2024 Membership Renewals: We have set the JoinIt system to send out membership renewal notices at 30 days, 7 days, and 1 day from your expiration date.  So those who are set to expire on December 31, should have received a notice early in December. When you get a notice, please review your information to make sure your address and telephone are correct.

Membership fees are increasing this year, so a renewal will now be $150 for regular (18-64 years old and family), while seniors (65+) will now be $110.  New members are $175 for regular/family memberships and $135 for Seniors.  This was voted on a year ago and has been mentioned in several emails.

Also, with a new range cover and safety system, we will need to update our range rules and orientations.  We will keep you updated as we do that.  Meanwhile, clickhere to visit our membership page.
