Hamilton Angling & Hunting Association

Hamilton Angling and Hunting Association is a private members club, new members are only accepted by being sponsored by an existing club member.  There is no exception to this. 

As the club typically operates at its capacity, it is not possible to determine if there will be available vacancies prior to the close of membership renewal on December 15th.

If you are an existing club member and wish to sponsor a new member, please see, and follow these requirements and directions.

  • 1.       A sponsor must have been a member for at least 12 months at the time of application.
  • 2.       You may only sponsor one new member per year.  Exceptions may be made under special circumstances by the membership committee.
  • 3.       Two dates for new member orientations will be posted on this website prior to November 1.  Each sponsor along with their new member must attend one of these two dates.  As this orientation is essential and required for safety, no exceptions will be made to this requirement for any reason.  Do not sponsor a new member without first confirming that you both will be able to attend one of these two dates. Sponsors are required to provide successful candidates with a personal orientation of the Clubhouse and ranges, and such orientation will include range operation, rules, and maintenance requirements.
  • 4.        For a period of 12 months, it is expected the sponsor will continue to monitor and mentor their candidate in all aspects of accepted club practices and conduct.
  • 5.       All new candidates must provide and maintain a email address.  This is essential as email is the primary method H.A.H.A. uses to communicate with members.
  • 6.       Should a new member become problematic within their first year, the sponsor will lose their privilege to sponsor new members in the future. 
  • 7.       Sponsors are responsible for the new members actions during the first year.
  • 8.       Blank applications will be available for download off this site starting November 1 and must be sent via email to: vicepresident@hahaclub.ca 
  • 9.       Applications for new members will only be accepted from November 1 and December 15 of each year. No applications will be accepted after December 15. 
  • 10.   Once all the applications have been received, a potential candidate list will be created.  It will be reviewed by the membership committee and the following process will take place:

a.       Step 1: The committee will decide using a consensus-based approach and accept any new member based on “obvious merit” of either the candidate or the sponsor.  Examples of obvious merit would be sponsors who regularly volunteer and provide service to the club or candidates that have skills or associations which would benefit the club.  The membership committee may also reject any candidate they feel would not make a good club member.

b.       Step 2: The remaining candidates will be chosen using a random draw system to fill the remaining vacancies.

Hamilton Angling and Hunting Association is a not-for-profit organization.
