Club members with pickup trucks are needed for this weekend!!!

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

Howard County Executive, Allan Kittleman has agreed to donate his used political signs to our Juniors. There are a lot of them and we desperately need them for our Juniors fundraiser program. I need help this weekend to pick them up from the Kittleman’s farm in Howard County. It isn’t too far from the AGC range. We need a lot of helping hands and people with pickups to help move the backboards. We have a frame build scheduled for Saturday morning at our club shed. If anyone can help me get them around noon on Saturday or on Monday, Veterans Day, I would be very grateful! We don’t want to loose out on this opportunity.

Thank you,

Rob

Berm Update

Members,

Situation: Two of the Hesco barrier walls are built so far. The AGC is renting a four wheel bucket loader for the month. We are trying to capitalize on the rental time to keep costs down. It is cheaper to keep the loader for a month than rent by the week. For those that have been out there filling barriers, you can attest to how much more efficient the large loader performed.

The AGC (Lee and James) is working to get lane 4 cut and leveled with the dozer this week, drain pipes installed and pallets of barriers placed for a possible work day this Saturday. We are also working to get more dirt. If the stars align, I should be able to send out a notification on Thursday for a Saturday berm work day.

With so many points of failure to plan for such an event, I would like to say thanks for your patience in the last minute notifications and to those that can and have participated. You have been a part of the largest volunteer workforce project in cost, size and scope at the AGC.

Berm Work this Saturday Typo

Members,

Due to old age, RF and lead exposure over the years, I put 3 Oct instead of 3 Nov in the last post for the this weekend’s berm work day. Thanks for your understanding. If you show up on 3 Oct, you get extra credit and have to teach me how you travelled back in time.

Saturday Hesco barrier work

Members,

We are working this Saturday, 3 Oct at 0800hrs, on the action shooting range. As we stated previously, we request able bodied volunteers that will be getting in an out of Hesco barriers to move and tamp dirt with shovels as well as standing up barriers. All of this is physically intense work for most folks. Please check with your physician before you think of coming out to help. Other notes: You will get muddy and dirty. Wear boots and not your Sunday’s best clothing. Bring your favorite shove, gloves and a folding ladder if you have one. We were out there for 8 plus hours at the last work event. This Saturday will probably be no exception. Its Ok if you can only come out for a few hours. Thank you in advance for those that make it out.

Berm Work Day This Saturday Canx

Members,

This weekend’s berm work day is cancelled. We are having weather and equipment availability issues. We apologize for all the back and forth on this project but this is indicative of an all volunteer run project. It is nobody’s fault. We are looking to have a Berm work day on 3 November. I will send out updates as we get closer to the event.

Also, due to the weather being forecast for 100% rain this Saturday, there will be no action shooting event.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.
