Northern Colorado Rod & Gun Club (NCRGC)

2022 Spouse Badge Application


Instructions:

  1. Please read all the instructions before completing this application. Most questions and mistakes are because members fail to read the instructions. If after reading the instructions you still have a question, please email the Member Services Coordinator (MSC) at membership@ncrgc.org and allow 1-2 business days for a response. Business days do not included weekends and holidays.
  2. The Board of Directors encourages Spouses of Regular Members to apply for their own badge. Doing so will allow the Spouse to go to the range without the Regular Member, bring dependents that are part of the household membership, bring up to 2 guests per visit, etc. A Spouse is considered the Associate Member and is entitled to all rights, privileges, and responsibilities of the Regular Member with exception of the right to vote on matters concerning the club or to hold an elected office.
  3. To be eligible for a Spouse Badge, the Regular Member must have included the Spouse on their application and must meet the definition of a Spouse as outlined under Colorado State Law. The Spouse will have to certify eligibility on the application, previously attended a safety orientation verifiable by documentation, and must complete the Spouse Application during Spouse Badge Renewal from August 15th – 31st. The Application link will be posted below during that time. (First time Spouse Badge applicants will complete the application at a later date subsequent to safety orientation attendance.)
  4. Safety orientations are only held in August and September of each year. An RSVP is not necessary to attend. There is no make-up date so check the calendar for dates/times and be sure to let us know at the safety orientation that you are there to obtain a Spouse Badge. Following attendance at a safety orientation, the Spouse must complete an application (in that order).
  5. To maintain a Spouse Badge, the Spouse must complete the Spouse Application every subsequent year during Spouse Badge Renewal August 15th – 31st. If the Spouse fails to meet the deadline, the Spouse will have to start the process over by attending a safety orientation. Questions should be directed to the Member Services Coordinator at membership@ncrgc.org.

Next you must AGREE to the HOUSEHOLD MEMBERSHIP POLICYGUEST POLICYHOLD HARMLESS AGREEMENT and RANGE SAFETY RULES. Please read this information carefully as you are accountable for knowing and following the rules. Thank you! 

----------------------------------------------------------------------

HOUSEHOLD MEMBERSHIP POLICY

The Club offers one type of membership--a Household membership is offered to:

  • Adult 18 years of age or older who can legally possess a firearm,
  • Their Spouse (by marriage or civil union recognized under Colorado law), and
  • Any children under 18 years of age (by blood or adoption, who are residents of the Adult's household, including a ward or foster child).

The adult is designated as the Regular member and the spouse is designated as the Associate member. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a badged Regular or Associate member at all times while on Club property. Badges are issued to Regular and Associate members who complete a waiver and agree to follow the Range Safety Rules. Unexpired badges are club property and MUST be returned if requested upon suspension or early termination of membership. Failure to return badge(s) upon request may result in disciplinary action that could include cost of re-badging entire membership. The Board can set additional requirements for the issuance of badges (e.g., required safety orientations for new members). An Associate member is entitled to all the rights, privileges and responsibilities of the Regular member with the exception of the right to vote on matters concerning the Club or to hold an elected office. Badges are non-transferable and must not be shared.

to follow the Household Membership Policy

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GUEST POLICY

A Household membership is authorized to bring a total of twelve (12) guests per year with no more than two (2) guests per visit, per badged Regular or Associate member. Regular and Associate members must accompany their guests at all times while on Club property. If only one Regular or Associate member with a badge are present, then only two (2) guests can be brought at one time. If both the Regular and Associate members with badges are present, then four (4) guests can be brought at one time. The Regular or Associate member is responsible for ensuring that guest waivers are completed, range safety rules are followed, and guest badges are worn. Guest badges are non-transferrable and good only for one day. Subsequent visits require a new waiver and badge. Failure to follow the guest policy constitutes a serious safety violation which may result in suspension or expulsion.
