*****New Members*****

*To All New Members: At the September 2018 Club Meeting, the membership voted in favor of the Jamestown Rifle Club becomming a 100% NRA Club, effective 1/1/19. This requires that all new members who join after 1/1/19 MUST be either a current member in Good Standing with the National Rifle Association of America, OR must join NRA at the time of joining the Jamestown Rifle Club. NRA Membership forms are available at the time of joining and you can receive a discount on your Annual NRA dues by joining and maintaining your annual dues through the Jamestown Rifle Club. You must keep current on your NRA Membership to retain your Jamestown Rifle Club membership. If your NRA membership is revoked or not renewed annually, it will compromise your continued membership with the Jamestown Rifle Club.*

If you have any questions about this 100% NRA Club requirement, please contact us at jamestownrifleclub@yahoo.com. Please put "Membership" in the Subject line.

*New Members will be eligible to apply for a Club Key ("Fob") after 6 continuous months of membership, provided they have met the requirements of: 1)Their dues are current; 2)They must be paid members of the National Rifle Association (NRA); and 3)They have attended at least 2 club meetings and/or 2 work parties within that first 6 months of membership (The meeting in which the new member was sworn in DOES NOT count towards this requirement).* For more information about the Club Key Requirements, see the "Membership Renewals" section below.

*****Membership Renewals*****

*To All Renewing Members: Due to the decision to become a 100% NRA Club as of 1/1/19, all renewing members will be required to keep both their NRA and JRC dues current and in Good Standing in order to remain members of the JRC. The one exception to this is the NRA's Grandfather Clause, whichs allows that all current JRC members who are in Good Standing prior to 1/1/19, who are not already a member of the NRA will not be required to join the NRA as long as their dues are kept current and they remain in Good Standing each year with the Jamestown Rifle Club. However, the Grandfather Clause also states that if a renewing member of the JRC who was Grandfathered-In lapses on their JRC membership, upon re-joining the club they will no longer be covered by the Grandfather Clause, and will therefore be considered as a New Member, and as such will have to follow the New Member requirement to join and maintain a membership with the NRA in order to also be a member of the Jamestown Rifle Club.*
