Elmira District Rod & Gun Club prides itself on being not just a shooting range, but a club for firearms and archery enthusiasts. We have some of the lowest club dues in all of southern Ontario while offering some of the best and most diverse facilities. In order to become a full member of the Elmira District Rod & Gun Club you will be required to complete our application process.

Application Process

If we are accepting new members you can click here to obtain the New Member Application Form. Fill it out and come to your first meeting. We meet the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 8pm out at the club. Please ensure you hand in your application BEFORE the meeting starts to the membership chair. At this time ask the membership chair for your volunteer/shooting events form to complete. During that meeting you will be asked to stand and introduce yourself to the membership. NOTE: you will need to have your PAL/POL present as you need the number from it. After you have been added to the meeting minutes you will now be required to complete your volunteer/shooting events. NOTE: you must complete this within a year of your application or you will be required to start the process from the beginning. Once you have completed your volunteer/shooting events you will be required to get a police check from your local police station (the standard one is sufficient), a nominal fee will be charged at your local station to receive your police check. At the next meeting hand in your police check and completed volunteer/shooting forms to the membership chair. During the meeting you will be voted on by the membership for your entry in the club as a probationary member. At the end of the meeting, see the membership chair to pay your dues.
