Trap shooters at the Highland Gun Club took advantage of a break from lobster fishing and spring like weather and opened up on March 17.
In Newfoundland, shooters at the St. John's Rod and Gun Club are patiently waiting for spring and warmer temperatures for the start to their 2021 trapshooting season. Two weeks of RDF (rain, drizzle and fog) have delayed the start of the trapshooting season on the east coast of Newfoundland but a shift in the weather is looking possible for this weekend.
Rod Boll from Saskatchewan passed away suddenly on January 28. Our condolences to Rod's family and friends.
Rod was a talented ATA and Olympics Doubles trapshooter. Most recently, Rod won the 2019 Canadian Handicap Championship and was an 2021 ATA All American Veteran Team Member - one of his many times being selected an ATA All American for his shooting performance.
Rod attended the 2016 Atlantic Provinces ATA Provincial Shoot and won AA Open in Singles and Doubles, and along with fellow Saskatchewan shooters, Dwight Smith and Dave "Tiger" Williams, Cardinal Godefroy (Quebec) and Richard Bootsveld (Ontario) won the Atlantic Provinces 5 Man Team Singles trophy.
The 2020 Atlantic Provinces ATA Provincial Shoot was held September 5 - 6, 2020 in a satellite shoot format to help clubs ad shooters deal with COVID-19 restrictions and public health guidelines. The Highland Gun Club (NS), the Petitcodiac Sportsman's Club (NB), the St. John's Rod and Gun Club (NL) and the Stephenville Shooting Club (NL) held a very successful shoot. Congratulations to all winners and thanks to everyone that made this year's shoot possible.
Results are now available here.
