Patrick Londero Sporting Clays Shoot at La Roue du Roy (Shoot Report)

A fun shoot.... 200 shooters!

The club is located in Hemmingford, Quebec. Fifteen minutes from the NY I-87 border crossing.

Smooth sailing driving into Canada. You do need a passport or enhanced drivers license to return to the USA, so something to think about if you thinking of crossing the border to attend a shoot. Keep your handguns at home, long guns only. You have to pay a fee for a 60 day permit if you don't have a Canadian Firearms License.

The clubs first shoot under new ownership. The clubhouse is almost completed, but several more weeks of work is needed to finish. I think on the first floor the only thing that is not new is the bar.

Was on the cool side and the wind picked up at times, but the sun was out....

Plenty of ammunition on hand if you needed to make a purchase.

Several gun companies were at the club with try it guns. Three skeet fields were used for that purpose.

The club has a podium (fancy 5-stand) and they used that for a side event.

A hunters field (decoys) was set up for the Epilepsy Foundation and shooters could pair up shooting clay targets from the sitting position and at the same time donate to a good cause. From what I saw it was very successful. I have a few shots of it in the video.

A nice lunch was had for $5.

16 stations.

Shotguns were given to class winners (shown at the end of the video). The part where there given out the guns is in French and as I don't speak French, your going to have to guess what is being said : ) The young lady winning a shotgun works as a trapper at Club L'Acadie. A club just southeast of Montreal (three Olympic bunkers). She also fills in where needed during shoots the club host.

Also, a number of random draw prizes were given out, to include cases of ammunition.
