October Arlington Newsletter

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

We have an full schedule this coming October

Saturday, October 8th Emergency Frame Build – from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at our Club shed. The AGC is running out of target frames. We need to have an emergency frame build to meet the demand. This is a really fun activity and gives you a chance to help our Juniors program. The frames are built on an assembly line basis. No tools or special skills are required. Each person performs one or two simple tasks. Club members who help with the frame build can buy a frame at cost.

Sunday, October 9th, Steel Plate Pistol Shoot from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. – This is a fun shoot where club members shoot at steel plates at various distances. Standard calibers only, no magnum rounds are allowed.

Wednesday, October 12th, Club Meeting from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. – in Memorial Hall. We will discuss upcoming events with the club and at the AGC. There will be a swap meet at the back of the room. Bring any items that you want to sell, trade or give away. There will also be a show and tell time for club members to share their latest acquisition or interesting items with club members.

Saturday, October 15th, Frame Build – Cancelled due to the October 8th build.

Sunday, October 16th – AGC Range Day – The AGC will be having its range maintenance day. Arlington always makes a good showing of volunteers. Come out and give a hand and earn 4 hours of range badge credit towards your 2017 range badge.

Sunday, November 6th, Bust Fest on Trap 1 from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. The cost is $15.00 for all the birds you want to break. This event is very popular. Club members can either learn how to shoot trap or have fun breaking several birds at a time. It is a great opportunity to try out different shotguns. The AGC restricts shotgun ammunition at the trap range to Target load only with #7.5, #8 or #9 shot with a velocity of no greater than 1200 Feet Per Second (FPS).
