RECENT NEWS

 May 24 th

     Congratulations to Barry Johnston on his first HOA win at the Edmonton gun club 550/600. Having only shot for Two seasons and coming out ahead of Art Peyton, Dave Shiers, Rod Smith, and Ken Kupsch  all shooters who have won multiple HOA events last season  is not easy  19 shooters attended the event with two shoot offs.  The first shoot off being between Darin Schuller and Gill Navkaran for Event 5 singles, with Darin edging a win 23/21.  The second shoot off was between Art Peyton and Barry Johnston for Event 6 Handicap, this shootoff went two rounds with Art being the winner by two birds.  

 

May 10th

   The first shoot of the spring saw cooler weather but no rain as predicted by the old reliable weather forecast. lol    The weather forecast definitely saw fewer numbers at Holdworth / Nattrass shoot and it was only fitting that a northern lady won the the first singles event with a 97 showing the boys how its done.  Congratulations Lynn Smith.   Apta got to welcome Sehaj Gill and Rui teixeira to their first ATA compeition it is nice to see new shooters. Saturday  Handicap was won with a 96 by Ali Chraibi    Doubles winner was Jesse Smith a 95   Day two started off with a tie in Doubles Jesse Smith and Lorne Umsheid tied with 94s    the Singles had Mike Cain shooting a 98    handicap Jesse Smith with a 95      HOA jesse Smith 565      It should be noted the Sunday weather saw a dark black cloud cover Calgary but with a blue sky to the south gave one of the best backgrounds i have ever seen.  The orange targets stood out against the black sky and if you were able to hit them you were treated to a fireworks like display of orange chips flying everywhere   it was really neat

 

Feb 21/22 

 Congratulations to Robyn Bourassa on her strong showing in the final handicap finishing with a 93 the high score among Albertans.  Art Peyton picked up a lot of All American points during the spring Grande he finished tied for tenth overall with a 1045/1100 for 95% and a top the board in the VII catagory HOA great shooting Art.

APTA LEAGUE

  1. The APTA league will run from the week of May 15th, 2022 for 6 weeks.
  2. There will be 5 shooters per team. Any shooter may shoot on multiple teams but must pay a separate league fee for each team.
  3. Each shooter on a team will shoot 25 targets from the 16 yard line for a total of 125 targets. The team's 16 yard total score will determine the team’s handicap yardage (refer to the Handicap Chart below). Each shooter on a team will then shoot 25 targets from the team’s handicap yardage for a total of 125 targets. Handicap yardage is only valid for one week, will be re‑established each week based on the team’s 16 yard total score for that week and where a shooter is absent, the score of the spare or the absent shooter’s previous week’s score will be used, as outlined in 5 below.
  4. If a team is participating in another league with the same structure as the APTA league (ie. at least 125 targets from 16 yards and at least 125 handicap targets shot from a handicap yardage that is the same as if determined using the Handicap Chart below), the team can submit the scores from the other league. If the other league is more than one round of singles and one round of handicap per week, the scores from the first round of singles and the first round of handicap are the scores that will be submitted to the APTA league. Any shooter shooting on multiple teams in the APTA league can submit the same scores for all teams.
  5. A spare can be used if a shooter is unable to attend one or more weeks. Alternatively, a team may submit the absent shooter's 16 yard score and handicap score from the previous week, with a penalty of two targets deducted from the handicap score.
  6. Each club will decide which evening they want to throw targets for the league and the cost of targets and shells will be each club's business.
  7. Scores for each week are to be submitted by Thursday night of that week so we can get them posted on the website. Please submit scores to Jesse Smith at lynn.jess3@hotmail.com or text it to 780-523-6032.
  8. After 3 weeks of shooting the league will split into an “A” & “B” side based on total team scores for the first three weeks. Team standings at the end of the league will be based on total team scores for all 6 weeks of the league.  The winning team from the “A” side and the “B” side will each win 5 cases of shells. Ties will be decided by a count-back to scores from previous weeks.  All remaining teams will be put into a random draw to win 5 cases of shells.  If there is larger participation than anticipated APTA will consider adding additional awards.
  9. The league fee will be $20/shooter for a total of $100/team. Cheques for fees are to be made payable to the Alberta Provincial Trapshooting Association and sent to Jim Thomson 43 Discovery Ridge Mount SW, Calgary AB T3H 5G3 along with your team’s name and the names of the team’s members.
  10. Everyone is welcome to participate! This is a fun league and these targets will not be registered.
