The Abbotsford Fish and Game club is for members ONLY. By purchasing this membership you are granted access to the use of Ranges #2–5 and the Archery Range for the times specified on the calendar (these are subject to change from time to time so please ensure you check the calendar on the website prior to coming to the range). You also have the ability to bring up to a maximum of 3 guests per visit and are responsible for them during their visit. You will also receive liability coverage of up to $10,000,000 while in the act of shooting/hunting/fishing. By purchasing this membership you are agreeing that you have read, understood and will comply with the AFGC range rules. Failure to comply with the rules and safety requirements of the range will result in suspension and/or termination of your membership.
Membership Proximity Cards
The club uses a proximity card access control system. Your proximity card is your membership card and contains an embedded chip that allows access to ranges during open hours.
When you arrive at the range you will now be required to tap your membership card on the Door Access Reader to unlock the door and sign-in. All members must tap with their own cards, this includes family members who have been issued their own cards. When the light bar on the access reader turns green, you may enter the range. If the door will not open, try pulling on the door while tapping your card to release the latch. Once you have entered with your card, please ensure the door is closed behind you.
Members will be issued one card. If your card is lost or stolen, please report it immediately to the Membership Chair and you will be issued a new one at a cost of $10.
Work Bees typically happen once a month and members are strongly encouraged to attend and help out with the maintenance of the club and club grounds. To be informed when work bees occur please sign up for our weekly newsletter. If a work bee is done during the year, that charge is removed from the next invoice.
If you did not participate in a work bee last year you will be charged a $50 work bee fee. In order to have the work bee fee waived you must attend one work bee (approx. 4 hours) in the membership year.
Membership Delivery Policy
A person who renews their membership can do so via online payment or via cheque/cash payment mailed to the club PO Box or directly to a sub-club head (their renewal form and/or membership renewal invoice must accompany payment). If renewal is done online the member is to print a copy of their completed transaction and keep with them when attending the range until such time as they receive their colour/dated sticker in the mail (this may take up to 60 days) that is to be put on their membership card (this must be displayed as ALL times when on the ranges). If renewal is done with a sub-club head a new colour/dated sticker will be provided and placed on the membership card immediately.
A person who applies for a new membership will be required to make an appointment with the Membership group for a site orientation and to have their membership photo ID card printed complete with up to date sticker. New members are not permitted to utilize the range until this process has been completed and they have their card in hand.
Note that the total membership has been capped, so once we reach this number NEW applicants will have their name entered onto a waiting list. If a spot opens as a result of a current member who fails to renew their membership or has had their membership revoked as a result of disciplinary action the next person on the waiting list will be contacted by the Membership Chairman to confirm if they still wish to join.
You will be sent out an invoice by email only in April of each year unless you have specified that you wish to receive it by mail. If you have not received your invoice prior to April 30th please contact the membership chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Payments can be made electronically by following the link on the invoice to an online payment merchant where you can pay via Visa or Mastercard. You can also print off a copy of the invoice and issue a cheque payment which can either be given to one of the sub-club heads or mailed to the club. Once payment is received a new sticker will be issued which must be put on your membership card.
Currency Accepted: All funds will be processed in Canadian Dollars ($ CDN).
