“I joined and paid my membership dues at my first shoot several weeks ago. Why haven’t I received my membership packet yet? Since I don’t have my membership number yet, can I participate in another shoot?”
When members join at a shoot, clubs turn in the registration and dues with their shoot report. Clubs have two weeks after a shoot is completed to submit the shoot and pay the fees and dues collected. After that, the new member registration is processed and the packet is sent out. So, it can take several weeks for you to receive it.
One thing you can do is check the Skeet Late Shoots and the Sporting Clays Late Shoots lists to see if the club is late reporting the shoot. But if you’re concerned about the delay, we’re glad to check on it for you. Just call us at 210-688-3371, ext. 962 (or extension 961 for sporting clays).
If you plan to shoot another registered event when you haven’t received your membership card yet, call us a day or two before the shoot. If the shoot has been reported and your membership is processed, we can tell you the number. Otherwise, on your next shoot registration, in the place of “Member Number,” you can note “applied for.”
