Tye Ikeda Wins Silver & Olympic Quota in Argentina

Alberta was well-represented in the 50m 3P event in Buenos Aires, Argentina last weekend with Tye Ikeda qualifying for finals and shooting his way to a silver medal and an Olympic quota! This will join the quota already won by Shannon Westlake of Ontario to send another Canadian athlete to compete in Paris in rifle events. The final was streamed on an Argentinian website and you can view it below. Good luck to all our athletes who are competing this weekend in Rio at the final Olympic qualification event!

Canadian Junior National Air Gun Championship Results

Here’s the results from the recent Canadian National Junior Championships. Alberta did well.


Congratulations to Aanum Grewal for a bronze medal in ladies air and Adheesh Patnaik for a 6th place finish in men’s air. The same two achieved a 6th place finish in the team event.
I also congratulate two Alberta subjuniors ( Eileen Choi and Ashi Saxena)  who participated in the event. That was a courageous thing to do and a great learning experience for them.
The next National Junior Championship will be held in Saskatoon the last part of March 2025.
That will be a team event with 4 persons representing their province. ( 2 rifle, male/female and 2 pistol male/female)
The Alberta rifle team for 2025 will be chosen from those posting the best average over their best 3 recognized matches between now and March of 2025. IE, They can shoot as many matches as they want and use their best 3 for the total.
I encourage all juniors to get started competing at authorized matches.

2024 ASRA Membership Renewal

Hi All

It is imperative you obtain your membership before Dec 31st if you plan on doing any shooting activity. Payment information and membership form distribution information at the bottom of the form. The current insurance covered by your membership expires Dec 31. 2023 After that date you no longer have insurance coverage under the ASRA membership.

This year the cost of insurance dramatically increased so the new membership fee reflects that increase.
Because the current coverage is by individuals we can no longer offer a discount for families.

I wish you all a happy New Year and a great 2024 shooting season.
