Welcome to the Pentagon Ski Club!

Entry to Ft. Myer

When coming to Ft. Myer for club meetings, base security and access has become a bit onerous for many of our members.   If you have an active duty or retired military ID, or a DoD-issued Common Access Card (CAC) (and possibly several other types of government-issued ID), you should be able to enter the base without screening, but other visitors will likely need to complete an access application and be vetted through their security system before gaining entry.  This can take some time, so we suggest that you arrive at the base a bit early.  Fewer people are likely to be ahead of you, and you'll have a better chance of getting through the process and arriving at the meeting when it begins.

To help speed the process, we suggest that you complete the Fort Myer Installation Access Request Form and bring it with you.  As you come through the main (Hatfield) gate, show them your form and they'll direct you to the new (as of April 2018) Visitor Control Center (VCC), located just inside the gate.

The VCC is open 6am-7pm Mon-Fri and 9am-3pm Saturdays (new hours eff June 2018).  You should be able to obtain a long-term Automated Installation Entry (AIE) Pass right on the spot.  If you plan to obtain a pass on your way to a club meeting, be sure to come a bit early as they tend to get slammed by our members all arriving just before their 7pm closing time and may not be able to handle the rush.

   - Without sponsorship (Section D of the form), you will
      probably be able to get an AIE Pass good for 60 days.
   - With sponsorship by the PSC, you may be able to get an AIE Pass good for as long as a year.
     Current club members may send an email to club president Dave Olsen
     (pscracer[at]yahoo.com) to request sponsorship.  After confirming that your
     membership is current, Dave will email
or fax you a copy of the Visitor Pass Application
     with the sponsorship section completed.   He will also have forms available at club meetings.

Note that drivers won't necessarily be allowed to vouch for their passengers.  Although a photo ID like a driver's license might sometimes be accepted, passengers without an AIE Pass or one of the other types of ID mentioned above might need to complete a Visitor Pass Application and pass the vetting process to enter the base.

To renew an expiring pass, return to the VCC with another sponsored form.  As long as your existing pass hasn't expired yet, the renewal process should be pretty painless.
