Ok, it that time of year...let's do a little price per round survey for trap. And just to make sure its an apple to apple comparison, please also state the follwing:
Is it member owned?
How many days open?
How many fields?
Do you through tournament grade targets?
Is ther paid help, if so for what?
Is there a work requirment?
Membership cost?

The reason I put these adders in is that everytime our club raises the target fee the complianers compare it to a small no payroll club.

For members our club charges $3.50 if purchased by volume, $4 if not. $6 for non-members.

Member owned, Open 5 days, has paid help (1 full timer who, cooks-cleans-cashiers-bartends, and then also trap kids), full service bar and grill, Membership fee is $25, 8 fields combo fields, all with Pat Traps (22 pat traps total), no work requirment. Board and Officers are not compensated, trap mechanic, lawn mowing and other maintenance is by volunteers. We throw between 600,000 and 1 million targets per year, although lately it been nearer 600,000. Between trap and skeet we host about 12 registered events, plus leagues, and some non-registered shoots for each game.We try to run the club on a zero profit, zero loss basis.

All member owned club and all have access to the trap fields whenever you want during day light hours.

$2/round for singles at the one club and $2.50/round at the other two clubs. The two clubs that charge $2.50/round throw registered targets. Membership is $70/yr for the club that charges $2/round but the club is in a much more expensive area, the other two clubs charge $40/yr and $20/yr.

Great Falls Trap and Skeet.

35 per year to belong. 350 per round to practice. 450 if not a member. Member run but we do hire the desk duty on Wed. and Sun.

Not the best but what works for us. We are nonprofit and still in the black.

Actually you don't have to be a member of the Markham Trap club to shoot at Markham Park as it's public facility. Single round price will be $9.00 as of Oct 1st. The first round is $9.00 and each succeding round bought at the same time is $8.00. So 4 rounds will cost $33.00. The 10 round ticket is $73 and is good for 90 days.

it looks as if the clubs that charge over 3.50 is trying to make it on practice targets alone Considering the cost of targets there is no way that a cluib should charge $6.00 to $9.00 for a round especially when they have a membership fee. It seems these days everyone is out to screw every one else and they do not care who. $6.00 t0 $9.00 is a terrible way to treat customers especially when you factor in the price of shells I would not frequent these clubs at all. They are money grabbers in the worst way.

Duckeye,

As I said in my previous post, I'm not defending Markham Park but it is a County run facility with paid full time and part time help that do all the work. Long story short, it's the only game in town and they have no competition within 100 miles.

Most clubs around me are 3.00, one is 3.50 if you buy a 35.00 card for 10 rounds the next 2 rounds are free. NO extra charge for Non-members. It cost no more to throw targets for them than members. All are menber owned not privately owned. Memberships are 15.00 and 20.00/yr.

While shooting practice at St. Joe VCC today, I picked up a schedule for Ideal Fish & Game Club. Public shoots practice for $3.50 a rd. You have to be a member to fish or use the rifle range.
