Safety Orientation Meetings

Only a limited number of Safety Orientation Meetings will be held throughout the year depending on demand and other factors.  Basically, you must sign-up on-line in order to attend a safety orientation meeting. On-line signup will only be available prior to a scheduled meeting being held, once a desired number of potential applicants has been reach, the on-line signup process will be closed until the next meeting is scheduled.

PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP  FOR A CLASS Once we have enough applicants for a class, then notification of a scheduled class including date and time will be sent (typically by email) for the next new member orientation meeting.

How It Works

When you attend a safety orientation meeting you will receive a book that includes all club safety rules and regulations. The membership committee will explain these rules to you and give you the opportunity to ask questions. These safety orientation meetings generally last about 90 minutes. Applications will be available at the clubhouse prior to the meetings. After the meeting Board of Directors will review and evaluate each application and then vote to either approve or deny membership to the club. Notification will be given by correspondence, normally within 10 business days. If approved, the applicant will be given information on how and when, membership dues can be paid. Upon paying dues, new applicants must show the following before dues can be accepted.

1.  A valid Driver’s License or a State Issued ID card.

2. A current and valid Concealed Handgun Permit or a Nebraska Firearm Purchase Certificate.

Membership Dues

A new member’s membership dues are prorated quarterly, which means that dues are reduced throughout the year depending on when membership dues are paid. Once accepted, applicants have one year in which to pay their dues. If not paid within this time period, the application becomes null and void and the applicant will have to go through the application process again.

Full dues for returning members come due March first of each year and is currently at seventy-five dollars. All new member dues are prorated quarterly so that all annual membership renewals occur at the same time.
