Ice Cleats Must Be Worn on the Rifle and Pistol Ranges 

Due to recent warm temperatures and slick ice conditions, every person on the Rifle/Pistol ranges MUST WEAR ICE CLEATS AT ALL TIMES beginning Sunday January 14 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 during office hours. Quantities may be limited, so please plan ahead. 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.

An Open Letter to all BRSP Members

The BRSP Board of Directors (BOD) has carefully considered the current membership system and is implementing some changes. Currently, General Members are charged $119 per year ($99 per year Active Military and Seniors). “Exclusive Park Member”,  (EPM),  membership is $199 per year ($149 for Active Military and Seniors). There is also a Student Membership, for $10.00 per year, for those young shooters participating in leagues and other youth programs who are not covered under a family membership. General members are charged a $5.00 range fee per visit for each individual shooting on the Rifle and Pistol ranges, and increased fees for shooting clay targets, that amount to $1.00 extra per round of 25 targets. EPM members do not pay the range fee, and shoot clay targets at the reduced rate. Both General and EPM memberships are family memberships, which cover your spouse and children living at home under the age of 18 or age 23 with a valid student ID. EPM Members have access to the facility from 7:00am to 10:00pm, seven days a week, 364 day a year, (excepting the annual Youth Day in June). The General class of members may only shoot during the hours the park is open, i.e. those times when the gate is open, and the park is staffed. Recent events with respect to park access and other issues, including liability, have resulted in the Board of Directors (BOD) re-examining the classes of membership. At present only 4.4% of the membership is composed of members in the General Membership classification. As a result of our review the BOD has elected to take the following action: 1.Effective 1/1/18 there will no longer be “Genera”l and “EPM” member, just “Members”. “Members” will have all rights, privileges, and access currently enjoyed by “EPM” Members. The annual cost of membership will be $199 ($149 for seniors and active duty military). Student membership will remain the same at $10.00. Current General Members will be allowed to continue in their current status until their membership expires at which time they will have to pay the increased membership price. Current General Members, who wish to do so before their membership expires, may immediately upgrade their membership on a pro rata basis. Anyone not a current member may utilize the park by paying for a $20.00 48-hour membership and paying the range fees for each shooter and increased clay target fees. The BOD apologizes for any inconvenience that this change in membership structure causes, but we are convinced it is in the best interest of both the park, and the membership. Anyone who uses the park even just a few times a year will make up the difference in price between the current General and EPM membership fairly quickly with the savings on range fees and clay target costs after which there will be ongoing savings. Dave Kaiser President, BOD

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
