Junior: any person within age 14-18yrs

Membership fees: we do not publish membership fees, these will be advised to the individual by club officials on application.

We do not operate a waiting list. Anyone interested in joining will be accepted as a probationary member (only if we are able to open membership). We need to get to know you & find out a bit about you, first.

We need you to be proposed by a full club member. If you know such as person already, there is no problem. If you do not know a full member then a committee member will propose you once we are satisfied about you.

You will be required to sign a declaration stating you are not prohibited from being in possession of firearms or ammunition.

We require you to provide 2 x passport quality photographs as a prospective member.

You will normally be a probationary member for at least 6 months. We are required to make an assessment about your level of commitment & general character during this period & to base the decision about full membership on the outcome of this. 

Once you are a full member you are able to apply for your Firearms Certificate if you wish.
