General and Board Meetings
Our combined General and Board Meetings are held the second Thursday of each month starting at 7:00 pm at the Preston Community Center. The General Meeting runs from 7:00 pm to 7:30 pm. 

During the General Meeting, applications are received from prospective members. You need to attend the meeting to submit your application and make payment. Please see instructions below. 

The Meeting is a great opportunity to meet other club members, make announcements, and learn about events at SVRC. Club officers make their reports, new members enroll and make appointments for range orientation, and we occasionally have a presentation by one or more club members on topics of interest relative to guns and shooting.

The Board Meeting runs from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm. During the Board Meeting SVRC members are welcome to listen and to participate at the will of the President. General members do not vote on Board initiatives.  

New members
Go to "Membership Application" on this website for a link to the current new member application.  Please do not use an application that is dated older than November 17, 2012. We are taking in a significant number of new members each month.  A couple of suggestions:  You can show up before 7pm by 10 minutes or so, and there will usually be someone taking applications.  Please make every effort to bring in  your application on Thursday evenings rather than coming to the range on Saturday mornings when range safety orientation is held.  If you have to work on Thursday evenings, that is one thing.  But if you just think it is more convenient to come to range safety orientation with your applicaiton, bear in mind that the person who processes your application may have other things to do on Saturday.  All of us are volunteers.

Instructions for Initial Membership Application
Bring the completed but not signed application to a General and Board Meeting. You will sign your application in front of a club officer. Have your driver's license or other valid picture ID and proof of NRA membership (card or current address label from American Rifleman works.) out and ready to show the board member who takes your application.   The attending officer will review your application, take your check, and explain the next steps. We do not yet accept credit cards. Please arrive by 7 pm in order for all to complete the process before the Board meeting begins promptly at 7:30. The January board meeting is especially busy. 

We are pleased to announce that SVRC membership now accepts legal residents of the US who are not US Citizens (e.g. - holding a green card or work visa) and who have a permit to own a firearm. Please bring this additional paperwork as you submit your application. 

Spouses are welcome as members, too. They also need to show the same information as above when applying. NRA offers discounted spouse membership. 

Safety Orientation
All new and renewing members participate in safety orientation. New members are not yet members until this has been accomplished.

Group Safety Orientation usually takes place at the range at 8am on the Saturday morning immediately following a General and Board Meeting. Check the calendar for dates and times. While we would love to be able to offer individual orientations to fit each person's busy schedule, as a volunteer organization, we do not offer this opportunity at this time. Please connect with the XO if you have a truly unusual situation.   

As we have no on-duty Rangemaster, every member is responsible for the safety of everyone on the range. Rules are posted and must be followed. It is each member's duty to hold All accountable for adherence to range and safety rules. Be respectful to other members, but do call it out when you see unsafe or non-compliance with range rules.   

From the SVRC Vice President:
The SVRC Board is crucially concerned about both safety errors and willful safety violations. They don't necessarily happen frequently, but they do happen. Even long-time members have been spotted making mistakes. We just can't allow someone to get hurt out of neglect, carelessness or ignorance of the rules. The Board has voted to require periodic refresher safety orientation for all members. How often? We don't know yet. Our  Executive Officer will be asked to make a proposal to the board as to how often, and what the content will be. I encourage any member who has ideas on this to drop me a note or send an email to info@svrifle.org

 Membership Renewal
SVRC Membership may be renewed at the General and Board Meeting by completing the membership renewal form sent to each current member by mail. Please read and follow the instructions to ensure timely and accurate processing of your renewal paperwork. Questions about membership should be directed to info@svrifle.org.

Summer Membership BBQ
Each summer we gather at the range for a day of fun and games, food and friends. The date for the 2013 Summer BBQ has not yet been announced. Watch the August calendar for the date and time. Invite your shooting friends and family members. There is no additional fee for this event. Hamburgers, hot dogs, salad, pop and prizes! The Public is invited - starting 11 am, or earlier if you want to help set up, and please do!
