Presquadding is now open for this year’s Atlantic Provinces ATA Provincial Shoot. Shooters requiring ammunition for the shoot should check the notice in the shoot program for ordering details. All ammunition must be ordered by August 1 to guarantee shoot delivery.

New for this year’s Atlantic Province’s ATA Provincial shoot is the Atlantic Provinces High Over All Lewis – a $1000 Added Money Lewis on the High Over All with no entry fee and a guaranteed payout. This purse is being brought to you by the Atlantic Provinces Trapshooting Association, the St. John's Rod and Gun Club and our shoot sponsors.

Would you like to have your entry fees covered for the 2020 Atlantic Provinces ATA Provincial Shoot? All you need to do is attend local ATA registered shoots and participate in our ATA Provincial Shoot. If you meet the requirements, you’ll be eligible for the Atlantic 1000 Purse. Nova Scotia’s Ken d’Eon did just that last year and will have his championship event entries paid for by the shooters at the St. John’s Rod and Gun Club.
