Twenty Six New Members 7/7/2022

Twenty six new members were voted into the club this evening. There was one new member without an email address and at least three bounces on the welcoming emails that were sent out. If you think you should have received the welcoming email and did not, please contact us at

The welcoming email was as follows. If you have been voted in as a member before this month and haven’t attended a new member orientation, you may attend this one.


We’d like to inform you that your application has been accepted into membership at Cherokee Rod and Gun Club.

To receive your gate card, you must attend one of the new member safety orientation meetings in its entirety.  They are currently being held the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month for December through March and monthly on the 2nd Sunday after that.

The next new member safety orientation is July 10th at 2pm.  Now that it’s past March, the next orientation won’t be until August 14th.  The gate will be opened at 1:30, closed back at 1:45 and the orientation will start at 2pm sharp in the main club house.  If you arrive before the gate is opened, please do not block it.  If you will be unable to attend this orientation, you can keep track of the next dates by going to the club’s calendar

At the orientation, you will receive a copy of the club’s green rule book.  A copy may also be download at any time from the club’s website from the information, safety, bylaws, rules page.

Expect to spend an hour to an hour and a half at the orientation.  Slightly more if there is a large group.  The orientation consists of watching the video found at , answering any questions the group may have, signing waivers and getting your gate cards.

Your membership is a family membership meaning your spouse, if you have one, and your children that still live at home or are in school and are not in the workforce may freely come to the range with the club member.  If your family members want to use the range without the club member present, then they must also attend a safety orientation before they do so.  Children under 18 years old but over 16 may use the range once their orientation is documented and the club has a copy of their completed “Approved Hunter Safety Course” certificate/card.  It is recommended that you bring your spouse and children (if they can sit quietly through a 20 minute video) so your entire family’s training and documentation can be done at one time – and marked on your card.

Your gate card can be picked up after the safety orientation.  It will take a few minutes to produce the cards once the orientation is completed.  You may shoot Sunday afternoon after the orientation – until 5pm at which time the range shuts down, no exceptions.  This will be emphasized during the orientation.

Email List

I will add your email addresses to the club’s MailChimp distribution list, you may unsubscribe from the list by using the link at the bottom when you receive your first email.  If you want the club’s emails to go to other addresses, please sign them up at .  We do not bombard you with emails, we only use it to make announces for important events like Lady’s Day registration being opened, online membership renewal is live, meeting cancellations due to weather or recently COVID19, gate lock being changed, etc. You were blind copied so as to not to share your address.  If you have any questions, you may reply to this email and the members of the membership committee – who are in the to field, reply to all – will get back with you.
