Join the Club
Southborough Rod & Gun Club is currently accepting applications for new members. If you would like to join, please read the answers to some commonly asked questions below, then fill out the Membership Application using the link to the left (above for mobile users). If you still have questions, please email
Note: Please download the Membership Application and open it with Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader. This will allow you to complete the form electronically, which keeps our Secretary happy since there is no handwriting deciphering involved.
How do I become a member?
You will need to fill out an application. Applications are available at the Main Clubhouse or may be downloaded via the link above.
You must provide a Letter of Introduction if you do not have a Sponsor. A Sponsor is a club member who is in good standing and has been a member for at least two (2) years. If you do not have a sponsor and would like to find one, please attend a monthly meeting or any other club function to get to know a few members that may sponsor you. For upcoming club events, check out our Events page.
Incomplete or illegible applications will not be accepted.
Completed Applications may be dropped off at the Mailbox inside the Main Clubhouse or mailed to our post office box. DO NOT LEAVE MONEY AT THIS TIME.
You will be contacted by the Membership Committee for an interview. You must bring a Government Issued ID (LTC, FID or Driver’s License) with full legal name and current address to the Interview. You should expect a minimum of two (2) months to process the application and schedule an Interview.
Any questions regarding this process should be emailed to: email@example.com
The Board of Directors meets the first Thursday of the month to review/approve new member applications as part of their normal course of business for the evening. If you are accepted, you will receive an e‐mail from the Club Secretary via firstname.lastname@example.org notifying you when the next New Member Orientation will be held. Note: You should add email@example.com to your contact list to ensure that email from us does not end up in your spam folder. Orientation meetings are held the Saturday morning (9:00 AM) after the first Thursday of the month. YOU MUST ATTEND AN ORIENTATION MEETING TO BECOME A MEMBER!
Thank you for your interest in Southborough Rod and Gun Club.
How much are dues?
Dues are currently $125 per year and are pro‐rated for the first year of membership. At orientation you must also pay an initiation fee ($100), and an Access Card fee of $10. Dues are due December 31st for the upcoming year.
What are the different types of membership?
The majority of Club members are "Regular Members". This means that the individual is over 18 years of age, pays the normal yearly dues, and is able to vote at Club meetings.
Children 14 to 17 years of age can also join the Club. They are called "Junior Members" and hold all the same privileges as Regular Members except for the ability to vote. Yearly dues for Junior Members are only $50 a year, and the application and new member fees are waived. Prospective Junior Members must complete a Membership Application (with approval of their parent or guardian) and be approved by the Board of Directors.
After 15 consecutive years of membership, those that reach the age of 65 become "Life Members". Life Members retain all privileges of regular membership, but they no longer have to pay the yearly dues.
The last class of membership is designated as "Honorary Members". The club may have up to five honorary members, and they are voted on by the Board of Directors. Presently, the Club has one Honorary Member.
