Hats Off Ontario; Skeet, Trap, Sporting Clays

Three Canadian clubs in Ontario that deserve a Hats Off for their efforts...

The Kingston District Trap, Skeet and Sporting Clays Club put it's annual Ducks Unlimited NSSA Skeet Shoot under the microscope and reduced the cost to participate. The club also reformatted it's website and visitors to the site should find it easier to navigate.

Raising cost of NSSA shoots is a growing concern and the Kingston club took positive steps to address this issue.

The Hamilton Gun Club is hosting the 53rd Canadian Trapshooting Championships and the effort to attract American shooters is something I've not seen in recent years by any club in Canada, for any clay target discipline.

The shoot has been posted to numerous talk boards and emails have been sent to American shooters. A special Canadian Trapshooting Championships website was created and provides a wealth of information.

The club has even secured the services of Presquad.com which provides the fastest, most convenient and secure method for for pre-squadding and used by many trap clubs in the states that host ATA shoots.

215 beautiful trophies - over 150 available to Non-Residents - and $12,000.00 offered in cash prizes!

The buzz for this shoot is so great that Terry Heeg (editor in chief) Trap & Field will personally cover the event!

The Galt Sportsmen's Club has taken it's sporting clays operation to new levels with an investment of over $100,000.00 and a aggressive schedule of NSCA registered shoots. Many clubs in Canada offer sporting clays, but not many offer NSCA targets.

The club is still in process of fine tuning the shoots and if they can maintain the level of interest they may have other clubs in Canada revisit the idea of hosting NSCA shoots.

If you were thinking of attending a shoot in Canada and not sure of Firearm Laws and Border Crossing procedures.
