The Atlantic Championships was held on September 1st, 2nd and 3rd, 2012 in
 New Brunswick at the Batouche Range on Base Gagetown.
The Atlantic Championships this year were very well organized by Daniel Chisholm with the help of John Holleran. Conrad Leroux did an excellent job of record keeping, bookkeeping and statistics. Thanks to all those who helped out and who worked behind the scenes to make this a very successful event. Twenty two shooters were in attendance from all three Maritime Provinces and also from "La Belle Province". Our thanks to the shooters who travelled from a distance and who added to the success of this event.
The weather also contributed in that we had two days of perfect shooting weather and only one range with some rain on Sunday.
Conrad has prepared a detailed spreadsheet of results which are available here
