Joining PARC is Easy
Download our membership form which is in PDF format. After you have printed it out and filled it in, either mail it or, better yet bring it in person to the next meeting! Membership types and fees can be found on the form.
If you want to get your license, we can help! Why not come on out to one of our meetings and meet the gang? You will be most welcome.
The club meets on the first Tuesday of every month, except for July and August.
