Hello from the Atlantic Provinces.

The menu was baked beans, ham and brown bread at the Petitcodiac Sportsman’s Club for their February 25th winter league shoot. Adding a “light” meal to the club’s winter league days has been well received and is getting shooters out to the club regardless of the weather. Chef Dan Pollock is doing a great job by all reports.

The St. John’s Rod and Gun Club near Holyrood, Newfoundland and Labrador will be hosting the 2024 Atlantic Provinces ATA Provincial Shoot from August 28 – September 1. The Sponsor’s Challenge Big 50 on Wednesday, August 28 will kick off the shoot and the 800-target program starts on August 29. Shooters voted at last year’s provincial shoot to continue with a 4 day shoot and 200 target preliminary days instead of the traditional 300 target days. The change was made to give visiting shooters extra time to take in the local sites and attractions. Visit for more shoot details and a shoot program.

The 2024 Canadian Trapshooting Championships will be hosted by the Vancouver Gun Club in Richmond, British Columbia from June 26 to June 30. The club will also be celebrating their 100th anniversary this year so it’ll be a special occasion for the club. More details and a shoot program are available on
