    So, what's up with the memberships? Full and Associate?

    Second year of mostly closed ...

    Prolonged?
    Expiring as BAU?
    Ways to renew?


    The earlier response appreciated.
    If a politicianís life is worth armed guards, why aren't our children's lives worth the ability for us to give them the same level of protection?

    Dear Sir,

    I am not sure what you are asking.

    Yes, we have been closed a lot of 2021: Jan 1st to 22 Feb and again April 02 until (who know when).

    Fortunately our retail has not closed.

    To compensate full members for the closures in 2020 and so far into 2021 we have been offering a tiered discounted renewal rate and will continue to do so. Given we do not know when this lockdown will be lifted, exact end dates for this program is not known. But we believe we are being very fair in looking after our membership.

    In regards to associate memberships; we have no plans at this time to do anything special. The renewal rate is already only $85 for the year.

    We are also being very reasonable in assessing renewal dates to acknowledge some people's hesitancy to come in at this time: Keeping in mind we were only closed for less than 4 months in 2020.

    Please also keep in mind that we cannot drop the prices too long or for too long as we have had almost no drop in the actual costs to keep the ranges operating.

    Feel free to reach out to myself or Julie the GM if you would like more information.

    Regards,

    JR,
    you have answered in regard of the approach and the policy, thanks :-)

    Now, what's the current actual procedure to renew now when physical visits are prohibited:
    1. A renewal form to be downloaded? Sorry, didn't find one.
    2. Scanned and e-mailed / faxed?
    3. Payment over the phone (AFAIK, there's no online option)?
    4. New actual membership card? Actual visit to the range required? Can the previous photo be reused?
    5. What's the grace period (deadline) to renew in current "stay home" order situation - memberships expiring, e.g. April and May 2021?


    Thanks!
    PS. Asking in the open forum as I am sure there are more people would like to get clarifications than just me.
    Also, didn't get any email notifications re membership this year.
