NRA membership is not required to compete in NRA sanctioned matches.  However, I highly recommend ALL shooters to become members.  Given the current situation in Washington, we will all depend on the power of the NRA to fight the pending legislation affecting our favorite sport, and our constitutional rights under the Second Amendment.  Additionally, we use the NRA classification system for scoring and awards.  Please remember to bring your NRA number when you register for our matches, and please, please, join if you are not a member.
