Trap and Field's Around the ATA article from the Atlantic Provinces ATA Delegate
Hello from the Atlantic Provinces.
Some good news to report this month from across Canada and the Atlantic Provinces.
The 2021 Canadian Trapshooting Championships (CTA 2021) satellite shoot has been rescheduled to August 6-8. This date change was necessary to provide all provinces the best opportunity to host. The CTA 2021 shoot format remains the same with a 3 day, 700 target tournament hosted by eleven club in nine provinces. Finding an alternate date wasn’t an easy task but these dates seem to work for the majority of host clubs and shooters. A complete list of host clubs, schedule of events, trophy schedule and a shoot program are available on www.shootcanada.ca.
The 2021 Atlantic Provinces ATA Provincial Shoot is a go for September 2-5 at the Highland Gun Club in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. COVID-19 restrictions in the Atlantic Provinces are easing as a greater percentage of the population are receiving their COVID-19 vaccines. All four Atlantic Provinces have established reopening plans based on basic criteria, which include a percentage of the population with first and second vaccine doses and the current number of COVID-19 active cases.
Travel restrictions within the Atlantic Provinces have been removed but travel into the Atlantic Provinces from the rest of Canada is still restricted. However, if the phased reopening plans stay on schedule, the Atlantic Provinces should be open to the rest of Canada well before our shoot date. The Atlantic Provinces Trapshooting Association and the Highland Gun Club are looking forward to hosting and seeing all our friends again. Shoot updates, hotel rates, presquadding details and the latest shoot information can be found on www.shootatlantic.com.
In Newfoundland, the St. John’s Rod and Gun Club have started work on Phase 3 of their Trap Improvement Project. This year’s work will include replacing the trap walkways on two of their four trap fields. One walkway was replaced in 2020 and the remaining walkway is scheduled to be completed in 2022. The goal is to have all trap walkways replaced for when they host the 2022 Atlantic Provinces ATA Provincial Shoot.
