The Winter Classic is always a well attended shoot regardless of the weather. Shooters come out to enjoy the last shoot of the year and a cup of our famous homemade Hot Apple Cider.
Participants and other shooters also share in the joy of Christmas spirit, by being a part of our Annual Christmas toy Drive.

Annual Christmas Toy Drive
This year's toy drive was a huge success!!
We received approximately $3000.00 worth of toys & cash.
The toys are collected from our members, clients and
the Calgary Fire Fighters, through their annual toy collection.
A huge thank you to Gord and Joanne Robb.
It's become quite a tradition and a way to give back to our community. Thank you to everyone who participated to make this effort so incredible. This year all donations were made to the Carstairs Lions Club for their
2022 Christmas Hamper efforts.

A TALE OF TWO FITTINGS
AUTHOR: ROB RIDLEY, COMPETITOR

Manufacturers don’t make shotguns fitted for dwarves.
40 Years ago, I’d never heard the words “shotgun” and “fit” in the same sentence. Seemed my face and
shoulder were always bruised and sore and a day hunting with magnum loads would sometimes even draw blood. Of course, none of that was enough to keep me away.
Years later, our own level III instructor, Luther Cutts introduced me to gun fit and I started reading everything I could find. I realized that all my shotguns were too long for me from trigger to butt.
