Default New Members Tips

Getting into a club is incredible difficult in our region and spaces only come up every two years or so keep this in mind at all times.

Being a newbie at a shooting club is pretty daunting but here’s some tips for you.

1. Make sure you talk to as many members as possible, get their names and numbers, you’ll need these to get access to the club.

2. Never be late for meeting someone at the gate, get there early, remember the member you’ve asked is putting themselves out for you.

3. If you can’t make a meeting let the person you’ve arranged to meet know, see 1.

4. If someone else agrees to let you in, make sure the person you’ve agreed to meet knows you are in. If they end up sat at the gate while you're on the range they won’t be very happy with you. If you have no way to contact them, wait at the gate for them but again see 1.

5. If there’s work that needs doing at the club, show up and muck in.

6. Asking someone if they are “coming tomorrow” doesn’t qualify as arranging to meet someone, make it clear you want to meet and need to be let in.

7. Don’t turn up unannounced, see point 1.

8. Asking on the forum is also good but we don't look at it 24/7 and not everyone posts on it, did I mention seeing point 1?

9. We don’t bite, ask and be clear about it.
