All Members are issued a KDFGC Membership Card. These cards are used to identify Members and electronically register their access on Club Ranges. Membership Cards include information about: Member Photo; Member Name; Member Number; Membership Type; Range Authorizations; RFID/Access Number.
- All Members must use their Membership Card to individually register their ingress and egress from Club property and secured Ranges. This is be done by “swiping” your Membership Card at secure access points. Members that do not register their entry onto Club Property and secured Ranges are trespassing.
- Members must always display their Membership Card on their person while on Club Ranges. For safety, Membership Cards can be temporarily stowed during action events, such as shooting an IPSC course of fire.
- All Membership Cards are RFID enabled and secure access points use a RFID reader to record the Member’s access card number and the time and date of their ingress and egress. As required by regulation, this information is saved for six years or longer for reporting purposes.
- Access information is used for Club administration purposes but, as per the Firearms Act, may also be requested by a Chief Firearms Officer (CFO) to validate member participation in target practice or shooting competitions so as to verify a Member’s use of restricted firearms within the previous five years.
- Range authorizations (i.e. an authorization to use a particular Range without supervision) is indicated by coloured pips on the front of the Membership Card: Black (IPSC Ranges); Red (Handgun Ranges); Blue (Rifle Ranges); Green (Archery Ranges).
- Members must not share their Membership Cards.
- Lost or stolen Membership Cards must be reported to the Club Office immediately.
- New and replacement Membership Cards are available at the Club Office along with KDFGC lanyards.
