Q:As a member, what is expected of me?


A.Everyone is expected to abide by posted/written rules and the  bylaws that are designed to create a safe environment. You are expected  to report any unsafe act or situation to any Board member ASAP. The Club also expects members to participate in Club work days when possible.


Q:I am not a member, can I attend a club event such as a shooting competition?


A.YES!  All sporting events are available to non-members at a higher  fee.  These can range from $5 to $20 additional to the member fee for  the event. During the warm months, the 5-Stand is open for clay shooting most Fridays starting at 4:00 p.m. Visitors are always welcome.

Q:Can I bring a guest?


A.Yes, we encourage you to show guests our facilities and encourage  them to apply for membership.  Please restrain to just a few short  visits.  Guest must remain with a member the entire time.


Q:When can I use the facilities?


A.After you are notified that your membership has been approved, you  may begin using the facilities immediately.  You will receive the gate code once your membership is approved. Due to several safety and  instructional issues on the use of the clay throwing machines new members are required to attend a new member orientation  before you use them. Ranges are generally open 9:00 a.m. to dusk with exception that we usually do not shoot before Noon on Sundays (unless there is a competition shoot where Sunday morning shooting is necessary). 


Q:When can I pay my dues?


A.You can sign on as a new member at any time.  Renewing your membership begins in August and continues thru March.

A.Dues are $175 per year for first year members and $125 per year for renewing members. Each member is expected to put in 8 hours of volunteer  work per year, or pay an additional $50.
