    I know it’s an old post ......Just joined Holbrook and can’t say enough about it. Very active club and to me that’s a plus. Guys seem very helpful at events for newbs and that’s a plus to me.

    Signatures are easy to get, theres always something going on.
    Come on down this friday for bowling pins, help set-up and take daown. Bring a handgun, its a good time.
    Next saturday (26th) is the Steel Challenge shoot, get a sig for set-up and take down.
    Come by on a saturday and for a sig I'll work you like a rented mule!
    Go to the gen meetings, get a sig. If you happen to mention that you'd like to see some 1" a.r. plates at the 100/200 yd, that would be great
    The initial process goes as quick as you want it to.

    What is their guest policy? Im looking for a range near me that doesnt limit the guests I bring. I dont plan to bring a crowd, but want the liberty to bring a buddy and introduce him/her to shooting from time to time.

    Does anyone know if they are taking new members? Im getting the impression they arent interested in increasing their membership, and before I commit my nonrefundable waiting list deposit, I want to have a better impression of if they will even take me, or if they do, do I have to spend several months on a waiting list?

    Thanks,

    Yes accepting new members but depending on how many are on the list there'll probably be a little bit of a wait. I know they've been holding orientations on a regular basis. Email them and ask [email protected]

    So you give them $50 to get on a waiting list, with no time limit, and if they decide they don't want you as a member, they keep your 50 bucks? That can't be right? Serious question.

    the club is still under the current membership cap, the wait list is being used to schedule those new members in for the club orientation class. so depending on how many are waiting to get the orientation done there may be a delay to actually get the membership process started. i recommended stopping by either the 1st or 3rd Monday meeting @ 7pm and talking to the new membership table to find out how long the list is at this point.

    the $50 non-refundable was set up when we were at the cap. it was setup to then start a wait-list till spots available, and this way only serious people willing to pay a non-refundable deposit while they wait for a spot to open. we currently are back under the cap and the wait list is used to schedule in the new members for orientation. yes the deposit is still non-refundable, but with spots currently open the wait time is only for scheduling in the orientation.

    New resident to Brockton and the club is literally less then 2 miles from me. I am familiar with the Braintree club and liked there 24 hour access and spouse access anytime policy. I have emailed Holbrook as I passed by and couldn’t access the club to speak to someone. Can a member verify if a spouse is exempt from their guest policy? Would like to start the process as the proximity is so ideal and my wife also enjoys shooting.

    The family membership will include your wife. Saturday morning work party 8 to12 are the best time to catch a club officer if you want to chat and have a look around.

    PM me if you have any q's.
