    I went to the club for new member orientation. The rub is that I need a current member to sponsor me; I don't really know anyone there, as I have just recently returned to shooting sports after a long hiatus. I am sure I would make a lot of acquaintances there once I am a member, as I love to talk about/learn about guns. However I need that first member to help out a newbie.
    Any takers? Lunch on me BTW--my office is in the Kenwood area.
    Incidentally I plan on being at the GSSF Target world shoot this coming Saturday, maybe that might be a place to meet. Thanks.

    I don't know a lot about that club. I do know that you don't have to be a member to shoot the USPSA (IPSC) matches.

    Heck, you could just go watch and learn.

    There you will meet other members.

    What if you don't shoot matches, are you SOL?

    I can't go and mingle, I work about 50-60 hours a week. Guess I can't join. :sad:

    A nice gentleman from the forum here offered to help me out--thanks Jim.
    Cincybrad--I will "pay forward" and do the same for you once I am in. Why don't you send me a PM in a couple of weeks--hopefully my process will be through by then.

    I have been a member for about two years and can tell you that it is a great club. They do everything right(IMHO)!

    If you anyone goes to work a match or work day and needs a member to sign, let me know and I will help out. I am there at least on day most weekends.

    Well, my application fell through. I thought I had provided every bit of info required, but I was missing the signature of the membership director. (Now, mind you, I spent 2 1/2 hours with the membership director when I was there for the new member orientation.)
    Anyway, the idea of repeating that ordeal, which only occurs on one sunday per month, which was suggested as what I would need to do, is not all that appealing. Not enough free Sundays.
    I guess someone is trying to tell me something.

    JoeDoc, don't give up. I am a member at MR&P and I will sponsor you. Shoot me a PM if you are interested. I am in Deer Park and can be in Kenwood in 5 mins or less. :thumbsup:

    Ya, don't give up. Go back and talk to the person that was in charge the day you worked or just plead your case to the membership director. It's might be a little bit of a hassle right now but worth it in the long run.

    Thanks gentlemen--I will try as you suggest. I do already have a sponsor, but thanks for the offer. What I am lacking is HBs signature---somehow I spent all that time with him but failed to get that.
