All new members are required to attend a club orientation class before they receive membership cards and the privilege to use the premises. The orientation class provides familiarization with the club rules and safety requirements particular to each range and an opportunity for any questions you may have to be answered. Please bring eye and ear protection to the orientation class as the ranges will most likely be in use. Membership cards and key cards will be distributed at the conclusion of this class.
Please note that annual memberships expire on the 31st of December each year. 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.
