WOW! What a Provincials, nice to see some first time provincial shooters. Some impressive streaks ended and some APTA history making feats were accomplished. Brad Johnson's 93 in the handicap gave him the HOA and handicap title. This completed the APTA grand slam (SIngles, Doubles, Handicap, and HAA in any  year)  and add the HOA title on that and only four other Alberta shooters have accomplished it since 1959) (Ron McConnell 1993 Allan Day 1997 Neil Burbidge 2001 Larry Ivany 2014) Brad's three year singles reign, a streak that saw him miss only three targets out of 600 ended when Shawn McNeil's second half 100 straight in the gusting wind gave him a 198. Shawn McNeil's four year reign atop the HOA board was ended by Brad's first HOA title 939/1000. The HAA title went to Shawn McNeil 378/400 and a strong showing 370/400 by Ian Tilley gave him runner up in HAA. Lynn Smith and Niklas Tebbs both retained their titles in Lady 1 and Junior and this years Hall of Fame inductee Art Peyton claimed the Doubles title with a 97/100

Next tournament up is July 31 in Olds starting at noon.
