Arlington Events for April 2018

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

We have a lot of events for April.

April 1st. We had to cancel our 3-gun shoot for April 1st due to it falling on Easter Sunday. The AGC calendar rolls our events over from year to year. The Easter Holiday changes where it falls on the calendar from year to year. Maybe it was an April Fools joke on us this year….

Tuesday Night Steel Season begins April 3rd and runs through the end of October. It is held every Tuesday from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. on the 200 – yard Range. Keep an eye on your email if the weather is threatening. We will not have the event if it is wet or raining.

Saturday, April 7th, Fundraiser Frame Build from 9:00 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. at the AGC Maintenance Building. This is an important fundraiser that our club does to support our Juniors Program. Please come out and give us a hand this Saturday. Our Juniors Program has grown a lot and we need to buy more equipment.

No tools or skills are required. We build the frames on an assembly line basis, where each person performs one or two simple tasks. It is a lot of fun and everyone leaves with a good feeling, because they helped our Juniors.

Sunday, April 8th, 3-Gun Shoot on the 200-yard range from 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. The Safety Brief is at 8:30 a.m., but Please come out early to lend a hand setting up the steel.

Sunday, April 8th- The British are Coming!!!! Arlington will be hosting a fun shoot with six folks from the UK. The shoot begins at 2:00 p.m. at the Pistol Range. Please bring out some pistols and ammo to share with our friends from across the pond. They do not have an opportunity to shoot in their country and greatly appreciate Arlington’s offer to allow them to have some fun.
