Important Notice: The Acushnet Rifle & Pistol Club requires a sponsor for membership. The sponsor MUST be one of our current members who will vouche for the new applicant. If you do not know a current member but want to join the club you can come to a meeting or two and meet the members and a current member will likely sponsor you. Please read below to see what the sponsorship requirements are for new members.
Our club membership is for the calendar year for each year and not 1 year from the date of each member joining the club. We do not send out renewal reminders to the members and it is up to each member to send in their fees and documentation for NRA and GOAL. We DO NOT require a new application to be filled out at the time of renewal as these are ONLY for new members. If membership renewal is not completed before March 31st of each calendar year the keycard for the member will be turned off until the renewal is completed and the member will be required to pay the $50 initiation fee again as a new member would.
dues are $75 per year and are required to be paid no later than January
31st each year. Notice:
Club dues will be increased to $75 per year starting in January of
2014. Also please note that the 2016 year dues will need to be paid by
January 31st. We will no longer have a 3 month grace period after
this year and there will be a cap on membership and a waiting list for
new members once that cap is reached. Also we only take checks for payments for dues and no longer take cash. Please include your Goal and NRA
with your renewal fee. Please send to the following address below:
