We are in the depths of winter in Alberta and the only action in trapshooting is the winter chain shooters in Arizona. We did have the opportunity of honoring Art Peyton as he shot and hit, his 500,000 ATA target. Art is the third Albertan and third Canadian to hit this milestone, Trevor Dawe and Ron McConnell also are members of this half million club. Art did it in 24 years of shooting, which is amazing when one works out the time and effort this takes. Tiger and Don hosted a dinner at the Casa Grand club for the celebration, Art and Dianne bought steaks for everyone and a good time was had by all.
Unfortunately we also lost a long time Alberta shooter and APTA member when John Stoik passed away December 31. John was instrumental in the original relocation of the Edmonton gun club. He was a tireless worker at the Edmonton gun club and served as director and APTA secretary for over a decade.
For those who would like a chance to win a new Kolar Combo, Trevor Kuhn and I have tickets for this ATA raffle. Cost is $20 US and funds go to support the gun club fund, a worthy cause from which Medicine Hat and Calgary have received grants. I also have a limited number of tickets for the Hall of Fame gun raffle, a custom 50th anniversary Krieighoff combo. There will be 400 tickets sold at $100 US per ticket.
If you have questions, or wish to have something published in Trap and Field, please give me a call or let me know by e-mail. firstname.lastname@example.org.
