Membership Benefits

By becoming a member you are entitled to use the club's indoor and outdoor range, as well as participate in weekly events such as trap shooting without having to pay the range fee.

You also receive a voice in the community and a chance to contribute to natural resource and recreation issues in the area. 

As a BVRG member you are also part of the BC Wildlife Federation as we are an affiliate club. This gives you secondary liability insurance (primary if you do not have it through your home owners insurance).  You are also covered for your liability on your ORV or ATV (if you use public roads at all you need ICBC's additional insurance).  BCWF has its own benefits also which include the magazine, Outdoor Edge and various discounts on merchandise and services.  We notify the BCWF monthly of new members so please be a bit patient when waiting for your magazine etc.  If your submission goes in too close to publication it may be on the next cycle.  For more information on what is available to you keep an eye out for your package or click here to go to the BC Wildlife Federation's website.

We recognize that some of our members are focused on the shooting sports, and prefer the primary insurance the National Firearms Association carries.  As we are still an NFA club, members can purchase the additional NFA insurance with their membership for 20.00 (cost of 14.95 plus administration fee).  This will be an add-on to the membership price and strictly optional.  Please contact the membership coordinator to have this option added to your membership.  

What are my fees used for?
    Well almost half of the fee goes towards liability insurance for our members through the BC Wildlife Federation.  After that there is the insurance on the buildings and grounds, heat and lights, upkeep of the range and the grounds, snowplowing and road maintenance and the list goes on.    

     We are VERY LUCKY to have our club including the range and grounds and it is a result of thousands of hours of volunteer work over the 90+ years the club has been in existence.  In addition, the support of the community, business and surrounding area is amazing and cannot be overstated!!  We hope that you will work to keep the club strong, growing and successful!!!
