Interested in becoming a member? Here's how to join:

Membership at Cascade Shooting Facilities is capped at 1,000 members. New members
are added in late summer/early fall when the membership levels drop below the cap.
Currently, the club is utilizing a waiting list for individuals who are interested in joining.
If you would like to be added to the waiting list, here are the steps you must follow:

Step 1: Open the New Member Application file located here CSF
Membership Application
. You will need Adobe Reader in order to open and
complete the application. If you do not have Adobe Reader, you can download a
free copy from Adobe's website. Please note there is a checkbox for "Free! McAfee Security Scan Plus" that you may want to unselect before proceeding to the download.

Step 2: Complete the New Member Application file. Please include your
preferred name, spouse's name (if applicable), email address, alternate email
address, phone number, mailing address, and NRA number. Please read the
citizenship statement as well as the release and indemnity agreement. No
signature is required at this time. You will be required to sign and date the
statement and agreement on the date of your orientation.

Step 3: Please save the file and then send as an attachment to the membership
chair at membership@cascadeshootingfacilities.org. All applications must be
emailed to the membership chair. Cascade Shooting Facilities will no longer
accept applications sent to the club's post office box.

Once your application is received, it will be processed and assigned a rank on
the waiting list. You will be notified by email when your application is processed.
Applications are normally processed within a few days of being received; however, they
can take longer in some cases. If you do not hear from the membership chair within two
weeks, feel free to send a follow up email to ensure that your application was received.

As mentioned above, new members are only added once a year in the late summer/
early fall. It is impossible to know how many new members will be added each year. The
number of new members added is determined based on the number of members who
either voluntarily resign or are dropped for failure to pay their annual dues on time.

New members are invited to join based on their waiting list rank. Applicants who
are invited to join will be sent an email invitation with details for the new member
orientation meeting. We will only hold two new member orientation sessions each year.
If you are unable to attend either session, you will have to wait until the following year
to join. In 2012, the new member orientation sessions were held in September and
October. Over 100 new members attended the orientations and joined the club.

After the new member orientations are completed, we will send out a waiting list status
update to all applicants who are still on the waiting list. Once the updates are sent, the
waiting list ranks will not change until after the new member orientation occurs the
following year.

Because all correspondence, including invitations to join, is sent via email, it is vital that
you maintain your email address with the membership chairman. Please note that we
have had reports that Comcast email accounts sometimes fail to receive emails sent
from the club. If you have a Comcast email account, we recommend adding an alternate
email address to your application.

If you have questions about the application process, please email the membership chair
at membership@cascadeshootingfacilities.org.

Renewal Information

The Cascade Shooting Facilities membership year ends on April 30th each year and
renewals begin every year in April. All members will receive a renewal invoice by U.S.
mail which includes their annual dues and any unsatisfied work assessment fees. Please
contact the membership chair right away at
membership@cascadeshootingfacilities.org
if your mailing address has changed.

Payment for membership renewals and/or work assessment fees is due every year on
May 1st. However, payments are not considered late until the beginning of the General
Membership Meeting on the first Monday in July. All payments received after the
beginning of the July General Membership Meeting are considered late and will not
be accepted. If your payment is late, you will be dropped from the club and it will be
necessary to reapply following the application process outlined above. Please make
plans to pay your membership fees early.

If you have questions about the renewal process, please email the membership chair at
membership@cascadeshootingfacilities.org.

Work Assessment Fees

NEW FOR 2013: All work hours must be completed by March 31 st in order to be
applied to the current year.
Work hours completed on April 1st or anytime thereafter
will be applied towards next year's renewal.

All members are required to provide 8 hours of service to the club each year. There are
more than enough opportunities to serve, but it is difficult if not impossible to provide
approved service opportunities for those who wait until the last minute to complete
their service hour requirements. Those who cannot perform manual labor should
contact the board as soon as possible for alternate service opportunities. Because there
is something that everyone can do to contribute to the club, work hour exemptions are
rarely granted and require written approval by the board.

If you have accumulated eight hours of service at the club, you will not be assessed
work fees. However, if you worked more than eight hours, the excess hours will not
roll over to the next year. In order to receive credit for hours worked, be sure to enter
your time in the log at the range house. Please write legibly and use the name on your
CSF membership badge. If you have guests or family members helping, their time may
also be entered and will count towards your eight hour service requirement. However,
their service hours must be entered under the primary member's name for proper
credit. If you would like to find out whether your work hours were properly credited,
please contact Steve Nelson at
public.use.director@cascadeshootingfacilities.org.

If you have questions about the work assessment fees, please email the membership
chair at membership@cascadeshootingfacilities.org.
