Membership

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

New member orientations are held monthly and give potential new members an opportunity to come in and learn about the club and what it offers. Orientations include an introduction to the club, tour of the facilities, and if you choose to become a member, a club level safety course.

FAQ

How long does orientation last?

Orientations take approximately 4-5 hours.

Can I just drop by and look around?

No, EESA has locked gates and isn’t a manned facility. You must either be with a member or be attending an orientation.

Can my spouse and children come to orientation?

Generally we would encourage the family attending orientation, under the current covid restrictions however we do have to ask that only the primary member attend. In the case of a dual membership being purchased we do require both parties to be in attendance.

What are your hours?

We do not operate under regular business hours. Our members may access the property anytime, shooting on outdoor ranges is permitted from sunup till sundown, indoor range and clubhouse are open 24/7 unless otherwise noted.

Can members bring guests?

Under normal circumstances members are permitted to bring 3 guests 3 times. Under the current covid restrictions however members are limited to bringing one guest to the outdoor ranges only, currently no guests are allowed in the indoor range. No guests may attend more than 3 times in a a year.

With Covid do I have to wear a mask?

While inside any building on EESA property it is mandatory that a mask is worn at all times. Those that have problems wearing a mask may wear a shield.

I just want to shoot. Do I have to be a member

Yes, East Elgin Sportsmen’s Association is a members only club. Unless you are attending as a guest you must be a member or be attending an event that is open to the public.

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.

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.

Membership is available in the following ways:

All orientations are cancelled due to the most recent lockdown in Ontario. We do not have any dates set yet for the future and will be unable to set dates until the lockdown has been lifted.

Please do not ask to be notified or put on a waiting list. We do not have the resources to maintain a waiting list so please be sure dates are available before submitting the registration form.

* 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.

Approved methods of payment are cash, cheque, debit, Mastercard or VISA on-site during orientation. New members must be present at the time of payment. Phone or mail in credit card numbers are not accepted.
