Trap and Field's Around the ATA article from the Atlantic Provinces ATA Delegate
Hello from the Atlantic Provinces.
The Petitcodiac Sportsman’s Club completed their winter league on April 30th. Paul Devereaux edged out Danny Boudreau for the top Singles average score by 1 target while Boudreau claimed the High Doubles and the High Over All honours. The Petitcodiac Sportsman’s Club also hosted the Atlantic Province’s first ATA registered shoot for the 2022 season on May 7.
If you are looking to shoot ATA registered targets this summer there are plenty of shoots scheduled in the Atlantic Provinces. You can find the complete schedule on www.shootatlantic.com. A club contact list is also available under the Club Centre section of our webpage.
Shooters at the St. John’s Rod and Gun Club have started Phase 4 of their Trap Improvement Project. This final phase of a very ambitious multi-year improvement project will involve replacing the concrete trap walkways on the club’s oldest trapfield that were original placed in 1975. The club will have the work completed in time for when they host this year’s Atlantic Provinces ATA Provincial Shoot from September 1-4.
The 2022 Atlantic Provinces ATA Provincial Shoot is shaping up to be another well-attended shoot. In addition to resident shooters from across the four Atlantic Provinces, shooters from British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Ontario have already confirmed their attendance. All are making the most of their visit to Newfoundland and Labrador and are planning an extended vacation to explore our beautiful part of the world.
Presquadding for this year’s ATA Provincial Shoot opens July 1st. Please do your part and help shoot management reduce on-site registration line-ups by presquadding. It also helps shoot management get an indication of attendance and better prepare for club served lunches and the shooter social. If you are attending and need ammunition, check the shoot program that is available on www.shootatlantic.com for ammunition ordering details. All orders must be place by July 31st to ensure delivery in time for the shoot. If you are travelling to the shoot and are having difficulties finding a rental car, please contact me. Carpooling options exist and we may just be able to find you a car to use.
The 2022 Canadian Trapshooting Championships will be underway when readers start receiving this month’s Trap and Field. Visit www.shootcanada.ca and check out the CTA Scoreboard for live scores and event results.
