Increase in dues

     I've been asked several times why the increase in dues - so.........  

The range's sole income comes from membership dues and the events that are put on by the divisions. The shooting events have seen a significant drop in shooters over the last couple of years for what ever reason, cost of ammo etc., etc.

The cost of utilities are always going up. Our trash service alone has gone up well over 50% in the last two years as well as the porta-potties.

I shouldn't even have to mention the huge cost increase of insurance!

And then there is the constant upkeep of the range. When we cant get volunteer's to help with something we have to hire it done. Every year we spend more and more on the dirt work to maintain the road, the berms etc.

I personally feel that the current cost is a bargain for everything the range has to offer. I think if you did some research into the cost of other ranges and what they have to offer you might be surprised.

    Even though I don't get to use the range on a regular basis, it's a great value. How can we volunteer to help out on the range for clean up day's and contribute in other way's?

    Those complaining about the cost are most likely the ones that want to have life handed to them on a silver platter. Get off your butt and help out, donate some time, get new members, or find other ways to contribute! I challenge you to find ANYWHERE that offers long range shooting, trap, skeet, 5 stand, 100 - 300 yard target, silhouettes, three gun, and archery facilities for the same price we pay here. Thanks to all who make it possible!!!
