General Information

General Members have available for use four of the shooting pads at TMSA. They are:

  • Public Range #1,
  • Range #2,
  • Range #3,
  • Rifle Range #11.

A General Member may take 1 Day Card User with them on Ranges #2, #3 and Rifle Range #11 only with Range Warden’s approval.

If you meet qualification criteria, you may also join one of our additional user groups, CMPS (Coast Mountain Practical Shooters) or TMAR (Thompson Mountain Action Rifle). Proof of Membership, IPSC # and/or Case # will be required.

Membership has its privileges and rewards, but also has its responsibilities. TMSA members are expected to attend one or more work parties per year. TMSA is a volunteer organization, and without volunteers to help with the general maintenance of the club facilities, the costs for membership will have to increase.

Members must have their current membership card displayed at all times while on the range property. Failure to produce a valid Picture ID Membership Card will require a non-refundable day card.

REMINDER: If you attend the range without your Member Picture ID Card, You will be charged a full day card fee, non-refundable.

Work parties are a great way to get involved in the community, meet your fellow club members, and support your club. Even if you are not required as a Charter Member, Key Access Member, or Match Participant you should still come out and get involved!

If a Club Member wishes to volunteer as a Weekend Range Officer, credits will be given in place of work party credits. This work will be to assist the on duty RO in overseeing the members and learning the safety aspects of the range and its operations. Credits only apply for Charter and Key Access Members, but any member can get involved and their support will be appreciated. One credit will be issued for 2 half days of RO duties. See the Range Warden on duty at the range for more details.
