BRGFA Sporting Clay
Posted by Kelly Bourns 2021-12-13
A quick update on membership to the range for 2022 in relation to sporting clays. We will be switching to Sunday "members only" shooting starting in April and running to the long weekend in September. There will be a few Mondays that will be open to all to shoot. But, in order to shoot on Sundays you will have to purchase a general membership to BRGFA of $40.00 and purchase the applicable CCFR (Canadian Coalition for Firearms Rights) membership. The BRGFA membership form and instructions can be found on the BRGFA website @ https://brgf.ca/info/membership It is not required to purchase the range use fee, but if you wish to have access to the rifle/handgun range you will need to pay the fee and attend the new range orientation to receive your key and range card. I have to say the handgun range is awesome!
CCFR membership can be submitted along with your BRGFA general membership. If you have already purchased your CCFR 2022 membership, please provide your membership # for verification.
2022 Dates are in the works and should be posted very soon!
Please watch the sporting clays website www.brgfasportingclays.ca and your inbox for more updates!!

August 21st Super Sporting & Allen Cove Memorial Long Bird Challenge
Thank you to all that came out and enjoyed what ended up to be a fairly decent day!
Congratulations to Rick Lawler and James Lawler tied HOA on the Super Sporting with a score of 81!
The Allen Cove Memorial Long bird was shot by 17 participants and a few bought back in. It was a great competition! Lots of fun!
Very proud to announce Marc Lejeune is the Long Bird Champion for 2021, 100 YARDS!
He had the last few of us (Dale Bourns, Kelly Bourns, Austin Wasnie and Joe St. Mars) beat at 80 yards and then went on to hit at 90 yards and then an impressive shot at 100 yards! Congratulations Marc!

Dale and I wanted to let you all know that we lost a very close and dear friend and a fellow shooter on January 13th, 2021. (George Thomas) Allen Cove January 6th, 1940 - January 13th, 2021 passed away after a courageous battle with cancer. Our hearts are heavy, but the memories we have we will hold close. Al loved getting out to either St. Hubertus, Wpg Trap & Skeet and BRGFA as much as he could. He loved sporting clays and skeet, but often he would let you know how much he hated trap!
Dale and I spent a lot of time with Al, working out at the range, and in 2015 we practiced the entire spring preparing to travel to the World’s in Minnesota that year. Al loved competition and travelling out west, down south or just out to Brandon for a shoot.

Shooting with Jon Kruger
Al and Kelly loved to “gossip”! Like 2 old ladies, or as it was pointed out that they were like the two “old grumpy guys” in the balcony on the muppets. Keeping on top of what or who was doing what in the shooting community became a conversation Al and Kelly enjoyed to have, drove Dale crazy!
Pheasants Forever, Regina, SK MSCA MB Provincial 2020
Al’s passion was shooting, but his love was his family. He spoke about them often and worried about getting home to Loretta and first Kody and then Brady. He was so very proud of his son, Brian and his daughter Karen and loved his granddaughters to the moon and back and had a story about them every time we were out at the range.
We wanted to do something to honor Al’s memory and after much thought and most fitting…Al loved dropping targets…the further down he could get them the better! Last year we held the first Long Bird Challenge that was to become an annual event. This event for 2021 will become the Allen Cove Memorial Long Bird Challenge. The proceeds made from the event will go into training and education for youth and lady programs at BRGFA. Dale and I will be sponsoring the plaque that will remain at the BRGFA clubhouse and a trophy for the winner (s) of the competition. The winners of the event in 2020 will be the first to be added to the plaque.
"I am better for knowing you, better for having met you and better for having you as a dear friend and fellow shooter.
May you be as blessed in the next life, my friend, as I was in this life by knowing you.
Shoot ‘em up, Al"
