Early Silhouette Shooters in Alberta

Source: Collection of Match Results in possession of Francis & Mary Trace, Calgary, Alberta

Those shooter’s names marked with an ** competed in the 1st Silhouette Match held in Canada at the Buffalo Range, Sarcee Camp, Calgary, Alberta on June 14, 1975.

This was the first Silhouette match held in Canada.

This chart shows the year/years that a shooter was found in the match results that I have on hand. The chart does not include everyone who shot silhouette

between 1975 & 1991.  Many results of matches are missing from our files and some have only given the match winners. I have added a few names of shooters who I

personally know were active in the late 80's & early 90's. I have no match results showing their names. I know Francis & I shot silhouette every year from the

inception of the discipline. I quit competing about 1995 & Francis shot his last match at the age of 80 in 2008.

Compiled from our personal match results & memory by Mary Trace, Calgary, Alberta, April 24, 2018.

Mary Kearns Trace

1st Lady Silhouette Shooter in Canada

I began rifle shooting at the age of 13, in 1958, at the Calgary Rifle & Pistol Club. I was active at the club until I went overseas for my nurse’s training in 1964. I returned to Canada in 1970 and rejoined the club in the fall of 1973. I retired from all rifle shooting about 1995 having competed in Sporting Rifle, ISU Match Rifle & Air Rifle and Silhouette rifle. I also spent three years on the National Women’s team in ISU smallbore.

In late 1974 or early 1975 Gary Kelman & Lloyd Gilmour, both members of C.R.P.C. began promoting Silhouette shooting to club members and also Buffalo Club members. The first official match was held at Buffalo Range, Sarcee Camp, Calgary on June 14, 1975. Although I did not shoot in this match I did compete in the next one held September 20, 1975. This was a new sport to Canada and these were the first matches held in the country. I practiced, along with my husband, Francis Trace, almost from the time it started. I was the first women in Canada to enjoy this discipline and compete in matches.

It was not until 1977 that another women joined me to compete. This was Janet Trace, our niece, from Edmonton. These were all High Power matches. To the best of my knowledge the next two women followed in 1980, Faye Trace, our niece, and Janis Kelman, wife of Gary Kelman, both competing in the Smallbore matches. Since that time numerous Canadian women have joined the ranks.

Along with my husband, Francis, we have competed in silhouette matches locally, provincially, nationally and internationally. We have attended matches in Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and the Yukon Territory. I also attended a National Smallbore match in Sharon, Ontario. In addition Francis and I have traveled to matches in Montana & Idaho. It has been a wonderful experience and we have met so many wonderful people along the way.

I competed almost every year and finally retired from active shooting about 1995. In addition to shooting I have organized silhouette matches at the club level and was also Match Director for the 1989 & 1990 National Matches for the Rosebud Club at Homestead Range, Kananaskis Country.

I can’t say enough about how much enjoyment I have experienced from being involved with the shooting sports over all that time but my absolute favourite was High Power silhouette. There is a certain kind of thrill when you hear the “clang” and that old ram falls off his stand 500 meters away. A “five in a row” is a wonderful bonus! Smallbore just does not compare in any way for me. My memories through all those years will last a lifetime.
