Is RRPC accepting member applications ?

You may begin the on-line application  process  shown on the membership  page  without waiting for a club meeting. Scans of  your government  ID, NRA card, and proof of legal ability to own firearms can be emailed to membership@RRPC.com to complete those requirements.  See the Membership Application page for more details.

The other requirements for membership include attending the orientation session and completing the work requirement (or buy-out). These can be arranged by email to Orientation@RRPC.org and work@RRPC.org.

The final step after registration, orientation, and the work requirement is being voted in by a quorum of voting members.  Limited meetings have been resumed and applicants will be notified when their meetings are  scheduled.


I'm not  a Member  - can I come shoot at the range?

You must be a member OR the guest of a member to come shoot at RRPC except for scheduled events open to the public listed on the  calendar.   Contact the Activity Directors for more information. The member or event director is responsible for your safety and for your knowing and following the club rules. 

Rivanna Rifle & Pistol Club is a private club range and does not operate in a commercial capacity.  We do not have firearm rentals or range time for rent to the public.  You are welcome to become a member if interested.

RRPC does not currently have scheduled tours but you are invited to  attend the second Thursday new member meeting and talk to the members if you are still deciding whether to join.


I want to become a member. What do I need to do?

Go to the webpage labeled Membership Application. It will lead you through the procedure.

Most of your membership questions including membership types and dues will be answered there.


Who do I contact about the RRPC Orientation Class or my New Member work requirement?

Send an email to orientation@rrpc.org  or  to work@rrpc.org with your questions.


How do I change my member email address, home address, phone number etc. in the club database?  

RRPC is a self-help club - this means that our members are expected to help with the operation of the club since we have no paid employees. Each member is asked to keep their email and street address up to date by following this procedure:

After logging on, go the right hand top of the web page and click "View Profile", then click "Edit Profile".  You can then change profile details as required.  Complete information on the procedure can be  found HERE.


How do I complete my initial login OR change my password?

For instructions on setting password and initial login, read this.


How do I pay dues on-line or by mail?

To pay dues on-line, login then click the "View Profile " button at top of webpage, and then click the "Renew "  button on the right side of the membership details section. 

To pay dues by mail, send a check for the annual $110 dues with members  name to the mailing address at 

P.O. Box 7883 Charlottesville, VA 22906.   (Do not send to the street address).


I've lost my FOB or my FOB is not working. How do I get a new one?

Click to contact membership by email and Mike Johnson can issue a new one for a replacement fee.


I am moving away from the area. What do I need to do to resign?

All that is required is an email notice to membership@rrpc.org.  This will allow you to rejoin without again paying the application fee if you ever return to this area.  You may drop your FOB off at the club or mail to the mailing address above.

You might also consider converting to a non-resident member if you will move more than 75 miles away. This will significantly reduce your dues and still allow you to shoot here if you visit. Contact membership@rrpc.org with your new address, phone number and email.


Does the RRPC have beginner classes for new shooters?

A  Basics of Pistol Shooting class is held on the last Saturday of the month.  For information on this class contact Jerry Pownall at jdpownall@embarqmail.com.  You must reserve a place in this class.


Is RRPC affiliated with the CMP for Member benefits?

RRPC  is an affiliated member of the CMP. The RRPC CMP club number is 26098.


There is a broken plate at the steel Range. What should I do?

This happens all the time. Gather the broken pieces and put them on the table. Tell us about it in an email to buildingsgrounds@rrpc.org. Someone from the Buildings and Grounds Committee will install a new or rewelded plate, and a club member will repair the broken plate.

I see a typo, error, or have an upgrade suggestion on the website. Who do I contact?

Send an email to webmaster@RRPC.org with your comment and feedback.
