To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

There will be a meeting to discuss the new action shooting bay design on February 10th from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. in the Lower Barnes Range House. The goal of the meeting is to formulate a general design concept for the action shooting bays at the AGC. This meeting will begin the process of writing the design requirements for a Shooting Bay Construction Plan. No timeline or costs will be discussed.

There will be 1-2 representatives from all interested shooting discipline committees and interested clubs. I know we have club members who compete at various ranges throughout the area in a variety of disciplines. Please come to the meeting if you do to help. This is our opportunity to ensure that our action shooting bay design will meet the requirements of the sport you participate in with all of the good features and none of the flaws you have seen at other ranges.

Thank you,

Reminder: Bust Fest Sunday, January 21st from 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. on Trap 4

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

We have a bust fest Sunday. Please either bring a box of clays or pay $15, which is the cost of a box of clays that we buy from the AGC, to shoot all day at our bust fest. The AGC requires that we use target load ammunition with #7.5, #8 or #9 shot with a velocity of 1200 Feet Per Second (FPS) or less. You can find this ammo at most Walmart stores. This is a very popular shoot. If you have never shot trap before, it is a great opportunity to learn how and try out different shotguns. It is a lot of fun.

Have a great weekend!
