How to become a member

Most of the year the application to become a member (join our waiting) list is closed.  The waiting list to become a member usual opens for a short time after yearly membership renewal is closed.  Club renewal is from Jan 1st till the last day of February. Notice will be sent to the membership and posted on our website before when new membership applications will be taken.  You must complete the application process during this time.  Most years this occurs early in March.

Please note we do not add to the list unless we are accepting application. Sending email saying add me to the waiting list DOES NOT ADD YOU TO OUR WAITING LIST.

If you do not see a way to apply for members below this article the Membership is full, and the waiting list is closed.

Membership is filled from the waiting list in the order they signed up on the web site, first come first served. Please bookmark this site and watch for the waiting list to re-open.

Thank you for your continued interest in Bayou Rifles.In order to become a new member, PLEASE BOOKMARK THIS WEBSITE AND CHECK BACK.
