2023 MEMBERSHIP and RENEWALS NOW BEING ACCEPTED!
Submitting your forms and payment in person at BRGFA meetings is preferred but not required. Instructions for completing the process online are below.
Please note -- BRGFA does not pro-rate membership fees. The membership year is January 1st through December 31st.
Before we begin.... Some important notes about BRGFA membership and filling out the application:
Liability insurance with CCFR
Membership Card (Brokenhead River Game and Fish Association)
Voting privileges (Single = 1 vote, Family = 2 votes.)
Events/activities for the year as scheduled by the club
All range use members are required to have completed the most recent orientation. Orientation status is noted on range use cards. Renewing members must have completed the 2022 orientation to maintain their range privileges. New members will receive information on how to set up an orientation with their membership confirmation.
You are required to provide a current PAL number and expiry on your membership form. As per the RCMP, all approved ranges need to keep a record of this info. Please do not send a picture of your PAL card.
A signed copy of the Release of Liability must be submitted with your application. The photo release is optional but appreciated.
The BRGFA membership year is from January 1st through December 31st. There is NO pro-rating. The range lock is changed every January 1st.
The fees due are comprised of three parts: General range membership fee, optional range use fee, and mandatory CCFR membership. The CCFR provides liability insurance that protects both members and BRGFA. For more about CCFR and the insurance coverage please download this info sheet: CCFR INSURANCE HANDOUT. If you are already a CCFR member, you do not need to double payment. Simply provide proof of CCFR membership along with your other forms. Please make sure your CCFR membership will cover the entire calendar year for 2023 if you are a direct member.
* Please note that the senior and student CCFR memberships only cover one person.
Manitoba Wildlife Federation memberships can be processed with your BRGFA membership application if you choose. Joining/renewing with the MWF is no longer mandatory given the switch to CCFR for insurance coverage.
All members who want to use the rifle range, handgun range, and/or member-use sporting clay station MUST pay the range fee and be able to show a stamped range use card whenever using the ranges. BRGFA is more than just a range; Range use fees are not a requirement for membership.
For security reasons, BRGFA is no longer mailing gate keys. If you complete your membership application and payment online, instructions for how to pick up your gate key will come with your membership confirmation from the Membership Chair.
If you have any questions about the forms, fees, or payment process, please send a message using the contact form and the membership chair will get back to you.
