I GIVE IT A TRY?
We have gear we can loan new recruits while they
are “trying out” this new experience. For your first event, you can
bring a very small amount of equipment and be able to get started.
We will loan you a rifle, all supporting gear,
known as “leathers,” a suitable uniform, and even a tent to sleep in.
To your first event, you will need to bring the
Food and water for your own use
The plainest brown or black leather shoes you own
Sleeping gear: sleeping bag, pillow, blankets
Warm undergarments for the cool evening to wear under your uniform
Your checkbook to pay the WCWA dues for the current year
A good attitude!
Additional details: In order for insurance to
cover you, you must be members of our parent club, WCWA. Cost is very reasonable:
$25/individual or $40/family membership.
ALSO, you will need to complete a safety test. This takes about 30 minutes to complete.
In addition, our 15th Alabama
club dues are very reasonable: $10/year per family due upon joining. We also
have a powder dues fee of $50/year or $15/event. This covers black powder and
caps that you use throughout the season.
New members are “sponsored” by a current
member, or the Recruiting Officer of the club. You will be asked to complete
a Registration form and pay $10/unit dues in order to initiate membership.
