August 2020 Newsletter

As the summer comes to a close, the CUSF clubs have been getting back out the range again to hone their skills for this year’s upcoming competitions. This month the University of Windsor Firearms Association (UWFA) and University of Calgary Firearms Association (UCFA) were back out on the shotgun fields smashing some clays, getting a jump start on the beginning of the school year.

The CUSF is moving forward with events in the 2020-21 school year, while ensuring our programs comply with provincial health regulations. Time to get back to the range and back to educating!

Partnership Highlights

Each month we recognize organizations and individuals who have been working with us to further sport shooting and firearms education across Canada. This month we are excited to announce that Cabela's has renewed their sponsorship of the CUSF for a second year!

Through their generous support we make shooting affordable, fun, and accessible for students across the country. Funding is also crucial for being able to deliver top notch programming through our Conservation, Women's and Shooting Clinics initiatives. Make sure you round up to support organizations like ourselves next time you are at Cabela's or Bass Pro!

Club Spotlight: CU Shotgun

The Carleton University Trap and Skeet team is one of two firearms related clubs at Carleton University. Known as CU Shotgun, the club is made up of a core group of dedicated students who are interested in becoming more proficient shotgun shooters. CU Shotgun’s aim is to provide students with the opportunity to compete against other Canadian Collage and University clubs, and one day to compete internationally.
CU Shotgun also aims to introduce new shooters and firearms enthusiasts to the shotgun sports by hosting events and giving the opportunity for individuals to participate in shotgun sports.The club meets once a week to practice with Coach Dean Herzberg, and individual team members are encouraged to get out to the range on their own as well. In the inaugural competition season for the Canadian University Shooting Federation (CUSF), CU shotgun had team members finish in First, Second and Third place of the skeet event! This past season the team was preparing hard and team members David Addison and Nathan Byerley were looking very competitive shooting their first 25 clays straight late last winter (congrats!). The team is hoping to continue this momentum into CUSF’s next skeet competition.

CU Shotgun has been an established club at Carleton University for since 2015 and thanks to CUSF organizing competitions, CU Shotgun now meets the requirements to become a competitive sports club in the Carleton University Athletics Department. With the school year kicking off soon CU Shotgun is excited to get going again with practices, competitions and events as soon as we can do so safely!

Smashy Smashy!”
