Membership at Cherokee is a family membership, which entitles the member's spouse and dependent children who are not in the work force to full use the Club's facilities under the rules & regulations set forth by the Board of Directors. For more information refer to the Club's By-Laws or the Basic Firearms & Range Safety for Members & Guests, elsewhere in this website. A copy of Club rules will be provided upon acceptance.
Club meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month starting at 7:00 PM (except major holidays, in which case the meeting will be held on the following Thursday). After the meeting is called to order dinner will be served for those who wish to partake. After dinner, Club business and announcement take place.
