NEW 2019-WORKING AND NON-WORKING MEMBERSHIPS

This year SCWA will be implementing new membership options, a working and a non-working membership. Due to the fast pace of life everyone seems to be experiencing these days this leaves us with less time to dedicate to the activities we enjoy the most. This includes the SCWA board members and the small number of individuals that historically volunteer their time to keep the club up and running. In an effort to help elevate the amount of time that a relatively small number of members contribute to work outdoor shoots, indoor tournaments, facility maintenance, and youth league, the SCWA Board of Directors voted to develop a working membership, as many of the other area archery clubs are doing, to help engage more members in club activities. We can accomplish much more by having additional people contribute a small amount of time than we can with only small number of people dedicating their spare time. Therefore, we are asking members to volunteer only a minimum of 3 hours each year to help with club shoots, youth league and any other club activities as needed. The back of your membership card will have space to document the hours worked and will need to be confirmed by a board member. If you choose not to volunteer 3 or more hours, you can still join with a non-working membership. This will result in an annual fee increase of $25 for single membership and $15 for family membership (listed below). Gold membership fee will remain the same as last year because these members are typically the volunteers as well.

You can bring completed membership and waiver forms to league nights or you can see Justin Kranig at Monroe Sign Design, 1315 4th Ave W, Monroe, WI, from 7:30 – 5:00, Monday thru Friday to update your 2019 Membership.

You can also mail your completed membership, waiver forms and fees to the address on the form. Your new membership card, key and combination to the downstairs door will be mailed back to you as soon as possible.

SCWA has had a non-member shooting policy for many years but in the past few years that policy has been abused and has put our club at risk of liability with our insurance carrier. Club members are covered under our insurance policy, non-members are not, and in recent years there has been an increase in non-members using the facility. SCWA Board of Directors have adopted a members only policy for 2017. If any member know of a potential new member that would like to learn more about the club and see the facilities, a board member must be present. You can contact the board of directors at scwabod@gmail.com and a board member would be happy to assist.

YOUTH SPONSOR MEMBERSHIP INTENT:
The intent of the Sponsor membership is to attract young members whose parents or guardian does not desire to be members of the South Central Wisconsin Archers. These young members could be relation (i.e. niece or nephew), neighbors, co-workers, sons or daughters friend, etc. There is no financial membership fee.

PRACTICE:
Any current member (the sponsor) can provide and avenue for these young people to join the club by accepting the responsibility for their actions on the premises, as well as assuring they follow and abide to the club’s policies and regulations. Sponsors will not include the Youth Member as part of their membership. The Youth Member will have their own hours to perform at the club to keep their membership active. A Youth Sponsor Member does not have key privileges under the age of 16.

TERMS:
The Youth Member must pay for a regular membership when they reach the age of 18 or if 18 and still in high school then the regular membership would be needed the year after graduation from high school. If the Youth Member does not perform the required work hours during a calendar year, then they must pay for the regular membership to retain membership with the club. If the Youth Member does not abide by the club policies and regulations, they will not be permitted to remain in the club, but the removal of their membership does not impact the Sponsors membership.

We also have 4 rolling backstops for other yardages. Leagues have control of the range during set league times. If some of the lanes are not being used Open Shooting in those lanes can occur if it doesn’t interfere with League Shooting. Open shooting can occur at times when it does not interfere with leagues, tournaments, meetings and other club functions. A log book is keep at the indoor range just inside the door. Please sign in and out of the log book when entering or leaving the range as well as marking down reason there; for example meeting or open shooting or league. Open shooting will also use the log book to document fees paid. Shooting fees are listed next to the Log Book next to the entrance. Please pay shooting fees after you shoot. A member in good standing can use open shooting at any time it doesn’t interfere with club activities. Open Shooting Fees: Members: $2 for first hour, $1/hr additional Non-Members: $3 for the first hour, $2/hr additional hours. All club members that are eligible can have a key for the entrance on 10th Street as well as the combination for the door to enter the clubroom. The 4H uses the Indoor facility for their archery program this provides the club with some needed income during a time that the indoor range would see very little use by the club during April, May and June. This also promotes the sport of archery. The dates and times that the indoor range is scheduled for 4H archery will be posted in the indoor range during that time of year.
