New Members

Zia Rifle and Pistol Club will be opening up its membership for the 2019-2020 membership year in March/April. Those waitlist members from 2018 who did not receive the minimum 2 invitations will remain in the “First Received Selection” and will receive an invitation for the New Member Orientations that will begin in March/April. Those waitlist members who received 2 invitations will be able to reapply and rejoin the current 2019 waitlist. PLEASE NOTE: YOU WILL RECEIVE AN INVITATION FOR TWO ORIENTATIONS PRIOR TO BEING DROPPED FROM THE WAITLIST. IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO ATTEND AN ORIENTATION FOR EITHER OF THE ONES THAT YOU’RE INVITED TO, YOU MAY REJOIN THE WAITLIST.

Prospective members can continue to apply for consideration into the club and their applications will be noted and placed in the “first received selection” file for orientation classes beginning in the March-April 2019 time period. Procedures below will continue to be used for those applying.
