    Vienna Fish & Game Club located in NE Ohio charges $3 per round of trap; $0.00 for free advice & opinions. Open every Wednesday & Sunday. How much does your club charge for a round of practice trap?

    enjoy it while you can. Our club will go to $4 in 2009. We were losing .50 per round at $3.00. The club is putting in a system that requires a "key" for prepaid rounds to cut down on the apparent theft that is going on

    $7.25 at Markham Park in S. Florida. Now before all the "holy S**T" starts, Markham is a county run public facility not a private members run club. Besides it's the only game in town.

    At CCC in Miami they charge $8.00 per round. If you're lucky enough to be able to go out Weds through Fri from 1pm to 5pm, you pay $5.00 per round. Too bad for those of us that work for a living.

    A ridiculous $ 7.75 per round for non-members and $6 for members. Too high, one would want to see lower fees to atract new shooters and improve business.

    I pay $3.75 per round (Trap and Skeet). I've paid the member rate so long I don't know what the non-member rate is. We did have a membership increase this year to $235.00 per year and that caused me to pause a little bit. I just signed up for Winter league too: $40.00 for the first event and you have to buy a 12 round shoot card for $54.00 (Winter league). The club is very nice: 4 trap ranges separate from the Skeet ranges, 5 Skeet ranges, one with a trap range in the middle, Sporting Clays course, 5 Stand range, Pistol range(up to 50 yds), and a Rifle range (up to 300yds.) Some may say this is a bit pricey and I would agree with you. However, aside from a little fishing and ATA registered in the Summer, this is my only recreation and I have to do something to keep out of the looney bin.

    At Fairfax Rod and Gun Club in VA we are charging $3.00 for members and $4.00 for guests, and our treasurer says we are loosing money mostly due to "shrinkage". We will probably go from an honor system to a card key system in the hopes of keeping our fees the same. We think we can go from 25% "shrinkage" to 10% "shrinkage" with the card key system. Does anyone have any experience with that, and do you have any recommendations. Billy Gross

    Magna went from 4 to 5 per round for members due to increase in cost of targets, hope to see it go down now that targets and gas are down. Tooele has stayed at 3.5 but plans to go to 4 with the new year. Great Salt lake is highest in the state at 6 and Spanish Fork is 4 for members.

    It's $4.00 per round here in Perkinsville, Vermont. Costs $50 to join the club. Indoor range available. Trap at the $4.00 rate is open to the general public. Runs one evening a week. No trap during December-March.

    I am the president of our local club and I contacted our manager on the actual cost of a round. The raw cost is $1.81 per round and we charge $3. Our profit is $1.19 per round. This does not take in the cost of electricity or the cost of the PAT trap.
