Hello from the Atlantic Provinces.

Nova Scotia’s Barry Turner and Peter Tucker, John Tucker and Monty Petipas from Newfoundland attended the 2024 Southern Grand at the Silver Dollar in Odessa, Florida in March. The Southern Zone has been a regular March break for the group and they always enjoy the shoot.

Barry has been attending ATA Satellite Grands, and the Grand American from time to time, since 1985, and this year’s Southern Grand makes 100 of those shoots for Barry. The two Tuckers have been shooting ATA registered targets since 2006 and both brothers recently shot their 25 000 ATA registered singles target. Congratulations guys. Monty recently retired and has some catching up to do.

The days are getting longer and warmer on the east coast of Canada. The trap clubs will soon open for the 2024 trapshooting season and there’s a full slate of registered shoots scheduled. The Atlantic Provinces shoot calendar can be found on
