The SFC and the Shooting Community wishes to honour the memory of Edward Shaske (December 20 1927 December 28 2021)

Ed was a highly accomplished trapshooter and Olympian, competing in the 1969 Olympics in Mexico City. He blazed the trail for Canada’s Olympic trapshooting team and was recognized by the Shooting Federation of Canada for his outstanding contributions to the sport of trapshooting in Canada. He was Coach of the Canadian Olympic Trapshooting Team and took the team to the Olympics in Los Angeles (1984), Seoul (1988), and Barcelona (1992). Ed was also the coach for the Olympics in Moscow (1980). Ed was a gold medalist in several Provincial, Canadian and World Trapshooting Championships. In 1982 Ed was invited to participate in a trapshooting event with members of the British Royal Family and the King of Greece. Trapshooting took Ed and Lucy to almost every corner of the earth and allowed them to make friends in each country they travelled to. The trapshooting community became their second family, and over the course of all these years, they continued to maintain close friendships with many of the Canadian trapshooters and others from around the world.
