Arlington Rifle & Pistol Club August Newsletter

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

It’s hard to believe it is almost August! We have a busy month scheduled.

Every Tuesday Night – Tuesday Night Steel Shoots from 5:15 p.m. – 8:15 p.m. at the 200-yard range – Paul has been running our Tuesday Night Steel Shoot events. These are action shoots with AR-15 rifle and standard caliber pistol. The event is very popular. Bring at least 100 rounds of non-armor piercing .223 or 5.56 caliber rifle and at least 100 standard caliber pistol rounds. Warning: If you bring more ammo, you will probably use it!

** Friday, July 31st, Frame build prep – from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. We need some help cutting the wood to prepare for Saturday’s frame build. Please come to the Juniors shed and lend a hand.

Saturday, August 1st – Fundraiser Frame Build – we will be having a frame build from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. in the Lower Barnes Range House. No tools or wood working skills are required. We work on an assembly line basis, where each person performs one or two simple tasks. It is a lot of fun and all proceeds go to our Juniors Program.

Saturday, August 8th, Bust Fest, – from 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. – We will be having our very popular Bust Fest trap shoot. This is a very popular shoot where each shooter keeps shooting 1 – 2 birds at a time. It is a lot of fun and a great way to learn how to shoot trap. Ammo requirements: First, bring a lot of ammo. You will use it. The AGC requires Trap Shooters to shoot Standard Target Loads with #7.5, #8 or # 9 size shot and have a velocity of 1200 Feet Per Second or less. Most target loads for shotgun fall in this range. Ammo is available for sale if you don’t have time to get any. The bust fest is also a good opportunity to try out different shotguns to figure out what kind you want to buy next.

Wednesday, August 12th Club meeting from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. in Memorial Hall. It is a great opportunity to find out current and future club events. Bring your show and tell items that you would like to share with the club. If you have anything you want to sell, give away or trade, the swap area in the back of the room is available.

Saturday, August 15th – Frame Build from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. In the Lower Barnes Range House- we will be checking over and refurbishing the Competition target frames. We will be having another tournament on August 30th and want to make for sure we are ready. No skills are required. We will have all of the tools that are needed.

Saturday, August 22nd – Steel Plate Rifle Shoot – from 8:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the 100-yard range. We will be shooting steel plates with centerfire rifle. If anyone is interested, you can earn your Winchester Marksmanship Certificate and Patch(s).

Sunday, August 30th – Small Bore 3 position match from 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the Barnes Range – Arlington is sponsoring it’s first 3–position small bore Juniors match. We are expecting 50–60 shooters. This match will go a lot faster than the Libby. Please come out and help us. We need a lot of hands to assist with the set up, running and taking down our shoot.

Thank you all very much to all of our volunteers! We could not possibly have the variety and quality of programs that our club puts on without your help.

Have a wonderful August!

We build the frames on an assembly line. Each person performs one or two simple tasks. No special skills or tools are required. We will be building frames behind the Juniors shed on the Barnes Multipurpose Range.

**If you are available this Friday, we could use some help cutting the wood at the Juniors shed around 11:00 a.m. to get it ready for the frame build.

Reminder:

We recommend you bring “at least” 100 rounds of rifle, 100 rounds of pistol, and a box of 25 rounds of shotgun ammo. We often have a free shoot after the program, so bringing some extra ammunition is always a good idea.
