Bylaw revisions have been ratified as of the February 2018 meeting, as soon as they are ready they will be published below. Dues increased $20 across the board, family upgrade stayed the same at $20 and Youth Membership is still only $7. As of January 1, 2018, Assoc Membership is $60, Assoc Family Membership is $80, Full Regular Membership is $100, Family full Regular Membership is $120, Youth <18 Membership is $7
All new or renewing members now have to submit payment with a completed application in order to make sure accounting is kept accurate. The $100 initiation fee for moving up to Full Regular Membership has been eliminated and there is now a $100 application fee for all new members coming in at Associate level. This is a 1 time fee. Work requirements are now applicable to all members at 12 hours for the year with 4 hours being eligible toward the Father's Day BBQ and associated prep days leading up to it. If required work hours are not met in the calendar year, membership status reverts back to 1st year Associate at a cost of $160. There will be organized work details, 3 grounds maintenance days and a host of other opportunities to complete the hours. If everybody lends a hand it will reduce the cost of hiring out to complete these tasks. If you have any questions or would like to attend or perform a work detail please contact a club officer.
We have done it again, gone and made a good thing better! New in 2017 is the addition of a Youth Membership Category. Due to public demand we have created a youth membership category for any one under 18 years old. This member with have all the rights and privileges of an associate member but must be accompanied by an adult, either parent, guardian or member while at a sponsored shooting activity.

General Meetings - 7pm, 2nd Thursday each month
The Monthly Regular Meetings of the New Milford Rifle and Pistol Club are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month and begin at 7pm. All meetings are held at the club house. These meetings are usually brief and give the members a chance to ask questions, express an opinion or get to know the club better. At this time we also handle the business of the organization as each member has a say in how the club functions. We entertain reports from various commitees such as Rifle, Pistol and Trap. At times there will be special reports from seasonal commitees such as By-Laws, Father's Day Chicken BBQ, Nominating and Trustees. There is also a full report from our Delegate to the Susquehanna County Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs where we discuss the activities of that organization and weigh in on issues that affect us as Hunters, Anglers and Trappers as well as various conservation concerns.
The New Milford Rifle and Pistol Club has a set membership application process All new members must join as an Associate Member. Associate Members have key/code access to the outside club grounds and ranges. After 1 year an Associate Member can petition for full membership. All regular members have key/code access to the facilities and ranges at all times. A member must maintain at least a yearly membership with the NRA and full understanding of the clubs by-laws is also required. We run several events during the year and ask full participation of our members. This is most important to the success not only of the event but of the club as a whole.
The membership application is a 2 month process. To become a member you have to attend one of our regular meetings and have with you a completed application (you can fill one out there), proof of NRA membership (you can join at that time for a discounted rate), completed PA Criminal History Background Check and your dues payment in full. This meeting will consist of a "meet and greet" style introduction. You must be sponsored by a current member in good standing and you may be interviewed by another member. At the next regular monthly meeting the application will be read again and voted on and you will be contacted with the results of that vote.
