CLUB / RANGE ACCESS

The membership period is from January 1 through December 31 each year.  Membership allows 24/7 indoor and outdoor range privileges, but does not include any fees for leagues.  League fees are $5.00 for members per league night and $8.00 per visitor.  Our leagues are open to the public so you can bring a friend who may not be a member to shoot with you!

Please close the gate and twirl the lock combination when entering or exiting the building and parking area at Flint Bowmen if you are the last person to leave the grounds.

Guests may shoot on club ranges while accompanied by a current member, pay the requisite guest fee, and have a current waiver on file.  Guest fees are $5.00 for adults, $2.00 for children.  When shooting a league, a separate guest fee is not necessary for the league nights.

NO BROADHEADS are allowed on Target or Field ranges.  BROADHEADS are only allowed on the outdoor range specifically for that purpose.
