Time to Start Booking 2017 Events
« on: September 14, 2016, 02:32:40 PM »
Hi Team!

As we head into the last quarter of 2016 it is time for us to start planning and booking 2017 events. Several states (e.g., IN, OH, TX) already have 2017 events scheduled.

The FAQ with info on the Host App has been updated at:

Long story short - if a range already has a host app on file then they are good to go. You do not need to fill out a new one each year. UNLESS something called Additional Insured is needed by the range. That isn't usually the case though.
If you are making an Additional Insured request please make sure that you have the below information.  Please do not wait until the last moment to make the request and include both WHYWON and EROYLE on the request.

E-mail Address of the Individuals making the request:

Forum name of the Individuals making the request:

Range Information

Name of Host Range:
Name of Range Contact Person:    
Physical Address of the range:
Mailing address of the range:
Dates of all events scheduled for that range:

E-mail address of the individuals to receive copies of the certificate.  This should include the requester.

Thank you


And the host app is much shorter now. It just gets the ball rolling. When entering the EIP is when we start requiring more data which we rely on the person working with the club to obtain.
