Prospective members will be advised by the Secretary which Sunday they can then attend to tionary period.
On your first visit one of our instructors will explain probationary membership to you. Initially £5.00 is payable to cover ammunition costs etc for the early training sessions. During the first three weeks you will be given tuition in the safe handling of weapons, range safety rules and range etiquette and the various shooting disciplines available at the club. After these visits you will be required to pay the Probationary Subscription. It is from this point that your three months Probationary period starts.
For obvious reasons we have to be very strict on safety. Until our instructors have signed you off as safe and competent your attendance will be restricted to Sundays, starting at 12:45. A probationer’s form will be started to record your attendance. Once this has been set up, you must ensure that it is signed and dated by your instructor on each visit.
After the probationary membership fee (see below) is paid the Secretary will write to the applicant’s referees. All members, probationary or full, pay a range fee each visit to cover heating, lighting and targets, currently £2.00.
When the three month probationary period recording a minimum of 6 attendances has been completed and our instructors have signed you off as safe and competent the Secretary will arrange for the probationer’s details to be added to the agenda for election at the next available committee meeting.
On election the Secretary will then write to the member, asking for their first subscription which will be proportionate to the full year’s subscription. Once the subscription is paid a full membership ID badge will be available for wearing at all times at the Club
