Alberta has many amazing and accomplished shooters in its community. As these shooters progress among the ranks to the top tier of our sport, a select few meeting strict criteria may be nominated to the APTA Hall of Fame. To recognize these shooters, a beautiful plaque is created to award them, and a duplicate remains in our Hall of Fame to honour them for years to come. To help with the cost of these, please Contact any of our Directors to donate today!
