02 December 2020 Club News

We executed the base lease extension today and will be back in operation in January. We are requesting R214 for 2 weekends in January. We are currently working with range staff to verify range availability and final scheduling.

The process to add additional, necessary Ranges to the lease, while taking longer, are progressing and are very near completion. As I was told today, “We aim to be complete before the expiration of this most recent extension.”

We will be submitting an updated base access Roster on Dec 15, which will allow us all to renew our DBIDS pass on or after December 21.

We at SMGC appreciate your loyalty and the results of your faith are at hand.

2021 Membership Update

A SMGC Board of Directors meeting was held and the following change in Membership date will be implemented immediately. Going forward, all yearly memberships expire at the end of the calendar year. 

All multi-year memberships will expire on December 31 of the appropriate year.

This will make handling memberships, insurance and yearly base reporting requirements easier. Previously Harry Harrison has taken on all of the membership duties and it is a truly remarkable amount of work required.

For those individuals affected by this, an email is being sent to highlight the change and action needed. If your renewal check or funds are not received by December 15, 2020, you will be removed from the base access list and will not be added until funds are received.

For those of you who expired in the beginning of 2020 and are not part of the current membership roster, this is your opportunity to rejoin and get current.

Yearly membership in the club is not required to shoot with us, there is a daily membership option which allows us to comply with regulations and cover insurance requirements. Yearly membership is the only way that we can comply with base regulations and qualify you for a 1 year pass for base access. 

Without yearly membership you are added manually to the visitors list for a specific match with typically a 14 day duration.  This means multiple trips to the visitors center for you, and more work for the match directors to manually add you to the weekend list. So we encourage everyone interested to join the club, pay your fees and minimize hassle for everyone.
