Introductory Tour

If you are interested in joining our chapter, we ask that you attend a new member tour first.  You'll get a complete tour of our grounds, can have your questions answered, and if you decide to join, we can process your membership at the same time.

Tours of our facilities for prospective members are held on the First and Third Saturday of each month, beginning at 11:00 AM, in the Chapter House.  If the Saturday schedule doesn't fit your schedule, send an email to and we'll work to schedule a day and time that meets your needs.

Safety Briefings are held following each tour, beginning at Noon.  If you need to attend a safety briefing for the current year, you can do that too, on tour days at noon.  Hope to see you there.

Attending a Range Tour is Required Prior to Becoming a Member

Email to let us know you're interested in the tour of our facilities and ranges.

We're flexible and should be able to meet you at a time and date that works for you, if the usual Saturday dates don't meet your schedule.
