Bust Fest Sunday / Don’t Forget To Move Your Clocks Forward One Hour

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

We have a Bust Fest Scheduled for this Sunday, March 8th from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. The weather looks like it will be terrific. Come on out and have some fun. The ammo requirement for the trap range is: Target Loads: #7.5, #8 and #9 shot with 1200 Feet per second or less are allowed at the AGC due to the proximity of Marriottsville Road. The cost is $10 per shooter to help pay for the birds we break.

The AGC is sponsoring the attached CUTTHROAT Match trap shoot on April 18th (click on the link to download the flyer). This looks like it will be a lot of fun. This match will be on the same day as our Joint 3-gun shoot with Greenbelt, but there shouldn’t be a problem for anyone who wants to do both events. You will already have your shotgun there for the 3-gun anyway.

I hope you are all staying warm. Please be safe when walking or driving on the ice and snow.

Hi Folks –
