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. A copy of Club rules will be provided upon membership acceptance.

Club meetings are held on the first Thursday of every month starting at 7:00 PM (except major holidays). After the meeting is called to order dinner will be served for those who wish to partake. After dinner, Club business and announcements take place.


For more information on what is required to become a member please refer to the 2024 New Member Application Form below. The application form can be downloaded and filled out in its entirety and mailed to the Club's post office box or brought to the Club office during regular business hours, which are the 1st Thursday of each month (meeting night), starting at 6:00 PM.

New members may join for 2024 any time after December 1st of 2023. We do not prorate dues, the cost is the same no matter when you join.

The expiration date for 2024 membership is February 28th of 2025. If you do not renew your membership within 12 months of the expiration date, you will have to submit a New Member application for approval, pay the $50 initiation fee  and complete the Safety Orientation over again.


For new members, upon receipt of your completed application and the correct dues amount, you will be presented for approval at our next regular Club meeting. You do not have to be present to be approved.
