19th Canadian Open Sporting Clays Championship @ Oshawa

Oshawa Skeet and Gun Club (Oshawa, Ontario).

The club is maybe 30 minutes from the 401.

Windy around the clubhouse (at the top of a hill) but the main course (down the hill), at many stations no wind to speak of.....

A nice turnout.

A practice field setup, as well as Make the Break.  A very nice kitchen.  I think the lady working the grill has been at the club forever.

Best viewed at Full Screen (Sunday)

A fair course and nothing set to beat up shooters.

I ran into shooters that I saw at Club L'Acadie at a previous shoot who I thought were from the Montreal area, but turned out they lived near Quebec city.  One heck of a drive....

A shooter came up to me and it turned out I meant his son and wife the previous day at the Ontario Provincial Trap Shoot (The Hamilton Gun Club).  

The Gun Dealer was at the club.  What an impressive set up in regard to firearms for sale and other shooting supplies (and gun repair).  If you ever hear they will be at a shoot, they alone make it worth the trip.

Many years in the past I use to be able to stand on the skeet fields and see the buildings of Toronto in the distance and looking to the north the road that lead to the local casino (The casino has an excellent buffet).  No longer do you have the view, as the trees have grown taller.  Looking to the south you can still see Lake Ontario, but not like in the past.


Compared to my initial drive to the Ontario Provincial Trap Shoot where I had to drive through Toronto (club is on the west side of Toronto), my drive home was 6 hours (heading east), but not the traffic I'd seen the previous two days and relatively stress free.  

Coming and going, no traffic at the border crossings and no issues in regard to firearms and ammunition, as my paperwork has long been in order.  No secondary inspections experienced.
