    The price of the targets themselves, maintainence and replacement of equipment and club houses, taxes, utilities, salaries if paid employess are used. Some clubs may still be making payments for building or buy the club itself. There are many things to consider in pricing a round.

    OleTymer ... there is one other major thing that is usually taken into account when you consider those things you mentioned. What and how much revenue was and is generated from yearly membership dues to offset those fixed and semi-fixed expenditures.

    There are some clubs in my area that I am still shocked and surprised that they are still charging $2 a round for members to shoot. There is one club that charges $2, one that charges $2.50 and one that charges $3 for guests and I do say and have shot at all 3 as a guest and am shocked that with the equipment they have and the targets they throw that the can do it so cheaply but ... 2 of the clubs have a high membership dues and the other has a heck of allot of members.

    $8.30 per 135, White Flyer Bio, when purchased in pallet quantities for club use. (63 cases per pallet.)

    Works out to 6.15 cents per target; $1.537 per round of 25.

    This is in the DFW area.

    27 pallets to a truckoad. Watch out for a fuel surcharge which may be coming. A friend in the business was talking 40 cents a mile.

    White flyer operates their own trucks, Midwest uses common carriers who need a backhaul from the delivery area.

    With fuel going up daily, it is definitely going to affect shooting.
