October Recap & Events for the Remainder of 2014

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

Wow, we have been busy over the past month!

October, we had three club shoots:

Our steel plate pistol shoot topped off with a stake shoot and toy and stuffed animal shoot on the 12th.

The 2 Gun shoot with Greenbelt on October 25th was a huge success. We had a lot of fun knocking down steel plates with rifles and pistols. Greenbelt comes up with different things to do each time. They are a nice bunch of guys.

On October 25th, The Action Pistol Proof of Concept pistol shoot run by our club member Paul, was fantastic. He ran the shoot like it was a training program. He did a soup to nuts program starting with safety and migrating to shooting and moving safely while engaging steel targets. We had people of all abilities in the group and everyone had a great time and improved their shooting skills.

On November 1st, we had another Proof of Concept pistol shoot and like the previous week, it was also a huge success.

November 2nd, we had our charity wobble trap shoot, benefiting the Little Sisters of the Poor, St. Martin’s home for the elderly. We donated 4 cardboard boxes of food and $100.

We want to give a special thanks to Pat (Mom Pat) who has been handling the food concession for us at our club shoots. Pat and Bob always have their gourmet chili, brat wurst, hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie trays, fruit, cookies and cupcakes. We are all enjoying the shoots a lot more thanks to the wonderful food she prepares for us.
