    Times & prices have changed for components & guns... but so far not the $'s for targets...
    Our local club in Casper, Wy remains the same for years now...

    Annual Membership = $20 / Family $30...
    Skeet/ Trap 25 targets = $4 member / $5 non-member...
    5-stand 50 targets = $8 / non-member $10...
    Sporting Clays = comparable pricing for 100 targets
    Our club also offers an 11-round punch card for $40 and a monthly drawing for a free one.
    Bonus: ice cream sandwiches and pop/ water in the fridge - $.50

    Good for your club, but,

    Every club, even within a state may charge different prices.

    In many cases, price increases are beyond there control (as if they don't increase prices the club will close at some point).

    How many rounds are actually shot through the year; 1/2 a trailer or three trailers?

    Paid or volunteer club, taxes (school and property), insurance (does the club also have directors insurance?), mowing the lawns (one field or twenty fields), number of members (25 or 250), snow removal, paying for the upkeep of the rifle/pistol ranges, youth shooting programs, and on and on.....

    You don't know how good you've got it, Pre-64. Enjoy it.

    We pay $6.00 a round, and there are clubs that charge more. One of the cheapest large clubs I know of in the Chicago area is St. Charles at $3.50 for full members, but you have to contribute hours each year. Nice place to shoot registered. And they shoot a lot. I think their summer league has over 200 shooters in it. If it wasn't an hour and a half a way in bucolic Elburn, I'd shoot there more.

    Seems like I've heard of some Florida clubs that charge $8.00 a round.

    $5 non-member? That's more than our registered targets ($19.50). Anyone is $3.50 for non-registered at East Rockwood, Carleton MI.

    At three local member-owned small clubs, annual membership is $25 which allows members to buy 10 rnd. punch cards at $35 to $45 (youth/women $35). The cost was increased in 2012 due to the significant increase in White Flyer pricing. All work is done by member volunteers.

    County operated public ranges in S. Florida (Miami & Ft.Lauderdale) are at least $8.50/25. No private clubs within almost 100 miles.

    Flagler gun club $5 member,$7 nonmember members only club $150 initiation fee $175 annual dues
    $303 individual membership $365 family add $50 a year if you don't volunteer 8 hours a year. 4 trap fields 3 skeet 2 pistol rim fire 2 rifle average shooters for trap on tues and sat 10 .cant get any trap shooters to shoot here I wonder why. Non profit members only club all volunteer.gate code access no public allowed. Why can't my club get anymore shooters! Guys show up for trap at 8am 80% done shooting by 9am targets don't look good until 10am no score shooters or enough to shoot a full squad. Trap prices increased because all the other clubs raised their prices. Funny thing is 20 years ago I paid $2.50 a round you other clubs have it real good. But I guess that's why you have shooters! Troubled in Bunnell florida, a hard working volunteer :( time to move back up north where you guys live and the rounds are now $3.50 a round Gotta squeeze members to try to get any volunteer work done(we have over 800 members!) don't know where my clubs going to do. Over 800 paid members almost no trapshooters at all. I forget who brings the most money into the club? O that would be the clay target shooters. So much for the retirement state

    We are all volunteer. We have no paid managers etc. we fix all of our own traps. We have a nice airconditioned club house, we have indoor bathrooms, we keep the propane in the tank so you can stay warm between rounds, we maintain a kitchen so you can feed yourself, we buy the 10k mowers and keep gas in them to keep your shooting experience nice and when you add ALL that up and figure what White Flyer has RAISED there price to its just under 3.00 a round COST. Only people get paid is we pay our trap help (kids) on league night We could lower the cost and get those prices way down...All we would have to do is set up a thrower in a field...you could stand outside in the weather, dig a hole for a chitter and load and score for one squad ahead of you. Heck that would be cheaper.

    I am a member of two clubs, one charges $4 per round and the other $3 per round.

    Annual dues and assessments are $150 and $175 per year after the first year.
    Both clubs try hard to keep the cost of rounds as low as possible for members.

    Typical ATA fees here in Connecticut are $25/100 and you add the ATA and CTA fees to that
    and it usually comes to around $31 for 100 singles or $56 for Singles and Handicaps (200 birds).
