APPLICATION: Douglas Ridge Rifle Club Membership Application

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Make sure you have the most current version of our application. Using an older version could result in delaying your membership application if dues, fees, and assessment amounts are not correct. The most current version will always be the one available on this website.

PAYMENT METHOD - Acceptable payment methods are cash, check, money order, or cashier's check. We are sorry but we cannot accept credit or debit cards. Do not send cash by mail. It is preferred that you send your application and payment by mail so that it arrives at least 5 business days prior to the scheduled orientation. This is so we can have your membership and access card ready for you. You may complete the application and make payment at the orientation but please arrive at least 30 minutes early and know this most likely will delay you receiving your membership and access cards by at least a week which will delay your having access to the club.

NEED HELP- If you need help calculating due and fees or have questions regarding the application process please send an email to the VP at webmaster@douglasridge.org.
