SWGC Membership Information
Sir Walter Gun Club, Inc. is a private club with membership limited to 300 members. To begin the process of becoming a member of SWGC, an applicant should download a Membership Application. The completed membership application must be submitted to the Club Secretary only after the applicant obtains the sponsorship of two Club members in good standing, or one member of the SWGC Board of Directors. The Secretary will present the application to the SWGC Board of Directors for review and consideration. Upon application acceptance, an applicant becomes a Prospective Member and must meet the following requirements:
- Successfully complete a Club Safety Course.
- Attend Club meetings and take an active part in Clubactivities
- Agree to serve on a SWGC committee for the first three years of his/her Club membership and actively participate in committee tasks and work assignments.
- Provide proof of eligibility to purchase and own a firearm in North Carolina.
After successfully completing an evaluation period, the applicant’s sponsor (s) will recommend the Prospective Member for full membership to the Board of Directors by endorsing the Prospective Member Data Sheet and submitting it to the Club Secretary. The Club Secretary will present all documentation to the Board of Directors for final review and approval. If approved for full membership and if a vacancy has occurred, the Prospective Member must purchase one (1) share of stock in Sir Walter Land Development, Inc. The stock is presently priced at $720 per share. The new member is charged an initiation fee of $50.00 and is required to pay annual dues in advance. For the first year, annual dues are prorated for the number of months remaining the year. Annual dues are $150.00.
The share of Sir Walter Land Development, Inc. stock can be returned to the Corporation and reimbursed at 100% of its value, if a member resigns from the Club as a member in good standing, provided that all dues and fees have been paid and there is a new, in-coming member, to take the resigning member's place.
Membership Application Procedure has specific details about the application process. Applicants should attend a membership meeting on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, September through May, at 7:30 PM at the Wake County Shrine Club, 6015 Lead Mine Road, Raleigh, NC.
