Back to the books!

Hope everybody has had a wonderful and shooting filled summer. The students sure have! There has been a variety of events throughout the country. Carleton University put on a collaborative Ottawa region exec range day (top). The idea was to bring out students that are starting clubs at Algonquin College and uOttawa so that they could meet fellow students and see how a range day is run! The U of C Firearms Association put on a Trap shoot for Fathers Day (bottom left). Can't imagine a better way to spend time with Pops then to break some clays. Most recently the CUSF collaborated with Ottawa region clubs to put on a booth in the local gun show (bottom right). We were very well received, and it was awesome to have such a great reception from so many of those in the community.

Now is an exciting time for clubs across the nation. If you aren't familiar, post-secondary's hold "Clubs Expo's", which are events where students can walk around and explore what clubs they may want to join for the coming semester. So far, lots of positive news: everyone's booths look fantastic! The Carleton Firearms Association and Carleton Shotgun Team shared a booth and managed to sign up over 400 students! Imagine the potential number of new shooters if every institution across the country was doing the same. Well, that's what we strive for! Things are definitely looking up in the Canadian firearms community.

There are a couple of upcoming events to be aware of: this weekend we will have a booth at the Edmonton Gun Show. Be sure to come find us if you're in the area! In addition, on September 29th we are having a CUSF Calgary Shoot and Social! This event is geared towards bringing the students at schools all around Southern Alberta together with the general firearms community in Calgary. It is open to everyone, and will feature a trap shooting and BBQ. Be sure to check out the sign up for more info and bring some friends!

New Clubs!

This summer has been busy, busy, busy out East! We've had 4 new clubs start up: University of Windsor, Wilfred Laurier, Concordia and University of Ottawa! 

That puts us at 14 officially, with many more to come! If you know someone who may want to start up a club point them our direction, we assist in a variety of ways and generally make it an easy, painless process.

2019 CUSF Programs

Our annual Trap and Skeet Tournament, the CUSF Fall Classic, is just around the corner. Held the 12th-20th of October we are hoping to fine tune our signup, smooth out the wrinkles, and have more competitive shooters than ever.

Additionally, our Fall Postal Program is due to start on the 1st of October, and run until the end of November. Any post-secondary student in Canada is allowed to participate!

Partnership Highlights

This month we would like to recognize and thank Cabela's Canada for sponsoring us through the Outdoor Fund! The Outdoor Fund helps non-profits like ourselves positively shape the future of conservation and sport shooting. Consider rounding up your purchase if you shop at Cabela's to support grassroots initiatives.

Club Spotlight: Lethbridge Firearms Club

The Lethbridge Firearms Club is a campus club located at Lethbridge College in Southern Alberta. With a school that focuses heavily on law enforcement programs, the founders thought it would be a great fit to start the club! The best thing about the club is that you don’t have to be in a law enforcement program to join, or have a firearms license!
We cater to everyone and anyone who is willing to learn! We joined the CUSF as a way to promote the shooting sports and shooting community to people across Canada. We believe that through the CUSF, we can educate students and grow the firearms community as a whole.
