NOTICE TO MEMBERS RENEWING THEIR MEMBERSHIP FOR 2015

Pathfinder members who are renewing their membership for 2015 need to have their 2014 membership card with them when they come to the club to renew. This is the best way to verify your a member in good standing without having to check the computer data base. Your old card will be your temporary card until the new one comes in the mail.You will need your drivers license also to be put on the membership form.

Pathfinder is encouraging all renewing members to walk through the new safety course with the Range Safety Instructors to be up to date with all the safety rules at the club. These dates are posted on the website calendar.

Up coming changes that are being considered.

With the recent problems with members not seeing safety signs and not being educated on all the safety needed while shooting at the club, there may be a new range safety course offered for new members. It will be given on certain days of each month from Jan. to end of August. This course is hands on at each shooting range and should take around an hour to complete. After that you will receive a membership card with all privileges. Also an initiation fee of $20 on top of the membership fee that will be $40 starting Jan. 1st 2015. This covers the training cost for the officers doing the membership training. New membership application only available at the clubhouse. For renewing the safety course will be available as a written doc. that you will read and sign. Members need to know the rules on each range regardless of use and the fact that they are also liable for their actions along with their guest actions. A limit of two guest per member at one time is also being considered. These items will be discussed at the membership meetings.
