    I talked to the manager of Club L'Acadie today and was informed that a date for the Canadian had been set, but at this time he did not have a Flyer.

    July 14-20, 2008

    Club L'Acadie - Quebec

    Three Operational Bunkers

    I will post a Shoot Flyer when I get my hands on one.

    The third bunker just went operational. One of the three is dedicated for Bunker Doubles.

    The club is maybe 40 minutes northeast of the New York I-87 border crossing.

    Downtown Montreal is 20 minutes from the club, depending on traffic.

    * If you fly you will need a Passport to re-enter the states. If driving, only Drivers License (with photo) and Birth Certificate required.

    Good stuff - I cannot make it this year, which is a pity because it's so close to home. I'll try for next year for sure!

    Thanks Joe - please post pictures.

    Joe, this past weekend, while shooting bunker @ Ontelaunee Rod & Gun Club (Allentown, PA), a Canadian shooter told me that the Canadian Championships are "closed". I interpreted that to mean *only* Canucks can take part. What's your understanding? Obviously, U.S. Shooters can't win anything, but can they shoot? What do you think? -John Wolfington

    I plan on making a run up and taking photos...

    Update: I emailed Kamil A Assaleh and he said it is an open shoot.

    He provided me the shoot flyer for posting.

    Americans and other countries shooters welcomed!

    Hey guys...

    This shoot is the same time as the US Nationals in Colorado Springs. Why go to Canada when you can go to our own shoot?

    Shooters may not wish to travel to Colorado (time/cost) and also not everyone is interested in shooting the nationals.

    As the L'Acadie club is only 20 minutes from downtown Montreal, it also makes for a nice vacation. Make sure you check out the casino and old Montreal.

    A run up to Quebec city would not be out of the question.

    I don't speak French and have no problem getting around. U.S. money is at par.

    Crossing the border is no big deal.

    I shot skeet in Ontario last weekend. Shot practice trap at the L'Acadie club this past Wednesday.

    No problems at the border, entering or departing.

    If driving, all you need is drivers license (photo) and birth certificate for ID.

    That is the minimum for both Canada and US. This will change for entering the U.S. in 2009.

    If flying into the U.S., you need a passport.

    If you need help with directions let me know. I assume the club has good directions posted, but have not checked.
