Memberships

Amateur and Professional Day Use Memberships

Thank you for becoming a member of the Steve Ferguson Memorial Retriever Grounds, Inc. You must be a member of SFMRG to reserve training areas or camping spots.  You must be a member of SFMRG to handle a retriever on these grounds.  Amateur, VIP and Professional memberships extend to members of a household at least 18 years old.  The current membership period extends through December 31 2018.

Scroll to the bottom of the page to choose your membership type and pay online.

Any person handling and or training a retriever on the grounds must be a member and pay the listed fees below.  Throwers, bird boys and non-handling/training guests must sign a Hold Harmless Agreement, however, they are exempt from the handling/training fees.  Completing a Hold Harmless Agreement may be accomplished online under the Guest tab.

Amateur Basic Membership - $125

SFMRG will use the definition of an Amateur as specified in the AKC Standing Recommendations of the Retriever Advisory Board:  For the purposes of eligibility of a person to compete in an Amateur All-Age Stake the time period applicable shall be one year preceding the trial in question.

The non-refundable $125.00 membership application fee is valid through December 31, 2018. This fee allows you to reserve an area for training an unlimited number of times per month, but requires a $25 per day use fee for each day reserved.  Reservation holders may also access unreserved Areas for training the same day as their reservation.  An unlimited number of personal dogs may be handled.

Amateur VIP Membership - $500

The non-refundable $500.00 membership application fee is valid through December 31, 2018. This fee allows amateur trainers only to reserve areas for training an unlimited number of times per month. Reservation holders may also access unreserved Areas for training the same day as their reservation. This fee includes the application fee, day use fees and handling an unlimited number of personal dogs.

Professional Trainer Membership - $125

The non-refundable $125.00 membership application fee is valid through December 31, 2018. This fee allows you to reserve an area for training for a maximum of 5 days per month, but requires a $25 per day use fee for each day reserved.  An unlimited number of client or personal dogs may be handled. 

Clients training with their professional trainer AND handling dogs must be members of SFRMG.  The daily usage fee is waived as it is covered by the Professional Trainer Membership Daily Usage Fee.

Professionals are defined as: Anyone who does NOT meet the eligibility requirements to compete as an Amateur as defined by the AKC. See above.
