Seattle Rifle and Pistol Association (“SRPA”) Member Code of Conduct

SRPA is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all members and guests. To promote safety and comfort for all, all individuals are asked to act appropriately at all times when in our facility or participating in our programs.

We expect persons using SRPA ranges to act maturely, to behave responsibly, and to respect the rights and dignity of others. The actions listed below are not an all-inclusive list of behaviors considered prohibited in our facilities or programs.

• Using or being under the influence of alcohol on SRPA property, in SRPA vehicles, or at SRPA-sponsored programs except at board-approved events (i.e the annual meeting).
• Using, possessing or being under the influence of marijuana, illegal chemicals or illegal substances on SRPA property, in SRPA vehicles, or at SRPA-sponsored programs.
• Note:  Although marijuana has been legalized in Washington, it remains an illegal substance under federal law. 
• Smoking on SRPA property - SRPA and its property is a smoke-free environment.
• Harassment or intimidation by words, gestures, body language, or any type of menacing behavior.
• Physical contact with another person in an angry, aggressive, inappropriate or threatening way.
• Verbally abusive behavior, including angry or vulgar language, swearing, name-calling, or shouting.
• Sexually explicit conversation or behavior; any sexual contact with another person.
• Theft or behavior that results in the destruction or loss of property.
• Loitering within or on the grounds of the SRPA.

In addition, SRPA reserves the right to deny access or membership to any person who has been accused or convicted of any crime involving sexual abuse, is or has been a registered sex offender, has ever been convicted of any offense relating to the use, sale, possession, or transportation of narcotics or habit forming and/or dangerous drugs, or is presently or habitually under the influence of dangerous drugs or chemicals, narcotics, or intoxicating beverages.

Members and guests are encouraged to take responsibility for their personal comfort and safety by asking any person whose behavior threatens their comfort to refrain from such behavior. Anyone who feels uncomfortable in confronting a person directly should report the behavior to a staff member.

SRPA staff members are eager to be of assistance. Members and guests should not hesitate to notify a staff member if assistance is needed.
In order to be able to carry out these policies, we ask that members and guests identify themselves to staff when asked.

SRPA will investigate all reported incidents. Suspension or termination of SRPA membership privileges may result from a determination by the Board of Directors if in the Board’s opinion a violation of the SRPA Member Code of Conduct has occurred.
