MVSA’s membership renewal for 2019 is upon us! Beginning November 1 and continuing through December 31, annual memberships can be renewed online at the Membership section of this website.
Renewal membership dues for 2019 remain at $120.00, and are subject to 8% sales tax, for a total of $129.60. You may renew online using a credit or debit card via our secure payment system.
New for 2019: $25 Late Fee: All members are urged to renew their memberships prior to January 1, 2019. Per MVSA’s Bylaws (Article VII – Dues, Section 1): “The annual dues shall be payable no later than January first each year, and shall be considered in arrears the following March first, resulting in the cancellation of that membership.” All memberships renewed after the due date of December 31, 2018 will be assessed a $25 late fee, as approved by your Board of Directors. Late renewals will be $120.00 (dues) + $25.00 (late fee) + $11.60 (8% sales tax) = $156.60.
Memberships cannot be renewed after February 28, as dues “in arrears” result in cancellation of the membership, no exceptions.
The fastest, easiest, and most secure way to renew your membership is by clicking this link (Membership Renewals) and completing the online Renewal Application.
If for some reason you are unable to renew online, contact membership chairman Jim Patton, firstname.lastname@example.org, or club secretary Randy Hitchcock, email@example.com, for a copy of the Renewal Application, which will be emailed to you for download. You can then print the application and mail it with your check or money order.
Per MVSA Members’ Manual (Page 3):
“MVSA Range hours are daylight hours only. No night shooting is allowed unless part of an organized match or otherwise approved by the Board of Directors. Night is defined by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission as the time period 30 minutes after sunset and 30 minutes before sunrise.”
Addendum to Policy:
MVSA members, guests or visitors may not enter MVSA property after the official Range Hours as defined in the Members’ Manual, page 3, “Overall Policy on Range Use.”
If a guest or visitor needs to gain entry after the policy hours, they must seek the Venue Chairman’s or a Board Member’s permission and must have one of these individuals or their designee accompany the individual onto MVSA Property outside the MVSA Range Hours policy. MVSA members in good standing, and the MVSA caretaker, must seek permission from the Venue Chairman or a Board Member to enter after hours.
All other persons entering MVSA property will be considered trespassing, and will be prosecuted as per the amendments of MVSA Bylaws and Policies.
MVSA Action Shooting Range
Because MVSA is a not-for-profit, member-owned and member-run facility, we need ALL members to help maintain this premier shooting club: Please take pride in MVSA and Get Involved. All maintenance is done by member volunteers like you!
· Be SAFE! Keep actions open and unloaded, muzzles downrange, fingers off the triggers until sights are on the target, and stay aware of other people and property anywhere on the range.
· GUESTS: Please remember to have new guests sign a waiver before using club facilities.
· Wear proper EYE and HEARING protection.
· LEAVE IT BETTER THAN WHEN YOU ARRIVED!
Pick up and deposit trash, bottles, old targets, and spent shotgun hulls in the waste receptacles at each venue.
Cardboard should be placed in a designated Burn Bin or receptacle (not the trash containers).
Help keep our range clean. If you bring it out (paper/cardboard targets, ammo boxes, bottles or cartons) take it home. Do not leave materials at the range. Replace equipment (target stands, sticks, etc.), remove used targets, pick up any trash, and generally leave the range even better than when you arrived.
· Don’t shoot at railroad ties (or anything else!) on the ground!
Ricochets happen and are extremely dangerous, and destruction of range facilities is punishable by loss of membership and financial restitution. All your shots downrange should impact a dirt berm.
· Steel Targets at the Cowboy Town, Rifle Range, Action Range, Pistol Range, and Woods are EXPENSIVE!! Never use steel-core or “penetrating” rounds on such targets. (Remember: Shooting at the Cowboy Town requires prior certification and approval).
Don’t shoot rifles at the close-range target steel intended for pistol or rimfire rounds. (Specific requirements and certifications are necessary before shooting at Cowboy Town). Damaging these targets is cause for termination of your membership privileges.
At the Pistol Range Use only 22 rimfire rifles, and straight walled caliber handguns, no shotguns, no 223 or larger pistols or rifles, and, no full auto allowed.
At the Rifle Range use only rifles, long range hunting handguns including 223 cal pistols or shotguns with slugs, no full auto or simulated full auto, 50 BMG, steel core or tracer ammo allowed.
Violation of these rules can cost you your membership.
