Thank you for all the support you have given to the club this year. Please let me know if you have any Range Badge Credits that you will not be using. You can donate these credit hours to our club. The donated hours will go to club members who could use a hand. I know a lot of you donate a lot of your time to the AGC and don’t want range badge credit, but please register your time for this coming year so we can use the hours to help our club members who could use a hand.

Best Wishes in the New Year to you and your families!

Thank you,

Rob

Hesco Berm Work Weekend

Members,

I have been informed that the weekend of December 15th is going to be a Hesco barrier work weekend. Yes, you heard it correctly. Both Saturday and Sunday 0800 to the end of the day, each day. The goal is to get barrier 4 installed in its entirety and the 3 foot top barriers installed on as many of the completed 7ft tall barriers as possible in two days.

The AGC will have everything prepped as usual. They are renting an excavator this time around because it will be needed to fill the 3ft barriers on top of the 7ft ones already filled.

Once again, we are looking for able bodied (not broken) and motivated individuals to stand up barriers as well as hop in and out of barriers to move dirt to the corners between loads from the heavy machinery. I have to apologize in advance if any of your muscles get used and for the slight soreness the following day. Please bring your favorite shovel, gloves and anything to make yourself comfortable to get the job done. Lunch will be provided by the AGC and you will get range badge credits.

This will be our last push for work on the barriers before the spring hits. Hopefully the weather will hold. Thanks in advance for your support.

Sad ARPC member news

Rob Cowan’s father, Henry Shaw Cowan Jr passed away on November 30. Henry was a WW2 veteran and a 44 year member of ARPC. Henry introduced Rob to the club when Rob bought his first AR many years ago. Please keep Rob and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

ARPC Juniors Giving Tuesday Reminder

As you know our Junior’s shooting team, Arlington Rifle & Pistol Club Juniors Shooting Team, ID # R5634 has a team endowment with the MidwayUSA Foundation, a public charity that helps fund youth shooting teams. This endowment helps offset many costs that are associated with a shooting team.

We are asking you and other community members to donate to that endowment on Giving Tuesday, which will be matched!* Every donation helps ensures the future of our shooting team because our endowment will be there forever! Each year, our team is eligible for a cash grant from the endowment to pay for ammunition, travel, uniforms, targets, entry fees and more. Here are a few more reasons we think it’s a great and local cause to support on Giving Tuesday.

  • – Your tax-deductible donation benefits OUR Arlington youth shooting team.
  • – 100% benefits OUR team; the MidwayUSA Foundation keeps nothing for its operations.
  • – A Match! Your contribution will be matched, thanks to the MidwayUSA Foundation’s Matching

    Program, which is funded by Larry and Brenda Potterfield!

  • – A tax deduction. You will receive a gift receipt from the Foundation for your tax records.
  • – Safe, secure, easy to give online from anywhere to OUR team.

    We appreciate any contribution you can make and you can do so online, through the MidwayUSA Foundation website or this link “https://www.midwayusafoundation.org/team-profile/?id=R5634” will take you right to our team page where you can click ‘Donate Now.’ Thank you for supporting our team!

Happy Thanksgiving to our Arlington family,

May you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thank you for your friendship and support to our club!
