BRSP Main Gate Access Issue Resolution

Gate Closure Change Recently because of a continuing problem with unauthorized shooters (non-members and non EPM members) on the Rifle and Pistol range after hours the Board of Directors (BOD) examined the problem closely. It became clear that these folks were taking advantage of the fact that the gate was open for league shooting on the shotgun side after the normal hours on R&P were over for the day at 6:00pm (summer) and 4:00pm (winter). Having unauthorized, unsupervised shooters on the range creates a significant safety/liability problem for the club. Not to mention that these folks were taking advantage of EPMs who pay significant dollars for the privilege of shooting during off hours. Accordingly, we elected to try closing the gate at 4:00pm as of November 20 after R&P went to winter hours. We acknowledged that this was going to be somewhat inconvenient for league shooters, particularly teams with general or 48-hour members. That policy was transmitted by email and by notices posted on each teams’ scoreboard. After hearing from many members and examining other approaches to the problem the policy of closing the gate early is hereby rescinded. In the near future we will have a Range Safety Officer (RSO – employee) present during all hours that an EPM can access the range when either the shotgun end or R&P is closed. This change comes with a not insignificant cost. Thank you for your continued support of BRSP and I look forward to seeing you on the range. Dave Kaiser President, BOD
