After Successful Completion of the Probationary Period

Attend the Monthly Membership Meeting

Once you have completed the items above, you must attend the next monthly membership meeting to show proof of completion and get your regular membership card.   Few exceptions will be made for getting your regular membership card.

You will be issued a regular membership card with the gate combination on it, which is the same combination to the clubhouse where you can enter to get targets as part of your membership benefits.

The various ranges are open from sun-up to 10:00 pm 7 days a week, except for times when the ranges are being used for a calendared event. Always check the calendar before coming to the Club property to make sure there isn’t an event taking place, because you will have to wait until that event is over before you can use that range.

Become thoroughly familiar with the Range Safety Regulations, Policies and Procedures, and the Bylaws which can be found on this web site as PDF files that can be saved or printed.

When you join the Apple Valley Gun Club you are committing to take care of YOUR range.  The type of member we are trying to develop is one that is willing to help and give back.  As an all volunteer organization, nothing happens without YOUR help, opinions, care, concern, and leadership.  There’s more to membership than just shooting.  

See you on the Range!
