer/Secretary: John Nichols
