To use the facilities you need to be a member or their immediate family (member's spouse, dependents under 18 years of age, or grandchildren under 18 years of age). Membership includes use of the facilities for members of your household when accompanied by you.

Members have use of the range facilities during the daylight hours.   Members may bring two guests to the monthly guest shoot at the rifle/pistol range (usually the first Sunday of the month). Members may bring up to four guests to the weekly guest shoot at the shotgun range (Sundays). Shotgun range guest shoots have a guest fee, rifle/pistol range guest shoots do not.
