Interested in becoming a member?
Membership at Cascade Shooting Facilities (CSF) is capped at 1,250 members. Currently, the club is at that cap and is utilizing a waiting list for individuals who are interested in joining. When there are openings, individuals will be invited in the order they joined the waitlist. Openings usually happen sometime in late summer/early fall when the membership levels drop if people do not renew their membership.
Members are required to pay an annual membership fee (excluding CSF life members) and volunteer at least eight (8) hours for the club. In lieu of volunteering, you may pay a Work Assessment Fee. There are plenty of opportunities to volunteer for your club to help out regardless of your physical capabilities. If you need more information go to Volunteer Work and Work Assessment Fees.
Members are required to have and maintain an NRA membership.
How to Get on the Waitlist
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 will be invited to join the club 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. The club holds new member orientation sessions on an as-needed basis. If you are unable to attend either session, you will have to wait until the following year to join. At the orientation, you are required to pay your dues in full (currently $130 per year).
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, are 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 using the Contact Us form.
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 using the Contact Us form 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.
