The ARL FX Chapter is not a commercial facility, we allow the use of our facilities by non-profits, youth groups and our members.
For chapter members, any group larger than your immediate family (living in the same household), you will need to get approval from our Board of Directors. This is only done at a Board of Directors meeting, which are held the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30 PM at the Chapter Field House.
IMPORTANT: All trash should be cleared and removed. Do not burn cans or bottles. You must clean up after use of the chapter grounds/facilities.
For Immediate Family Facility Use requests, no Group Activities Permit is needed. Please check the chapter calendar to make sure the date(s) is open, then send email to firstname.lastname@example.org to have your request approved and placed on chapter calendar.
You can check our calendars at http://arlingtonfairfax-iwla.org/Calendar.php to see if the facilities you are interested in are already reserved.
The Group Activities Permit (link below) is the completed form you will need to bring to the Board. You need to review the checklist (link below) and use it to fill out the Group Activities Permit to ensure that you are ready when you come to a Board meeting. If you are not ready, you will be required to return to a Board meeting at a later date. The Checklist will also show you if you need to fill out the Hold Harmless (link below). Be sure to bring a check(s) for use of the field house and/or the security deposit.
IMPORTANT: Use of outhouses: Septic tanks are used for the outhouses on the property. Trash (plastic bottles, bags, etc.) should never be disposed of in an outhouse for any reason. Trash clogs the septic tank and the Chapter has to pay to get it cleared. Groups may be charged these costs if the septic tank becomes clogged while they use the property.
All Scouting activities must first be approved by our Scout Coordinator, Tom Pike at Tom.Pike@arlingtonfairfax-iwla.org.
Note: All forms and Designated Director signatures MUST be completed before requesting approval at a Board of Directors (BOD) meeting.

The chapter owns 50+ acres in the Shenandoah Co. area that is used for hunting. Members can request a permit to hunt on this property. This was acquired in 1997 from the closure of the Annandale-Springfield Chapter, IWLA. Click here for additional information on how to obtain a permit from the chapter.
