    We're in the process of starting a new club here. We will be an NFAA and ASA club. Both of these organizations offer insurance, and you'll need that. I know the NFAA insurance also protects the landowner, but I'm not sure if the ASA insurance does.

    As for dues, I think it mainly is your decision. There is no set rate. To get chartered with one of the organizations above, a portion of your dues will go to them so set your dues accordingly.

    To give you an idea our club dues are $55.00 for a Family membership a year, and we have 130 active members. That includes $15.00 that goes to State dues. We have NFAA and State Shoots at our club too and 3D Shoots, Traditional Shoots, Harvest Shoots and other Fun Shoots at our club. Do what you want it was just an idea to let you know what we charge. We have been around since 1953. Double TT Archery Club.

    Dues can range from 25 dollars up to 100+ the choice is should really be up to you and the other members or at least the officers of the club.

    Costs are regional considerations. For example, here in NJ, where land goes from $50K to $300K/acre, membership $ is more of an issue than in areas where costs might be 1/10th to 1/100th of that.

    Cost of an outbuilding?

    A set of Mackenzies?

    10 members or a hundred?

    I don't know about starting an archery club, but I was involved in starting a trap club. This had been a privately ran club that closed. We got some of the shooters together and restarted. It took quite a bit of work and money. The initial operation funds were started by about 150 members who all agreed to pay $200 ea. to funded the club. This was to buy the initial stuff needed to reopen. After the club was reopen we would allow outside people to shoot, but their prices were higher than club members and to join the club, the new member had to pay $200 initiation fee. It has worked out and you might have to try something like this. You could do some type of fund raising event, but I think that would produce gain and would take a long time to get the necessary operation funds.

    You will have to develop a budget. You will have to get several people to help and they need to get their friends to come to some sort of formation meeting. You will also need to get a strong commitment from some of these new members to run things and not let yourself get sucked in.
