Founding Member - Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is a Founding Member?

A. Clyde Goodbread was excited to have a shotgun club for him and his friends to enjoy... however, he couldn't afford to do it on his own. Many of Clyde's friends contributed to the cause and together created Amelia Shotgun Sports. The kindness and generosity of the Founding Members was reciprocated with special discounted rates on target fees and club privileges. As owner of Amelia Shotgun Sports I am happy to honor the generosity of Clyde's friends by creating special rates and privileges for them. Rates for Founding Members are categorized at the VIP Membership Level.


Q. What benefits do the Founding Members have?

A. Some Founding Members still have money/credit on account which they can use toward target fees and push cart/golf cart/shotgun rentals at the club.  Most Founding Members have already transferred their credit onto their LongRange Count Down Card, I welcome you to do the same. Founding Members are Lifetime Members of the club and receive all VIP Membership Level Rates. They are the only shooters welcome to use the club outside normals business hours. However, this is not my first preference... I do ask that Founding Members make every effort to shoot within our established business hours when we are fully staffed and able to ensure their safety. If you are a Founding Member and interested in shooting during our closed hours I would like to discuss the options with you.

Q. Can Founding Members still use the back gate?

A. Founding Members use to have access to the club via a back gate. The road to this gate goes through a Goodbread family neighborhood. For security reasons and to respect the privacy of the Goodbreads... this gate is locked and will not be used.


Q. Can Founding Members bring a non-member to shoot at the club and pay for them with their credit account?

A.  Yes, Founding Members can bring and pay for a non-member guest, however, the guest will be charged at the Non-Member/Guest rate.


Q. What happens when a Founding Member's monies on account are used up?

A.  We prefer that Founding Member transfer their credit onto a LongRange Count Down Card. They are able to load their card at a discounted Bulk Rate if 1000 or more targets are "purchased"using their credit. The exchange rate falls under the category "Credit or Debit Card." Once the credit balance is gone it is unnecessary to add more money to your account. Founding Members remain Founding Members and continue to get VIP Membership Level prices even if their account balance is zero. Just like a Lifetime Member, Founding Members will not have annual member fees and will be able to enjoy VIP Membership Level Rates.


Q. Want to be a Founding Member?

A. Sorry, the opportunity to be a Founding Member has ended... since the "Founding" of the club has already occurred. If you would like to also have VIP Membership Level Rates you can join as a Lifetime Member. The cost to be a Lifetime Member is a one time fee of $2,500.00, which extends to your spouse and children living at home who are under the age of 18. You can apply to be a Lifetime Member by completing our Membership Application.
