NRA Gold Medal Club Award

The NRA Gold Medal Club award plaque was received earlier in the week.
In March, your treasurer incorrectly reported it was awarded for 2014 rather
than the correct 2015 award year. Go ahead, pat yourselves on the back again.

Big Weekend is planned for Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

We have a big weekend planned and we need your help on Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday, May 30th from 9:00 – 12:00, we will be building 30 competition target frames for the upcoming Libby Match. This will be the biggest Libby match in years. We are expecting as many as 75 competitors. Please help us and come out to the Juniors shed and lend a hand. These are simple frames to build. No tools or woodworking skills are required.

Sunday, May 31st from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., Arlington, Old Post and Greenbelt are teaming up to have a 3-Gun shoot at the AGC 200 yard range. This will be a good one. We will have our new steel targets out for the shoot. We will need help setting up the targets, so please come out at 8:15 a.m. We also need help with the food concession. We will have a lot of hungry and thirsty shooters. Mom Pat and Pat K. will be taking a class, so we need several good people to support the concession.

Thank you to everyone for volunteering your time to help your club. We could not possibly have the quality events we have without your help.

Have a great weekend!
