How to Join

Membership Eligibility

Membership in Izaak Walton is open to anyone who appreciates the outdoors, and who supports the Izaak Walton League of America's mission. Our members are expected to be of good moral character, to respect the rights of others, and to use the Club in accordance with the rules and regulations established by the Board of Directors.

 How to Join
The easiest way to join is to stop out at our Chapter Meetings!  We have monthly Chapter meetings at our recently remodeled Chapterhouse.  Meetings are the 2nd Thursday of each month- rain or shine!   Come early at 6:00 pm and meet some of our members and enjoy some complimentary dinner! Meetings are at 7:00 pm!

 Membership fees are as follows:  $90 - IWLA Membership / $50 - gate key rental (optional) per year.  (There are Family and Student memberships available as well).
 All memberships and key rentals are valid from Jan 1 - Dec 31.  Memberships purchased after July 1 of a given year will be offered as a 1/2 year PLUS the following year fees.  ($45+$90 with expiration on 12-31 of the following year.  Purchased memberships between July and December 2018 would expire on 12-31-19)

The IWLA membership gives you discounts on trap, skeet, rifle and pistol events (Up to $5 PER EVENT!), as well as a vote and a voice at our regular meetings.  Membership also allows you to rent the optional gate key, which opens up your world!  The gate key allows members access to the grounds to shoot at times that the gates are not already open for a public event.  The gate key is something we take very seriously-- and the Rules of the Range are enforced strictly, so please make sure you understand them and take responsibility for your own actions  Every new member who rents a gate key will need to have a safety orientation of the grounds before they will be issued a key.  Email us at if you have any questions!

Membership isn't just about enjoying the benefits! Volunteers are needed all the time! 
There are many benefits of joining any organization.  Some of the benefits of ours is that you get to have a good time with other great people who share your interest in shooting sports!
Any good organization also needs good volunteers as well.  The Dubuque IWLA Chapter is run by volunteers.  Not only do we need leaders such as the President, the Vice President and the Board of Directors, but we also need others willing to help out with the many important aspects of the organization--
We are always looking for persons who can help with regular events such as trap and skeet shooting, IDPA, and the Zombie Shoots.  Anyone can help anywhere they would like to.   We are also always looking for more persons to assist with special events, such as Becoming and Outdoor Woman, and the Heritage Classic.
Don't feel you need special credentials to help out, you do not!   The clubhouse and grounds also need volunteers with maintence such as grass cutting, bulding repairs, target stands and many other day to day things that some people take for granted!
Please, if you are considering joining also consider helping to keep our club running smoothly by volunteering. 
Contact us if you are interested!
