Safe Handling and Membership
Once you have reviewed the FAQs from FAR and have references, let us know, and we will arrange for you to attend one of our training days to undergo Firearms Safe Handling training. You will need to pre-pay via credit card. We will not accept cash on the day, as we have had a few people drop out, or attend with a plan to pay at a later stage.
This will give you some practical experience handling firearms, and the Club will assess your fitness for membership, and collect fees.
Annual Fee $380
The Club annual fee covers SISC Range access on competition days, as well as NSWAPA membership.
Insurance is also covered as part of these fees.
Membership is for the financial year.
New members will be charged for the remainder of the current financial year, and may be charged into the next close to the end of the year (see below).
Joining Fees $285
