MESSAGE FROM THE MEMBERSHIP SECRETARY

 

Everyone has Signed a copy of the Range Rules and Attended a Safety Briefing but we have noted and had reported to us the following issues:

 1) Unless your guest at the Range is either your Spouse or a Dependant child less than 18 years old they MUST PAY A $10 Range Use FEE!! 

Failure to pay the guest fee will result in your being assessed those fees and/or your membership suspended.  You are financially responsible for your guests' use of the Range.

2) Have EACH guest fill out and Sign a Waiver. You MUST PUT YOUR NAME at the bottom as the sponsoring Member.

3) Sign in when you arrive in and when you leave please sign out.

4) NO Centerfire Rifles are to be used on the Pistol Range!!! Only Rim-fire.

5) MOST IMPORTANTLY  -  ALL rounds fired MUST BE AIMED SO AS TO DIRECTLY IMPACT THE BERM!!!!  

Skipped rounds off the ground can leave the Range resulting in Property Damage or Injuries with even loss of life.   Failure to follow this rule can result in you being forced to leave the Range for the day or the LOSS OF YOUR MEMBERSHIP. 

As a member you need to help others using the Range remember these and other important safety rules.....Re-enforce rules by kindly telling others when you see them violating the rule or making a mistake. It's everyone's Range so lets work together to keep it SAFE

 

 

When completing any forms for submission to the Membership Secretary, you must include with your application the following:

 

                              (a)  An initiation fee of $100 for New Members joining and those renewing members after a lapse of 2 years or more in active membership.

                              (b)  Membership Fee

                              (c)  Signed waiver; and

                              (d)  Signed Range Rules

                             

For the avoidance of doubt, members who have not renewed for two years or more will have to pay another initiation fee of $100 and will be treated as new members in the application process.  There will be no exceptions to this.

 

For new members applying in the period January 1st to July 31st in any year the membership fee for that calendar year will be $75 (plus the initiation fee of $100).  If an application is made between August 1st and December 31st, the membership fee will be $35 for that calendar year (plus the initiation fee of $100).
