Message from the APTA President
I hope you are all doing well and staying safe during this crazy time. Just a quick summary of the 2020 Fall Annual Meeting. First off, we voted on Rob Docherty going into the Hall of Fame and it was unanimously decided that the nomination be approved. Congratulations Doc!
There was a lengthy discussion on different recommendations for the Provincial trophy package. It was resolved that there would be no changes to the trophy package for 2021. The three club requirement for the All Stars Team will remain the same but it will not apply to the High catagory awards. We are going to try a New Shooter Mentorship program. An experienced shooter will help a new shooter through there first registered shoot. For example, guide them through the entry process, explain the squad board and banking system, and maybe even squad with them for their first event. Anyone interested in joining can let Jesse Smith know. There will be a contract between the APTA and the Host Provincial Club on expectations, requirements going forward. Regarding alternate sources of funding, there will be another gun raffle this year. The tickets are now printed and ready for sale.
Stay safe and healthy,
Brad Johnson, President of the APTA
Sad to announce the passing of Robert Brumwell on November 7th. Bert was a huge supporter of trap shooting in Alberta and will be deeply missed. Our condolences goes out to Heather and the family.
