Hello from the Atlantic Provinces.

The St. John’s Rod and Gun Club held their first ATA registered shoot of the season on May 28. The club will host the Eastern Classic on June 18 and the Newfoundland and Labrador Provincial Trapshooting Championships on July 23. Gun clubs are scattered throughout the province so organizers have decided to continue with the satellite shoot for the provincial competition. A satellite or telephonic shoot reduces travel requirements and expenses for participating shooters. Organizers have also found that a satellite shoot format encourages participation at the smaller clubs.

In other parts of the Atlantic Provinces, the Highland Gun Club in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia will have a singles marathon on June 17, a doubles marathon on July 8 followed by a handicap marathon on July 29. In New Brunswick, the Petitcodiac Sportsman’s Club will host a 100 singles / 100 handicap shoot on July 15.

Shooters at the Highland Gun Club near Yarmouth, Nova Scotia are getting ready to welcome shooters for the 2023 Atlantic Provinces ATA Provincial Shoot being held from August 31 – September 3. Here are a couple of reminders for those attending. The deadline for ordering ammo is July 31, 2023. If you’re attending, and need ammo, place your order as soon as possible. Ordering instructions are available in the shoot program and online at Also keep in mind that the hotel rate with the Rodd Grand in Yarmouth is available on all bookings made before August 1. The Gun Dealer will be on site for the shoot and will have their trailer loaded up with guns, ammo and all your shootings gear and supplies.
