April 2019 Update

Welcome to the April edition of the Canadian Shooting Federation Newsletter. Now that it's getting nicer out we can start getting outdoors! The Carleton Firearms Association (CFA) had an event with the student Conservative group (top). Pictured is Pierce, a CFA exec, showing a new shooter how to safely use his GSG-15. The event went very smoothly, and Carleton Firearms hopes to get the on-campus Liberal and NDP student groups out to the range in the future!

Lethbridge College and the University of Calgary got together for a first ever combined shoot at the Lethbridge Fish and Game Association range. The beautiful big bore range (left) clocks in at 300 yards. We hope to see more club interaction in the future! It's a great way to connect students to their fellow shooting enthusiasts that they wouldn't necessarily meet otherwise.

Hopefully you got a chance to read the Calibre article (right) that was published about our group. Note that since writing we have increased our number of teams to 10! Big thanks to Timothy Fowler for his very positive and informational article on the sport shooting clubs that are forming across the country.

Calgary Gun Show Giveaway

Big thanks to all those who stopped by our booth and had a chat. Met some amazing people from around Canada who were very supportive of our initiative. Congrats to Jordan Byerley who was our lucky winner! The proceeds were split between ourselves, and the Mount Royal and U of C clubs. As we are a non-profit, all of the proceeds go towards supporting the other clubs across Canada, running our shooting leagues, and starting new clubs wherever we can!

Shotgun Tournament Results Announced

The first ever CUSF shotgun tournament wrapped up at the end of March, and we are excited to announce the winners! First overall in Skeet is Mason McHugh, from Carleton. He was followed by Kelvin Jiang and Nathan Byerley for Runner up and 3rd. Colleen Blayney won the Ladies, and Carleton Shotgun was the Team Champions.

In Trap, Ana Tsementzis from the University of Guelph was our champ! Runner up was D'Arcy Boardman with 3rd going to Nickolas Leipold. Ana was also our Ladies Champ, with the Team Title going to Guelph.

Overall we had 28 competitors from 4 schools, with 5 events running in 2 provinces. Can't wait to see how many we can get next fall! Head on over to our website to see the full results.

Partnership Highlights

We would like to thank the CCFR and CSSA, who have been nothing but supportive! It's great to have organizations who want to help grow the shooting sports among young adults. 

Both organizations have helped distribute information about our organization through their newsletter, and have offered assistance to help CUSF in various ways. Thanks for supporting the next generation of shooters!

Club Spotlight: AMS Shooting Sports at UBC

AMS Shooting Sports at UBC was founded in 2017 with the goal of introducing UBC students to action shooting. Since then they have brought close to 100 students out to the Port Coquitlam District Hunting and Fishing Club (PCDHFC).

The club has organized two RPAL courses at UBC which both sold out, producing a dozen proud new student firearm owners.
In 2018 the club organized a safe firearms handling and dry fire training event at UBC with deactivated air pistols. This familiarized new members who had not shot before with range etiquette and grip technique.

In 2019 we partnered with the BC Skeet Association to provide our members with formal skeet instruction. Several members who had never fired a shotgun before are now picking up doubles with ease. Our flagship event for spring 2019 was speed steel at PCDHFC. We booked two pistol bays and held a full day speed steel competition featuring a variety of both rimfire and centerfire pistols and rifles.
