Hello from the Atlantic Provinces.

To all gun club managers: Do you know that the ATA provides all active clubs with five complimentary memberships for first time members? It’s a great way to attract new shooters to ATA registered shooting. If you haven’t received yours for this year, contact me or the ATA for more information.

I still have a few tickets left for this year’s ATA Gun Club Raffle. Tickets are $20 for a chance to win a Kolar Regal Trap Combo. All proceeds support the ATA Gun Club Fund which provides funding, through an application process, to active ATA gun clubs that are undergoing upgrades and improvements. It’s a fantastic program that the St. John’s Rod and Gun Club in St. John’s, NL has benefited from. The grants received to date have helped fund their multi-year Trap Improvement Project which included the replacement of two traphouses and three trap walkways. The club’s fourth walkway will be replaced this summer. Please support the ATA Gun Club Raffle with the purchase of a ticket or two!

The shoot program for the 2022 Atlantic Provinces ATA Provincial Shoot is now available on This year’s shoot will return to St. John’s, NL and the St. John’s Rod and Gun Club from September 1-4, 2022. If you need ammunition for the shoot, see the instructions in the shoot program and on on how to place an order. If you’re travelling to attend this year’s shoot and need a rental car, reserve one ASAP as there’s a local shortage of rental vehicles. We also have a few new sponsors for this year’s shoot. Have a look through the program and support the sponsors that support us where you can.

The Canadian Trapshooting Association (CTA) have announced that they will be re-introducing the CTA All Star Teams that recognizes Canada’s top trapshooters. Congratulations to the 2021 team members. The 2022 Canadian Trapshooting Championship is being held in Calgary, Alberta at the Calgary Firearms Centre June 29-July 3. Visit for all the details on the CTA All Stars and for a shoot program.
