Membership Requirements

PLEASE NOTE: We have changed our membership process. We are accepting applications and payments online instead of using printed forms.

  1. Apply Online. You can fill out the membership application here. Once you have paid for your membership you will be able to print out your temporary membership card. Please Note: You have three months from the first General Membership Meeting to complete the requirements for membership and attend a second General Membership Meeting.
  2. Find a Sponsor. All new members need to be sponsored by a current club member. If you’ve been to events at our club (Trap, IDPA, USPSA, CMP, etc) you’ve likely already met some of our members. You can also attend the monthly membership meeting and find a sponsor.
  3. Attend a General Membership Meeting. The General Membership Meetings are at 7:00 pm the first Tuesday of every month. New members should come to the meeting between 6:00 and 6:30 pm to have their photos taken for their membership card. We will sign your temporary membership card to confirm that you attended. You will need to bring government-issued photo ID (drivers license, passport, carry permit, etc) with you to the meeting.
  4. Attend an Orientation Meeting. Club Orientation is at 7 pm on the second Thursday of every month to explain the club rules and regulations. You may also opt to qualify for indoor range use following orientation.
  5. Attend a Club Work Party. Provisional members must complete 4 hours of work that benefits the club to attain full member status. Members must also complete an additional four hours of work each year, during years 2, 3 and 4 of their membership. Members may opt-out of the work parties in years 2, 3 and 4 by paying a $25 fee in each year that the work party requirement is not met. Provisional members may not opt-out of the first year’s service requirement.General Club Work Parties are usually the second Saturday of the month, from 8 am until noon. Archery Work Parties are the Saturday before the second Sunday, March through September. Special arrangements can be made for provisional members who cannot attend Saturday work parties (if, for example, the provisional member’s work schedule makes attending on Saturday impossible), but in no case will the service requirement be waived.Current members are encouraged to participate in club work parties.
  6. Attend a second General Membership Meeting. You will be issued your Member Key Card at the second meeting you attend. The General Membership Meetings are held at 7:00 pm the first Tuesday of every month.

Membership Fees for New Members

There is a one-time $150 initiation fee for all new members plus a one-time $10 deposit for the security access card. Dues for NEW members are $200 a year, November 1 through October 31. The dues for your first year are prorated quarterly at time of application:

November 1 – January 31

$200.00

February 1 – April 30

$150.00

May 1 – July 31

$100.00

August 1 – October 31

$50.00

All fees must be paid at time of application at the General Membership Meeting. No new memberships are accepted by mail. You must apply in person at the General Membership Meeting.

Membership Fees for Family and Guests

A member that wishes to bring family members to the club can purchase either a Spouse or Junior Membership for each individual. Effective as of April 2016, there are two rate structures for membership. The rate is determined by the date you joined the club. See the tables below for pricing information. Family members cannot access the club without the presence of the Full Member, nor can they vote in General Membership Meetings or in elections of club officers. Should a Spouse or Junior member choose to upgrade their membership at a later date, there is no initiation fee, but the other new member requirements must be completed.

A member can also purchase a guest stamp for $50/year. With a guest stamp, a member can bring up to 2 guests to the club. There is no limitation on the number of guest visits allowed, only on the number of guests at each visit. The member is responsible for ensuring guests follow all club rules and safety procedures. The guest pass may be purchased after being a member in good standing for 6 months.

Members who joined before April 2016 have the following rate structure:

Annual Dues $150
Senior Rate $37.50
Spouse $22.50
Enhanced Spouse $50
Junior $15
Guest Stamp $50

 

Members who join after April 2016 have the following rate structure:

Annual Dues $200
Senior Rate $50
Spouse $30
Enhanced Spouse $66
Junior $20
Guest Stamp $50
