A full membership entitles the member (and family) to attend and participate in all club activities (meetings, projects, pyro events, social gatherings, etc). Members also have access to the club list server to talk about all things pyro related and are able to receive the club newsletter.
In addition, full members are able to build and fire pyrotechnic devices at specific club events. The club also holds a formal training seminar on pyro safety at least once a year – members are encouraged to attend at a discounted rate. We also hold informal safety talks on a regular basis.
All members are charged a $10 event fee per person when you attend a build/shoot weekend. This fee is collected at the shoot site the day of the build/shoot. The first event you attend as a new member is free. We also have the option of paying the years event fee in advance.
The knowledge and skills gained through participating in club events may enable the member to eventually work on a crew with 1.3G display companies.
If you are not sure you wish to join, we offer a one time visitors fee of $25 in which you can attend the event (usually a club build and shoot). You cannot build or shoot but you can talk to the members and watch from inside the club area. If you do wish to join, the $25 can be applied to a full membership.
The club shoot site is about 50 miles east of Denver in an open field. A portable toilet is available, however the nearest food and gasoline is 20 miles away. Members must be self sufficient, providing their own PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), food and water (sometimes sun screen and insect repellent), and adequate clothing for both hot and cold conditions on the same day. More details will be explained when you are a member.
