Volunteer Work Days

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

1. Arlington has concrete scheduled for delivery on Friday, October 18, at 2:00 pm. We need 5-6 committed volunteers capable of doing heavy work to help pour the concrete slab for the pavilion on the Action Shooting Range. Arlington is an NRA Gold Medal Club and was awarded a $5,000 range grant to be used to erect an Action Shooting Pavilion at the AGC. If we have any experienced concrete guys it would be even better, but not necessary. We will also be pouring the Dave Boone Memorial Bench slab. High rubber boots and gloves will be required to work the concrete.

A few days afterwards, will send out another announcement requesting help to strip the forms and seed and straw the area to get some grass growing before winter to keep us out of the mud.

2. Sunday, October 13, the AGC Range Day is from 8:00 a.m. – noon. Arlington has always been a big supporter of the AGC Range Day. We help spruce up the range and help work several important projects at the AGC ranges.

You can earn a range badge credit for each hour you volunteer at the AGC. If you volunteer 40 hours, you can earn a free range badge. Please register when you get to the AGC, even if you don’t want to use your range badge hours. We ask club members to please donate any volunteer hours that you don’t want to use to the club. We use these hours to help club members.

Have a great week!

Thank you,

Rob
