Happy Thanksgiving!

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families!

I am thankful for our wonderful club members. You are Awesome!

A big thanks goes to Rick and Kyle for putting on an amazing 3-gun farewell shoot for Rebecca, Eric and their family and Paul. Kyle, the food was over the top. I don’t think many of us were able to actually walk away. I think waddling would be more accurate. Rick the shoot was a lot of fun for everyone. Thanks to everyone for pitching in to help with the shoot. Thank you to Eric and Rebecca for all you have done for our club. We wish you all the best and hope your new home is more than “OK” in Oklahoma.

Women On Target: Thank you to Wendy for an amazing job implementing Arlington’s Women On Target Program and to all of the Arlington volunteers who helped with the coaching and instruction. A special thanks goes to Jim for the wonderful gourmet food you made this event.

Juniors: I cannot say enough about our Juniors Program. Our coaches: Chris, David and Mike have done an outstanding job! Our Juniors parents are all contributing to the running of the club. This year, we just lost two of our Juniors: Wynn who is now at Ohio State with a rifle scholarship and Torrance, who is a Midshipman on the USNA rifle team. Our program is better than ever. Special thanks to Arlington Club members, who come out to support our frame build fundraisers. I want to also thank Bob for setting up the raffle for Arlington’s MidwayUSA foundation program for our Juniors.

Arlington remodels Memorial Hall: Mark worked almost daily to get Memorial Hall demolished and prepped for drywall. Rick had his guys come out and install drywall. Then came Saint Nic! Nic volunteered three days painting. Thank you very much for your contributions to the AGC, Memorial Hall looks terrific!

Arlington remodeling effort on the AGC rental properties: Arlington volunteers remodeled the first AGC rental property and we have a tenant with a two-year lease. A big thanks goes out to Alan, Jim, Barry, Pat and Jim, who toiled weekly to remodel the house. I also want to thank everyone who came out to spread mulch and plant flowers on the AGC rental property workday.

Arlington is now working on the second AGC rental property. A special thanks to Barry and Pat for helping strip wallpaper and prep the walls for painting.

Thanks to Pat and Rick who organized Arlington volunteers who made many improvements to the AGC on the AGC range days.

I want to thank you for coming out to support our Arlington club events this year. No other club is able to put on the events that we do. Thanks to Mom Pat and Bob for keeping everyone well fed at our club events.

Thanks to our club officers: Harold, Paul, Bob and Bill who have worked tirelessly to improve our club and make Arlington’s events so awesome.

We are very blessed to have club members like you.

Happy Thanksgiving!
