The Golden High Country Archers currently has a membership cap of 400. Residents of the city of Golden* and active military members are exempted from this cap. Anyone may join the club provided that the membership cap for the year has not been reached or if they are not subject to the cap. Simply fill out a membership application and send it to PO Box 16484 Golden, CO 80402.  The application must be received by the Membership Director, with full payment, in order to be considered.
Some Special Conditions
The labor of managing and maintaining the range is all done by volunteers.  As a result, each member is required to put in 4 hours of work at the range each year.  If this requirement is not met, a $75.00 fee will be added to their membership dues upon renewal.
About The Form
The membership application is a fill-in form.  You may fill it out in your browser or document viewer and print it, or fill it out by hand after printing.  There are two pages.  You must read the back page and sign it.  In the case of a family membership, a spouse (if there is one) must sign it as well.  Even if the spouse does not shoot, they must sign the liability waiver.  This allows the spouse to take children to the range to shoot.  The club issues membership cards for members, spouses of members, and children 16 years to 18 years of age.
