Things you need to know:
- This site is not compatible with Internet Explorer. It will work fine with any other major modern web browser, however.
- If you are purchasing a membership for another member as well, you must log out between purchases. Once you have logged out, the system is ready to accept another sign-up.
- Each account requires a unique email address (i.e. – that email address cannot have been used for another member).
STEP 3: Review the FAQs below
The following section contains the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) members have asked.
We strongly encourage you to review these.
It's telling me my postal code is wrong ("Incomplete postal code"). It's not wrong though - I've double-checked over and over. What is happening?
Why do I have to enter an email address for my kids? I don't know if I'm comfortable with that.
The purpose of this is to be able to contact our youth members and their parents to make them aware of youth events and youth programs we’re planning. This would only be for club use and is mainly intended for kids 14-16 and older, but only if you’re comfortable with that. If you’re not comfortable (which we completely understand) simply enter “email@example.com” in this field instead.
I want to purchase a membership for myself, then purchase a membership for someone else. How do I do this?
Answer: You must log out between purchases. Once you have logged out, the system is ready to accept another sign-up. Also, each account requires a unique email address for the primary account member. If you have run into problems, we’ll have to reset the account and you’ll have to re-do the second purchase. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include details of the memberships you were trying to purchase if this is the case.
I made an error entering my spouse/child's information. How do I fix it?
Answer: If you entered a valid email address for that family member, they will receive a link to log in with. (Please note: if they try to log in on the same computer as you, make sure you log out first). They can edit much of their own data, but not their birth date. If you did not supply a valid email for them or if the error is with their birth date, we’ll have to correct the information for you. Please contact us at email@example.com and include details of the information that needs changing.
I just finished renewing and I see the link for the orientation. Do I have re-do the orientation too?
Answer: If you’re renewing, it’s optional for you at this point. You can if you’d like to, as it’s a good review, but it’s not something you have to do. If you’re signing up for a new membership, it’s mandatory.
STEP 4: Select your membership type
Once you have reviewed the information in Steps 1 through 3 above, select the membership type you would like to purchase from the options below.
A Regular Membership is for adult individuals 18 years of age or older on the day of purchase. This membership includes access to the Association’s recreational facilities and the archery range.
Regular with Range Privileges
All the benefits included with a Regular Membership with the addition of access to the firearms ranges.
A Family Membership is for families whose head of household is 18 years of age or older on the day of purchase and includes their Dependents (a spouse/partner and any children under 18). This membership includes access to the Association’s recreational facilities and the archery range.
Family with Range Privileges
All the benefits included with a Family Membership with the addition of access to the firearms ranges.
A Youth Membership is for individual children under the age of 18 on the day of purchase. This membership includes access to the Association’s recreational facilities and the archery range. This membership also includes access to the firearms ranges; to be accompanied by an adult Member with Range Privileges if required by the Facility Rules.
STEP 5: read your welcome email
Once you have completed your membership purchase, you will receive a welcome email at the email address you registered with. This email is important and contains critical information you need in order to to be able to continue. Read this email completely and follow its instructions.
If you have not received the welcome email, check your spam folder. If it ended up in your spam folder, instruct your email software that ‘@spfga.ca’ is not spam (you may need to consult the Help in your email software for this). This is important, because you will be receiving other emails from the club and you need to ensure they do not get treated as spam either.
If you have not received the welcome email and it is not in your spam folder, contact the office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at (780) 467-0085 during normal business hours.
STEP 6: Complete the online orientation
Enter your member portal and select ‘Orientation Exam’ from the menu on the left to begin the exam. This exam is mandatory for all new members. You must complete and pass this exam in order to receive the electronic gate access card you will need to access the property.
STEP 7: Print your membership card
You must have proof of your membership with you whenever you are on the property. You may be asked at any time to demonstrate your current SPFGA membership.
An environmentally friendly option to printing is to screenshot it on your phone.
You are also able to purchase a plastic card by clicking the ‘Buy Membership Card’ link in your member portal.
STEP 8: Wait for your electronic gate access card
Once you have completed and passed your Orientation Exam, the office will prepare and send your electronic gate access card.
Do not go out to the property before receiving your electronic gate access card. The property has an automated gate with a scan pad and you will not be able to access the property until this card arrives. It will take approximately two to three weeks from the time of passing the Orientation Exam for your electronic gate access card to arrive by mail.
If more than three weeks have passed since you completed your exam, please contact the office by email at email@example.com or by telephone during normal business hours.
If you would prefer to pick up you card in person, contact the office to arrange a time during normal business hours to pick it up.
