If your spouse is interested in coming to the range without the primary member, they can identify this on the application and check the spouse badge box. They will be required to attend a range orientation and pay the $10.00 spouse badge fee.
Can I come to the range and shoot if I am not a member?
No. There are steps to joining PCGC. Anyone is welcome to join our range. We require every new member joining our range to complete Application and a range orientation conducted by our Range Training Officer or a Executive Board Member. This insures that the new member is familiar with the range rules and policies. As a member you are the Range Officer and you are responsible for the safety of your range, members and guests. If you are interested in joining the club and would like to schedule a visit, then visit "Contact US and drop us a line" and we will set up a time to show you the range.
Are matches held at PCGC open to the public?
YES. Club matches are open to the public, and will require a registration fee, and for non-members there is a non member fee. It is always best to reach out to the match director for specific information about prices, times and registration fees. Wavier forms are required to be filled out by everyone on club property (this includes spectators and participants).
I am a member, can I bring a guest?
YES. We welcome you to bring guests, but request that you encourage repeat guests to join. We also want you to limit the number of guest that you bring to only a few (a reasonable number that you can control and oversee). You are responsible for your guest actions, and your guest must stay with you at all times. Minors need to be within arms reach when shooting.
I WAS A MEMBER IN THE PAST, BUT LET MY MEMBERSHIP EXPIRE?
If its been two years or less, and we have a orientation on file, you may renew your membership without being charged the new member fee, and being required to take the range orientation. However, if it has been greater than two years since your last renewal, you will be required to pay the new member fee, and retake the range orientation.
