THE PROCEDURE

ORIENTATION SESSIONS ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY

JANUARY & AUGUST
NONE
SEPTEMBER
4th Saturday - 14:00
ALL OTHER MONTHS
2nd Sunday - 10:00
TO JOIN CPF&G CLUB:
  1. Persuade a current Club member to sponsor you.

    (If you don't know any Club Members, you may want to check out some of our events that are open to the public. Come down and make some new friends. If you don't have whatever equipment is required to participate in an event, someone may actually offer to loan you some. It has happened - we're a friendly bunch.)

  2. Fill out a Membership Application.
  3. Make an appointment to attend a Club Orientation Session by contacting Samy Singh at membership@cpfgc.com or 860-834-1883. Your Club Sponsor must accompany you throughout the Orientation Session. These sessions are held regularly, as noted above, and availability is posted on the Coming Events page. (Sessions are by appointment only. )
  4. Before your Orientation session, read and familiarize yourself with the Club Bylaws, Standing Rules, and Range Rules. These can all be found HERE.

    (You will be tested on the Club Rules at the beginning of the Orientation Session. You must score 80% or higher in order to continue. Should you fail this test, you may make an appointment to attend a future Orientation Session. You will not be charged for the current one.)

  5. Bring your application to the scheduled Orientation Session at the Club, 82 Pond St, Newton, NH, along with a check for the appropriate amount.

    You must arrive on time, in order to allow time to process your paperwork before the Orientation session starts. Late arrivals will not be admitted. Prospective Members and Sponsors are requested to bring their own writing implements.

    Bring a handgun with you (if you have one). It must be unloaded and in a case before entering.

    (You will be coached on the safe handling of handguns and using your own would be more of an advantage for you than using a Club-supplied firearm, which may or may not share the same features.)

    DO NOT BRING ANY AMMUNITION TO THE ORIENTATION SESSION

  6. Successfully complete the Orientation session, which takes about two hours.
  7. Your Sponsor will initially be your primary contact with the Club. He or she is the only one who may nominate you for Club membership at a regular monthly meeting. This must be approved by a vote of the current Club Members present. Both you and your sponsor must be present at the meeting. These meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month.
  8. If you are voted into Membership, you will be assigned to an Authorized Club Range Officer. You will have to make an appointment with them to take your Range Safety Test. (See below)
TO BECOME A JUNIOR MEMBER:
  1. Persuade your parent, grandparent, or legal guardian to sponsor you.
  2. Along with your Sponsor, fill out our Junior Membership Application and have them submit it to the Membership Committee.
RANGE SAFETY TEST

All new Members of Country Pond Fish & Game Club, who wish to use any firearm on Club property, shall qualify by demonstrating their ability to safely handle a firearm and their knowledge of the Range Rules to an Authorized CPFGC Range Officer. This must be done prior to being allowed to use a firearm on any Club range. This procedure is designed to ensure that everyone who uses the Club's ranges does so in a safe manner.

The procedure may be found HERE.

Those who feel that they may not be able to pass this test should seek training thru their Sponsor.

This is a "pass/fail" event. Other than answering any questions prior to the test, no coaching will be provided. Successful completion of this process is required to receive a Club Range Access Card. Those failing this test may reschedule an appointment with the same Range Officer, but the test may not be repeated the same day.


MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS

ALL CLUB MEMBERSHIPS (except Life & Honorary Members)
EXPIRE ON 31 DECEMBER EACH YEAR.

Members are solely responsible for renewing their Membership. Renewal Forms are included in the Club Newsletter from October thru December, and are available on the Club website and at the Clubhouse during the same period.

Members may renew their Club Membership anytime between when the dues rates are set at the September monthly meeting and 31 December. Members are urged to renew early, so as to not overload the Membership Committee or the Post Office at Christmas time. If you do choose to renew at the last minute, there is no guarantee that your Range Access Card will be activated immediately.

Anyone who does not renew by 31 December forfeits their Club Membership.
(This does not apply to Active Duty Military members unable to renew due to deployment.
Those Members must renew within 30 days of their return.)

MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL FORM

The Club is now offering the option of Online Renewals.
A link and instructions can be found on the Members Only page.

RENEWAL FORMS MUST BE POSTMARKED NO LATER THAN 31 DECEMBER
NO EXCEPTIONS

While Honorary and Life Memberships renew automatically, those Members must still submit a renewal form annually, to ensure that the Club has up to date contact information.
