TIME TO RENEW YOUR 2023 MEMBERSHIP!!!  

Membership renewal season officially begins October 1, this is an advance announcement for your convenience.

Membership renewal forms ARE AVAILABLE on our website:www.ycfga.org/membership in the Lodge and Clubhouse Building.

To obtain the renewal form from our website, similar to prior years, your ‘full’ 2022 YCFGA gate pass-code (i.e. #### or 22-#### (check your badge sticker)) is the password and will be needed to access the online form, which can then be downloaded, printed, completed and mailed, or hand delivered to Bill Mroz (Membership Chairman) at any of the monthly general meetings. If you have no changes to your profile simply print your name then state NO CHANGES on the 2023 Renewal Form. This past year I had to chase down (4) member addresses that had changed along with wrong 

e-mails. For all these cases I had to mail or telephone the members asking for updated information and then send out a gate sticker again. All renewing members including military are requested to return a completed renewal form. Please note that Military Active and Disabled are required to include a fee for membership. 

****** Lifetime Members are Excluded from filling out a Renewal Form unless you have changes.  

Acceptable payment can be made via: cash, check, and money order (made out to: YCFGA). Upon renewal, you will be sent your 2023 sticker with a new lock combination to immediately affix to your Badge/ID. It will arrive in a small white envelope with a return address from YCFGA, generally a couple weeks after receiving your renewal form.

Additionally, we are pleased to continue offering an electronic payment option via VENMO! For VENMO users, look for York County Fish & Game Assn in the Business section of Venmo and follow regular payment steps to send your renewal payment to YCFGA. 

NOTE: For those using VENMO, you will still need to complete and send in a completed renewal form.

Mail completed renewal forms to:

A delinquent account means your membership is forfeited starting February 1 of the current year as long as fees remain unpaid. For renewal submissions/payment made after January 31 (February 1 through June 30), a $25.00 reinstatement fee will be assessed in addition to the applicable renewal dues to reinstate membership (i.e. Adult membership = $100 + $25 Reinstatement fee = $125).   For renewal submissions/payment made after June 30 (July 1 through December 30), the reinstatement fee is $50.00 plus applicable membership renewal fees. Any member delinquent for the year (January 1 to December 31) will need to reapply as a new member which includes assessment of the initiation fee and membership vote.

 Membership Dues Increase for 2023

Just like everything else these days, costs have risen to the point where the club has no alternative but to raise dues for the upcoming 2023 season for New and Renewal Memberships. Our taxes, both Federal and State, utilities, insurances for the property and liability have contributed to the increase in dues.  There were no easy solutions to this situation, so your continued understanding and support for the club is appreciated by the Elected Officers and Board of Directors of York County Fish and Game Association.  New Member and Renewal membership dues have marginally increased to offset our costs.  We have also added a modest fee for military personnel.  In addition, the age for senior memberships has increased from 62 to 65 – pending change to our By-Laws requiring approval by club members.
