Membership Procedures:

The following information lists the activities required to become a full member of the Lincoln Rifle Club.

Your probationary period begins when you apply for membership and pay your fees.  During your probationary period, you will be granted the privileges of membership which includes use of the Dillman Range without having to pay a range fee, the ability to participate in any activities reserved for Club Members, and discounted range fees for your spouse.  To be considered a full member of the club, you have 12 months to complete the following probationary requirements:

  1.        Shoot under the supervision of an RSO one time at the Dillman Range.  You may use the firearm of your choice.
  2.        Attend one session of the 1-hour LRC Firearms Safety Class generally held on the second Saturday of each month.

If you choose to join our club at the monthly Club Meeting (more info below), you are welcome to attend a short Range Rules Class given to familiarize new applicants with rules specific to the Dillman Range.  This class begins at 7 p.m. and lasts about 20 minutes.

 If for some reason you are unable to fulfill your probationary requirements within 12 months of joining, you must reapply.

 Club Meetings & Dillman Range Rules Safety Class

Club meetings are generally held the first Thursday of each month starting at 7:30 PM. Meetings are held at the Pavilion across the parking lot from the Indoor Range building located inside McBean Park in Lincoln, CA. This Dillman Range informal meeting with the Range Safety Officer is offered just prior to the Club’s monthly meeting at 7:00 p.m.

Membership Cycle and Renewal

Memberships are valid for twelve months from the time of joining. Membership renewals are based on when a member joined and dues were paid.  Renewals will be mailed out the month prior to expiration date.  Club membership will lapse if dues are not paid by the expiration date.

Work Assessment Credit

The LRC encourages all members to take part in making the club better. One way of doing this is to incent members with the yearly Work Assessment Credit. A member may minimize the cost of membership by providing service to the club. This service can take almost any form. Some members run events or matches, others assist them. Others take their life skills and assist at what they do best. No matter what talents you have, the LRC can put them to good use. A monthly range maintenance and work day takes on the 1st Saturday of the each month at the Dillman range.

All members are encouraged to attend the monthly meetings and participate in as many club activities as possible.

About 5 times a year members will receive a copy of the club newsletter, “Kinetic Energy”.
