Important Notice to Range Members... 
        Memberships have been standardised.  Effective November 1, 2012, all current memberships will be renewable at the below rates.  We have never raised member's dues  before but now find it a necessity.  Everything in this world costs more.  We have a limited number of slots for members and therefore a limited amount of income we can derive from membership dues.  On order to sustain the facility, pay the lease, lights, labor and liability insurance, we must charge more from each existing membership.  We regret any problems this may cause existing members who joined years ago and enjoyed membership rates dating from 1996.  In the future, we will make annual small increases in each member's dues that will keep up with the rate on inflation, 3% to 5%, to be able to keep this facility afloat.  This facility is not alone in raising rates for members; other local shooting clubs in the area have already done so.  None are accepting new members now.  Each member here gets a renewal notice during the month they are due to renew.  The renewal notice will advise the member of the renewal rate for his membership.

Membership:
        The F.O.P. Range Inc. is a sport shooting facility that is open to the public for a daily fee or through purchase of membership to be paid either monthly or annually.  

The requirements for range use or membership are:

        Your paid membership will allow you full use of everything we have to offer at the range.  Non-member's range use is restricted to the Public Range.  Members may use all the ranges on our facility including the Public Range.   We sell targets, ammunition, and other shooting and reloading supplies. Soft drinks, snacks, and a restroom are available, and we have emergency medical services minutes away.

        The range currently has over 600 members with weekend access.  When we hit 600 members, there will be no more memberships with weekend access sold.  An existing member will have to let his membership lapse to make room for another member.  Deposits for openings are accepted to get you on the waiting list.  This is the way it is at better ranges around the country.  We have a limited amount of room, 10 acres and 8 ranges, and often accomodate more than 100 shooters during a nice weekend.  We are at capacity.  We made room for 150 Limited Memberships with weekday only access.  There are still about 50 slots open for Limited Memberships.  Each month we free up about a dozen slots due to non-renewals.  We then go to the waiting list and call up those on the top of he list.  They have 10 days to respond and join or forfit their slot for the next guy on the list.  Now is the time to move.  Join now while you can.
