Membership

Oranco Bowmen is a private archery club, open to its members 7 days a week. The advantage to being a member is the availability of the range. When you are a member, the range is accessible for practice at the crack of dawn, mid-day, or in the evening. When you are ready, the range is ready for you.

We are a family oriented archery club. We know that children are the future of the sport and we want to encourage archery as a family activity. Your membership rate includes membership for you, your spouse, and your immediate children up to 24 years old. We have monthly general membership meetings on the 2nd Tuesday of each month where we discuss and vote on a variety of issues affecting the club. Members are strongly urged to attend the general membership meetings.

If you would like to become a member of the club, individual or family dues are only $180.00 per year, plus membership in CBH/SAA which is $40.00, plus a $30.00 initiation fee = $245.00. The initiation fee is ONE TIME ONLY unless membership lapses.

Membership gives you daily use of the range, and a monthly newsletter to keep you informed of what is happening at the club and around Southern California. Although $180.00 may seem like a lot initially, it breaks down to just $15.00 per month. Volunteering at the range can substantially lower the yearly membership dues.

The memberships run from June 1st to June 1st each year. This assists in keeping the records more manageable. When you first sign up for an Oranco membership, the first year is pro-rated from $180.00 depending on when you sign up.

Membership Application (Must be submitted in person at our Clubhouse)

June - $180 July - $165 August - $150 September - $135
October - $120 November - $105 December - $90 January - $75
February - $60 March - $45 & $180 April - $30 & $180 May - $15 & $180

The above chart does NOT include the CBH/SAA-$40.00 or the $30.00 initial sign-up fee. This $30.00 new member/delinquent fee is charged to all new members (and delinquent members who have let their membership expire as of June 1 each year).

If you were to sign up in March, you dues would be $50.00 & $185 for the following year, a total of $235. Due to the costs of the new member packets and other materials, we cannot accept memberships for only $15-$45. As stated above, there is an initial sign-up fee of $30.00. This is a one-time fee, assessed at the start of a new membership. It is not repeated, unless current membership is allowed to expire. It will then be charged as a new member fee. There is also the $40.00 fee for CBH / SAA, which starts when the application is received by CBH. Join CBH/SAA

If you do not keep your membership current, you loose your continuous membership credits toward membership anniversary awards. You are also assessed the $30.00 sign-up fee as a new member when you re-join. But your previously recorded work parties will be safe, and will give you credit when joining later in the year. If membership is not renewed, recorded work parties cannot be saved for a second term and are forfeited.

All members of Oranco are required to belong to the California Bowmen Hunters / State Archery Association (CBH / SAA) organization. This state organization provides education, and assistance to all archers. They also watch out for our rights as archers and citizens. A CBH membership card also gives you a $5.00 registration discount for 3-D tournaments at Oranco and other archery clubs. A separate yearly fee enrolls you with all three associations. The cost at this time is:

CBH / SAA (only): Adult HOH only $40.00

(Required) Youth w/o parent/guardian $15.00
