Super Sporting Shoot @ Club L'Acadie

After an absence of sporting clays shoots at the club for several years a handful of shooters got together and put on a 75 target Super Sporting shoot at Club de tir L'Acadie.  

Three (3) courses with twenty-five targets each was the setup.  Targets for every level of shooter. 

Windy and overcast (and a drizzle or two).  Cool temperatures for this time of year.  The sun did make an appearance.

The shoot ran smoothly and finished quicker then anticipated. 

A limited number of shooters allowed due to the format and slots quickly filled.



Hats off to the crew that put the L'Acadie shoot together and word is a second may be planned this year, but....

Ten years ago in the part of Quebec that I routinely travel there was five clubs that held sporting clay shoots of some sort.  All fun, none NSCA, but a chance to participate at the tournament level.

Outside this Super Sporting shoot all clubs have ceased holding shoots.  The Montreal Skeet Club once hosted the World Police/Fire games. I think they no longer have a course.  Club Roue du Roy held shoots that saw shooters who'd travel for several hours to attend and not uncommon to see the 16 station course sold out for both the AM and PM rotation.

Hoping for a better future...
