Membership is open to anyone 18 years of age or older. Prospective Members must complete the Application for Membership, and by signing, agree to abide by the By-Laws and Rules and Regulations of the Club, and that violations of such may be grounds for dismissal, without remuneration. Currently there are no restrictions on new memberships, however a Prospective Member may be denied membership if a known history of dismissal from another sportsman’s club for significant conduct or safety concerns is expressed to the Voting Members at the monthly meeting where their application is considered. Prospective Members do not require sponsorship by a Current Member, but all new applications must be approved by the Voting Members at a monthly meeting.
2024 Annual Dues are $40.00. Current 2023 member renewals for 2024 membership must be received before December 31, 2023. No exceptions will be made for late renewals. If you submit a renewal after this date, you must re-submit a 2024 New Member application with the $50.00 New Member Fee, participate in an upcoming Work Party or pay the Work Party Waiver Fee. The New Member Orientation Program requirement will be waived if you have attended one in the previous year.
If you have any questions regarding your membership status contact Membership Chairmen Frank Zwiercan at 717-283-6556 or email@example.com.
New Member applications must include $50.00 which comprises the $40.00 Annual Dues along with a non-refundable Application Fee of $10.00. New Member applications will be submitted for approval by the membership at the next monthly meeting after receipt, where a Voting Quorum exists, and if approved you will receive your membership card after completing the New Member Orientation Program. If membership is denied you will receive a refund of the $40.00 Annual Dues paid less the $10.00 Application Fee.
Membership dues are not prorated. New membership applications received and approved beginning with the August 2023 monthly meeting and anytime up to and including the July 2024 monthly meeting will have membership good through December 31, 2024.
All newly approved Members must participate in (1) scheduled Work Party in their first year of membership or pay the Work Party Waiver Fee of $75.00. Failure to do so will result in denial of renewal of your membership for the following year. You must then wait (1) additional year to re-apply as a New Member. Work Party exemptions are available for active-duty military service and those with physical disabilities preventing manual labor. The 2024 Work Party dates are tentatively scheduled for March 23, May 4, June 8, August 10, September 7, and October 5. Please check the website for final dates. Work parties run from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm. No reservations are needed; simply show up prepared for outdoor work. All members are welcome to participate, and all help is appreciated.
In addition to the Work Parties, all new members are required to complete our Orientation Program prior to receiving their membership card. This program is designed to introduce new members to all aspects of the club and will consist of a tour of the grounds along with an explanation of the activities available. It will also cover all range rules and regulations, the hours of operation and, most importantly, the expectations for using them in a safe and responsible manner. Additionally, upcoming club functions, the Membership Manual, club committees, the Guest Pass program and New Member responsibilities will be reviewed. Orientations will be offered the second Sunday of every month at 10:00am, and at Noon of every scheduled work party. Reservations are not needed, just show up at the designated time.
