Become A Member

Please only use this form if you require a 2017 membership.

Commencing with the 2016 membership year, we have implemented the facilities for members to join online and pay using credit or Visa debit cards through PayPal. This facility as been requested a great deal by members and we are happy to provide it. A PayPal account is not necessary in order to pay with a credit or VISA debit card although if you do happen to have a PayPal account with a linked bank account, you can pay your membership fees using your bank account too! PayPal is the Internets primary online payment processor and you couldn’t be in safer hands. Your online payment is handled entirely by a secure session directly with PayPal so your security is guaranteed. Check out PayPals security information here.

Online processing has many benefits, the primary ones being speed and convenience. Members joining via the online portal will receive an email with a membership number as evidence of membership rather than the previous membership card and will no longer have to wait for the time-consuming manual membership process to complete before having access to BCWF membership etc.

We realize that for some, this will not necessarily be a welcome change; there are those those that still prefer to deal with cash or talk with a real person to join up. To accommodate this, we will be taking both online and manual memberships at each general meeting, at Henry Range through our caretaker there (Rick Gammon) and within a short time period, we should have the facility for prospective members to do the same at Dorman Range and also through the archery team at the Nanoose Pentecostal Camp.

For those that cannot make it to a meeting, a range or the archery facility and cannot use the online portal, we still accept a manual form, available here soon. Please bear in mind that the manual processing time can be long.

Using the online form

  • The membership form is dynamic which means that you only see the options available depending on the level of club membership you have chosen under ‘Membership Category’
  • In order to use the self-serve online membership portal, an email address is required. If you do not have an email address and do not wish to obtain one, please attend a monthly meeting or one of the alternative locations in order to have your application processed and receive proof of membership.
  • You do not need a PayPal account to use the online payment processing facility. Simply choose the link at the bottom of the window labelled ‘Don’t have a PayPal account?’ if you do not already have an account.
