Reminder RE: Range Sign in Process for Genesee

Please ensure that you are familiar with the sign-in process for the Genesee Range and note that all members and guests, whether shooting or not, MUST be signed in at all times.  

     Step 1 - use your swipe card at the main reader in front of the gate.  Then use your swipe card at each range. (This is to monitor range usage to properly allocate monies to the more used ranges)

     Step 2 - sign your guest(s) in as YOUR guest(s), including the date, their name & your membership number as their host*

     Step 3 - print your guest's name, your name, your membership number and date on one of the available envelopes** and enclose $20 which includes the NFA Liability Insurance Fee***

     Step 4 - place the completed, sealed envelope (along with the enclosed, FULL amount of $20 in REAL Canadian money - NOT Canadian Tire money, Monopoly money, or what ever loose change you happen to have on you at the time!) in the provided lock box

    Step 5 - proceed to the shooting station of your choice and enjoy a safe, responsible and pleasant day in cordial company


     - Any guest who is under 18 years of age AND is accompanied by an NFA Liability Insured parent or a legal guardian does not require separate liability insurance coverage. As minors, they are covered by the NFA Liability Insurance of their Parent or Legal Guardian. (If in doubt about liability insurance coverage, just pay the $20. Lunch at a fast food restaurant will cost more and it's a small price for peace of mind.)

     *Remember that, although you can take as many guests as you want per range visit, ONLY THREE (3) of your guests may shoot at any one time. While ANY of your guests are shooting, YOU are DIRECTLY and ATTENTIVELY SUPERVISING them and therefore CANNOT be shooting while they are doing so.

     ** You must use a separate envelope for each of your guests. Each must have the guest's name, your name and your membership number printed on it & each must contain the required $20 fee.

     ***If you don't pay this fee or fill in the envelope properly, NEITHER YOUR GUEST NOR YOU ARE COVERED should your guest harm themselves, you, someone else, or cause damage to any property in any way. They and you are not covered by NFA Liability Insurance and YOU as the host member will bear full financial liability.
