Revised RV Rates

All, After publishing the 2019 rates last week, we received feedback from a few user groups who felt the increase was burdensome without substantial notice. Therefore, we decided to reduce these fees for the 2019 season only. Expect to see a substantial increase for the 2020 season, and plan accordingly. If you have any questions, please contact Yvonne in the administrative office M – F during normal business hours: (907) 688-2809. Thank you.

Ice Cleats are Mandatory

Due to deteriorating weather conditions, every person on all ranges MUST WEAR ICE CLEATS AT ALL TIMES until further notice. Please take extra care in the parking lot directly in front of the ranges. When range conditions improve, we will lift this mandatory requirement. However, it is strongly recommended that all shooters bring ice cleats with them to the range throughout the winter as conditions can change quickly. Please exercise extreme caution while driving and walking on the property.  Ice cleats are available for purchase at the Rifle/Pistol Office, and Shotgun Lodge during office hours. During EPM hours, members and guests must also be wearing cleats while on the property.  We realize this requirement may be inconvenient to some of our shooters, but safety is our first priority. Thank you for your understanding.   BRSP Staff
