    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.

    As of 4/15/2017 all new members or renewing members must have a valid NRA membership through Sept 30th of the following year. This means in some cases that a 2yr NRA renewal may be required. This change reduces the amount of volunteer effort to process renewals. If your NRA membership is not valid until Sept 30th, 2018 you will not be able to renew until you membership is extended with the NRA. Notification will be sent to those members who are impacted.
