Membership at Watervliet Fish & Game Protective Association has been, by vote, limited to twelve hundred. Watervliet Fish and Game Protective Association, Inc. membership, when openings are available, is open to all persons of good character who enjoy the shooting sports and support the goals and objectives of the organization as outlined in our By-Laws. If membership openings should become available they will be posted on this website near the end of the first quarter of the calendar year. Directions and conditions will be listed at that time. No waiting lists will be kept and unless openings exist, no applications will be accepted.

Once the Board of Directors has reviewed the applications we will invite you by mail to attend one of two General Membership meetings. These mandatory meetings will be held at 7:00PM on Thursday, May 9th & Thursday, June 13th respectively. WFGPA’s members will vote on new members at those meetings. A lottery will be held if the number of applications exceeds the available openings.

Very Important to note that there will be only two available orientations offered, which will be 10:00AM on Saturday, May 11th & Saturday, June 15th respectively. Attendance is mandatory for one of these orientations. If you’re aware of a conflict with these dates that can’t be resolved we advise you to postpone your application until next year.

Thank you and we look forward to receiving your applications.

Your renewal is due prior to that date to maintain an active status.  After that date you will, without exception, be dropped from the membership roll, lose any seniority for continuous membership and be required to re-apply as a new member.  Key cards will be deactivated as well.
