General members have access to only 3 of the shooting pads at TMSA. The Public Range #1, the Rifle Range #11 and the Lower Member/Shotgun Range #3 . A member may take 1 day card with them on the Range #3 and Rifle range #11. If you meet qualification criteria, you may also join one of our additional user groups, CMPS (Coast Mountain Practical Shooters) or TMAR (Thompson Mountain Action Rifle). Proof of membership ipsc # and or Case # will be required .
Membership has its privileges and rewards, but also has its responsibilities. TMSA members are expected to attend one or more work parties per year. TMSA is a volunteer organization, and without volunteers to help with the general maintenance of the club facilities, the costs for membership will have to increase.
Members must have their current membership card displayed at all times while on the range property. Failure to produce a valid Picture ID membership card will require a non-refundable day card.
