The APTA has added this completed careers section on our site to honour Albertan shooters who have passed. This page will serve as a an annual compilation where the fallen shooters will be remembered, and links to services, and obituaries can be found.

During the final Sunday of our Provincial tournament, we hold an annual "Flash-Target" ceremony to recognize the many fine people that we have enjoyed our past time with. After a moment of silence, one or more members are chosen to join the firing line to shoot for their fallen friend. If you know of any Alberta shooters that have passed, please let our secretary know, so they may be added here, and to this memorial event.
