HOW TO BECOME A BRC MEMBER
- You must be a member of the National Rifle Association – NO EXCEPTIONS. Membership in your State Association is suggested but not required.
- Get an application at the club or download one on line. Your application is due on December 31st of the year before the year you wish to join. Remember that we only take in members once a year, the second Wednesday of March.
- Get to know the club members so you can have two (2) of them act as sponsors on your application. Through these members get to know about the club and all it has to offer. One of the best times to get to know members is at a club meeting, which is the first Wednesday of each month from 6:30 to 8:00pm. Introduce yourself to the group to get the process started.
- Another benefit of going to the meetings is to see who is in charge of the various disciplines the club offers. See who participates in the shooting area that you are interested in. This is the fastest way for members to get to know you.
- DUES: The night that you become a member of the Beloit Rifle Club you will need to pay (“Current Rate”). During your first year of membership you will be required to volunteer 16 hours for the club. If you volunteer 16 hours, your dues will be reduced to (“Current Rate”). Any volunteer hours between “0” and “16” volunteer hours will reflect “dues” in the amount listed on a chart you will receive, as a new member.Dues during the second, and succeeding membership years, only 8 hours, to reduce your dues. If you choose not to volunteer, your dues will reflect the maximum yearly amount.
- I’m sure you have many questions. This is just an introductory statement to get you started along the road to membership. Ask those who are acting as your sponsors for the answers to your questions, if they don’t know ask at a meeting. Get a RULE BOOK from your sponsors and go over it with them. Part of your membership is the responsibility to know the rules the club functions under.
