Please complete the application located on the website and pay the $200 initiation fee deposit and the first year membership refundable deposit online with a credit card. Please select the correct month you are applying in as memberships are prorated based upon quarter applied in. Follow the directions on the application for submitting it by email. You must be sponsored into the club by a current member. If you do not know anyone currently in the club, ask Steve Eidson for some ideas on how to find a sponsor. Once your application is received, it will be voted on at the next, regularly scheduled SBRC Board of Directors’ meeting. If tentatively approved by the SBRC board of directors, the next step is to complete the SBRC range orientation. This is important. It takes about 45 minutes. Arrangements will be made to meet with the prospective member at the range. SBRC by-laws, range rules, emergency procedures, where neighbor’s homes are in the area, what you should bring to the range with you, what can not be shot at the range, expectations and SBRC history and tradition will be covered. Once the prospective member completes SBRC orientation, and pays his/ or her initiation fees and dues, the applicant will receive a range gate combination, a SBRC membership card and be made an official, active member of the Springfield Benchrest Rifle Club.
