Didn't they prohibit shooting from 10pm to 5am on the Loeb range after Baker's ridiculous curfew? I know that put a hair across a few members butts.

Nope. Just an interview, orientation, and safety exam. Come check it out.Do you need a sponsor to become a member?
You’re extrapolating far too much from my posts. I’m all about new membership from a broad spectrum of backgrounds.i live in MA for 23 years now, and i have an absolute certain feeling that for an absolute majority of any types of private clubs here, of any types of activities - they all are aimed at reducing their membership count, how it was brilliantly stated above - ' do not need an XXX as a member and seems it would even be better off without him'. it is pretty much universal.
even poor tom brady could not play damn golf at his country club, for how long? and if he was not worthy, then who the hell the rest of us are...
all kidding aside, it is what it is. heh, found a link, fits a bill 100%.
"applicants typically must be sponsored by two current club members and provide the admissions committee with testimonials from seven other people with whom the applicant has a personal relationship. Applicants also have to attend a cocktail reception at the club with members of the admissions committee "
Brady has been quietly admitted to the exclusive club, and his membership gives both he and his wife, Gisele Bündchen, the privilege of using its many amenities.www.bostonglobe.com
You are wrong! Clubs need more paying members to fund the treasury.None of the clubs need any more members. We do need more shooters. The vast majority of the members don't go to the club. I see the same people every time I go.
Stop by the office, your key fob is not working. It is either broken or has been shut off, most likely the former. If it was programmed correctly, it turns the light green and stays green for 2 seconds.Has anyone had trouble getting into MRA lately? I went this morning for the first time in a while and my key fob beeped and the light turned green for a split second, but then it turned red and the door wouldn’t open. I’m paid up, everything is up to date. A wasted trip. :-/
Thanks, I stopped by on Wed and they just replaced it. This is my 3rd key fob in about 5 years.Stop by the office, your key fob is not working. It is either broken or has been shut off, most likely the former. If it was programmed correctly, it turns the light green and stays green for 2 seconds.
When the backlog of applications are processed. Because of COVID the club shrunk its normal orientation size by 50%, its booked out into December 2021. Go to the website and join the eblast or keep an eye on the Facebook page as that will be where it will be announced when the club reopens to new members.Any idea when they’ll start accepting new member applications again?
Great, thank you.When the backlog of applications are processed. Because of COVID the club shrunk its normal orientation size by 50%, its booked out into December 2021. Go to the website and join the eblast or keep an eye on the Facebook page as that will be where it will be announced when the club reopens to new members.
Call during office hours tomorrow or visit the place. The calendar on the website says there's new member orientation in the evening, so I'm sure someone will be there.Is MRA accepting new members or is there still a waiting list? I was a member years ago but let it lapse because I was planning on moving out of state.
