Membership Sunday (the first Sunday of any month) Questions:

What time should I arrive? 

9AM is the suggested time, doors close at 9:30AM.  The orientation any payment process takes approximately 2 hours.  If you paid online you may be eligible for the express line, and thereby leave sooner. 

What should I bring with me? 

Bring your paid receipt from your online payment or a method of payment if you did not pay online.  That's all you need to bring with you!

What if all my family members cannot attend the orientation for my family membership? 

No problem.  They can attend at any membership Sunday but they will not be able to use the range until they attend the orientation. Reminder: Spouse, SO or minor children (ages 10-20) are eligible to be added to your Family Membership.

No. Family members must reside at the same address.
