Membership

Thank you for your interest in EESA membership! Here’s what you need to know about becoming a member:

  • NOTICE TO MEMBERS:

    Renewals were due on December 31st 2019, memberships not paid up will be deactivated by January 31st.

  • As of January 1st 2020 recent changes to the guest policy at East Elgin will be implemented.  Members and their guests will now be required to make use of one shooting station only and have only one person at a time shooting.  This change is due to recent incidents involving unsupervised guests and is aimed at preventing the EESA from experiencing similar situations as two other clubs in Southern Ontario have.  Below is our entire Guest Policy with the changes.

    Guest Policy

    PLEASE NOTE: Members with guests are now required to make use of one shooting station only and only one person at a time shooting, this change is the result of recent incidents by unsupervised guests. This also assures shooting stations will be available for members.

    Each member is allowed to bring up to 3 guests up to 3 times per year.

    New members during their probationary period (90 days) are allowed to bring only 1 guest at a time.

    Guests MUST complete and place in the office mail slot a Guest / Visitor waiver located in the club house. All ranges also have waivers and mail boxes supplied to deposit forms. This form MUST be completed or the member is putting the club at risk. If the form is not completed the Guest / Visitor is NOT covered by our insurance and any incidents that may occur are the sole responsibility and liability of the member who brought the guest. Failure to complete the required form(s) will result in a 30 day suspension of guest privileges.

    Understand that members are 100% responsible for the actions of their guests at all times and must not be left unattended at any time. Members must ensure their guests do not have unsupervised access to any firearm unless that person is licensed for that type of firearm. Supervision of a shooter on the firing line is one on one.

  • Our next New Member Orientation Day is Saturday January 18th at 9:00 am.

* Membership fees are pro-rated.  As a new member, you only pay for the number of months remaining in the year.  Example: If your membership activates on June 1st, your member fees would be $170.92 ($293 / 12 *7).  Note that after your initial membership is activated, all memberships expire December 31st of the current year.  Your membership renewal for the following year will therefore be due December 31st.

** The Canadian Shooting Sports Association provides our members with insurance.  All members are required to have a current CSSA membership.  CSSA membership fees are also pro-rated.

*** Administration Fee is a one-time fee paid by all members of EESA when they became members. This is paid one time only when joining and is not applied to renewals.

****Indoor range access is an additional $30 (one time fee).  This will activate your member card for the indoor range.

Once you are a member, you may opt to reduce your yearly fees with volunteer hours!

Frequently asked questions:

  1. I just want to shoot. Do I have to be a member? – East Elgin Sportsmen’s Association is a members only club. We think that you will really enjoy meeting new friends and using our great facilities as a member. However, there are a few activities throughout the year that are open to non-members. Keep an eye on this website “Special Events ” page for a list of activities and dates.
  2. Why do I have to pay CSSA fees? – The Canadian Shooting Sports Association provides our members with insurance. All members are required to have a current CSSA membership.
  3. Why do I have to pay a “One Time New Membership Fee” of $150? – Your yearly membership fees help keep the club running. Your one-time administration fee helps pay for new expansions and the many ongoing expenses of operating a club the size of EESA.  All members paid this fee when they joined the club.
