1. Complete an application and bring it to a club meeting. The interactive form (blue link above) can be filled out online then printed and signed. (Recommended) All the yes/no questions and the shooting sports choices are check boxes. Click on the boxes to select your choices.
Club meetings are held on the second Thursday evening of each month beginning at 7:00 pm at the clubhouse.
2. Applicants introduce themselves to the membership at the meeting they attend.

This can be done by presenting a current CCH permit, pistol purchase permit, or an individuals obtained background check. This need only be presented and will not be retained by the club. (Renewals see club business link)
