Trap and Field's Around the ATA article from the Atlantic Provinces ATA Delegate
Hello from the Atlantic Provinces.
The Petitcodiac Sportsman’s Club winter league ends on April 30 and competition is tight for the top shooter honours. Danny Boudreau has a four point lead over Terry Leblanc for the top Singles shooter while Terry has less than a half point lead over Danny for the top average in Doubles. Congratulations to league shooter Roger Legere who shot his first 25 straight recently during the winter league. As expected, his buddies congratulated him and then proceeded to shoot his hat. Well done.
I mistakenly reported last month that the shoot program for the 2022 Atlantic Provinces ATA Provincial Shoot was available on www.shootata.com. My apologies. The shoot program is available on the Atlantic Provinces Trapshooting Association’s webpage – www.shootatlantic.com. The shoot dates are September 1 – 4 and is being hosted by the St. John’s Rod and Gun Club located near St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. If you’re travelling to this year’s shoot and need ammunition or are looking for a hotel rate – check the shoot program for details on both. Pre-squadding will be available again this year and opens July 1 on PreSquad.com.
Newfoundland shooters Monty Petipas and Peter Tucker were in Florida in March and attended the 2022 Florida State Shoot at the Silver Dollar Shooter’s Club. Both had a great time and report that the staff at the Silver Dollar held another fabulous shoot. The guys were a little rusty after a long winter break from shooting, but it didn't take them long to get back on track. In Wednesday's Preliminary Singles event, Peter shot a 94 to win Class D Non Resident Champion. Congratulations Peter. Peter also celebrated his 65th birthday while in Florida which earned him a promotion to the ATA Veteran Category.
