The new board members are currently working on updating the club's by-laws. Once completed, they will be available here on the website.
Some recent notable changes:
All members must be at least 21 years of age. Previously it was 18.
We no longer offer junior memberships.
Guests are now required to pay $1 per visit.
Any member who has not paid their annual dues by February 1st, will have their access to the club shut off. AND they will be assessed a $10 late charge.
The number of officer positions will change from 9 to 7. They will be as follows: President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Chief Range Officer, Range Officer, and Sargent at Arms.
All new members are required to attend at least 6 meetings per year.
Meetings will now be held 6 times a year (See the schedule below under Meetings).
We hold meetings throughout the year for members to learn what's happening with the club, updates on topics from the last meeting, and to bring up any new business or ideas to raise funds for the club.
Meets are held on the first Tuesday of every month, with an additional meeting in December for members to drop off their annual dues.

Club dues are $100 annually with a $65 initiation fee the first year. Payment should be received by January 1st of each year. You must be a current member of the NRA, or we can get you signed up for an additional $40 for the first year's membership. There is also $10 deposit for the key fob used for entry into the club. A $20 fee will be charged for a lost key fob. If dues are not paid by February 1st, your key fob will be inactivated and you will no longer have access to the club until your payment has been made. There is a $10 charge to reactivate a key fob once the past dues are paid.

Pistol Team Schedule
Come join the Hope Pistol Team. New shooters are always welcome.
Anyone interested in shooting for the pistol team can contact Bobby @ or 401-413-5786.
You can come down and see what it's like and try it out at a regular match. Matches start at 7:30 pm. You don't have to worry that "you're not good enough". The top 5 scores make the team so there is no pressure on you at all. Come to a home match and try it out. You might like it.
Need to contact us about something? Reach out, we’d be happy to hear from you.
