In lieu of the regular ATS Day, we were hosting Veritac’s DSTO course over the weekend.
9 Shooters joined the course including three ATS members.
It was very good to see the level of training of this group exceeded expectations.
As a result, we went far and beyond what previous DSTO courses were able to offer, while keeping everyone safe.
This was the last Veritac course this year. Regular ATS will resume starting this month.
The next ATS day is 28 November; Range 3, $20 drop in fee. Please RSVP, if you plan on attending.
The tentative date for the Shivworks Edged Weapons Overview course is still TBC, depending on the international travel restrictions dictated by our Ottawa and Victoria Masters, and instructor availablility.
For next year, ATS is exploring some potential training opportunities;
