Get your grant application moved to the top of the pile as an NRA Gold Medal Club
Fairfax, Virginia - What have you been waiting for?
It's the last day. The closing day. The final day that you can register as an NRA Gold Medal Club for 2013. Why do that ... a number of reason.
Just ask the folks at the Cumberland Riflemen in Millville, New Jersey or the Minnesota's So is the Northwestern Gun Club in Duluth. Both will tell you about the sense of pride and satisfaction that comes with achieving such a goal.
Then there are great outfits like the River City Rifle & Pistol Club in Mason City, Iowa and the White Oak Rod & Gun Club in North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania that have been with the program for a while now too. All doing great work helping to advance America's long tradition of excelling at the shooting sports.
If you meet all the requirements, then print up an application, fill it out and put it in today's mail.
So what are the requirements? You must:
- Be a 100% NRA Club
- Have a Club Newsletter (online/email newsletters are acceptable)
- Belong to your NRA State Association
- Operate (of have operated) an NRA Youth Program at the club
- Participate in NRA's Membership Recruiting Program
One of the biggest benefits of being an NRA Gold Medal Club is the preferential treatment you'll receive when it comes to NRA's Range Grant program.
That means you can qualify for a $5,000 award that goes to the acquisition, development, and improvement of your shooting facilities. As a Gold Medal Club member, your application moves directly to the front of the line.
