    • Thanks to the contribution of volunteers and your cooperation the first batch of renewals were processed on Sept 18 for 1,142 members (68%)
    • The next batch is scheduled for processing in early October, however:
      • 42 members (2.5%) are currently eligible to be processed
      • 411 need to renew
      • 145 need to extend their NRA membership through 9/30/2020

    We're volunteers. Help us help you. Renew early online. Keep NRA good through the coming membership year. The third and final batch will be processed after the end of the renewal period - i.e. early January 2020.

    Sept 2 - 08:30 - We have had multiple reports of problems with credit card payment.We are in the process of working with the membership system software vendor to get this issue resolved. Check back here for updates.

    Sept 2 - 08:35 - One member reported success after trying again.

    Sept 2 - 08:52 - Apparently the software vendor does not start work until 09:30. We'll work with them once they roll in. As reported above, someone did successfully renew after receiving the error, so perhaps try again but please, no more emails (at least this morning) reporting the issue. We're getting flooded. 

    Sept 2 - 13:04 - This issue with credit card payments has been resolved. Please continue to renew online.
    FYI, it appears that there was a "throttle" on the number of payments the system would permit. We hit that limit and for "security" reasons further transactions were blocked by the system. We understand the limit has been raised permanently. If you do experience any further problems email membership to let us know but do please check here first for new updates just in case loads of people have already reported it. Thanks to the I.T. Committee for their work resolving this issue.

    As our new member intake for this season winds down, the membership committee will be turning our attention to renewals. Please take this opportunity to ensure that your mailing address is current and that your NRA membership does not expire prior to the end of the coming membership year.

    The membership committee works with the NRA to verify our members NRA membership status. Any SCCS&FA member who does not have an NRA membership valid through 09/30/2019 will not be sent a renewal offer.

    We have observed significant delays within the NRA's process updating the membership expiration dates that they provide us, so act early to ensure a smooth and uneventful renewal process. 

    If just 20% of our 1,500 members require special treatment that means we have 300 exceptions to handle in our process. We simply do not have the volunteer resources to handle that. Your cooperation helps us help you.

    SCCSFA recently rolled out its new customer service system called HappyFox to better assist requests from member and prospective members. All voicemails and emails are now routed to a central system where volunteers can easily respond to requests.

    A range red danger flag system has been implemented on all ranges utilize a large red NRA flag. The flag should be lowered when prior to going down range. When the flag is "lowered", no one is permitted to handle firearms. All firearms should have open action with chamber flag inserted. When the flag is "raised" the firing line is active.

    In October 2017 Concrete pads were poured in all the range sheds to extend cover the entire enclosed space. Overall this will help make it much easier for members to pick up their brass (as is required) and gives the sheds a tidy appearance.

    In Early 2018 lighting and electrical outlets were also installed adding much needed electrical service and lighting to all of our  range sheds.

    The facilities committee hopes members enjoy this improvement. Feedback so far has been positive.
