New Membership System Roll-Out

Dear Members, Beginning 21 July, Birchwood Recreation and Shooting Park is transitioning to a new membership management program called Club Automation. This software will improve our ability to communicate with you, give you greater visibility of our activities and ease in signing up for them, speed up your check-in process, and facilitate paying fees.   To ease in the transition to this new software we are rolling it out in phases. Phase 1 begins on July 21st and will be addressing your check-in process and membership renewal. You will be given a new member card – similar to a member loyalty card at a grocery store – that you will place in front of a scanner. You will then be given your wristband and be finished with check-in. During Phase 1 we will also begin handling all membership renewals through the front desk, either on the phone or in person. For renewals you will only need to provide payment information so it will be quick and easy.   Phase 2 which we hope to have completed by mid-August will provide you access to your new member portal. Through the portal you will be able to update your information, sign up for activities, reserve RV spots and pay any outstanding fees. You will also be given the ability to have a monthly billable house account if you choose. During Phase 2 we will begin to integrate SMS text messaging if you choose to opt in for this service. While we do not plan on using this frequently, range-wide it will be utilized to announce unexpected cancellations or closures and when we require ice cleats. On a smaller scale we will utilize it to provide information to specific user groups and event participants.   Closely following Phase 2, Phase 3 will bring our mobile app online. This app will give you some of the functionality of your member portal and an easy to use club calendar, in addition to integrating your membership barcode so that you can use your smart phone for check-in at the front desk. The app will also enable non-members to have visibility on what is going on and we hope spark interest in future membership.   Finally, Phase 4 will replace our RFID card readers at the gate with barcode readers. You will be able to use either your member card or your smart phone to open the gate if you have our app installed.   As we begin Phase 1 next Tuesday, when you come to the club to check in please allow a little extra time as we will be asking you to verify your information along with taking your picture to attach to your membership profile.  By having your picture on file we will no longer need to check your ID. We will initially have extra staff on hand to keep things moving, but please be patient with us as we begin to implement this new system.   We look forward to continuing to serve you in the future and are convinced this transition will make your experience at Birchwood Recreation and Shooting Park more informed, efficient and enjoyable.   Sincerely,   Melissa Himes Executive Director

Membership Dues Increase

Dear BRSP Member, For the past three years your board has been working to put the club on a solid financial foundation.  There have been a number of changes as part of this long term plan.  A long cold stretch this winter followed by the COVID 19 operational restrictions has forced the board to accelerate the final steps of the new financial plan. After a great deal of deliberation the board unanimously voted to raise annual dues to $375.  This dues increase was announced at the annual meeting but the board wanted to provide the membership with some insight to the reasoning behind the changes. In addition to the change in dues we will be making the following changes to fees and operations. This club will become an annual membership only club.  2-Day membership has been eliminated.  The $3/day R&P range fee will be eliminated. Membership will be capped at 3400.  These changes have been put in place to address operational issues at the park such as: Address years of deferred maintenance. Initiate a capital improvement program. Build an emergency fund for situations similar to the COVID-19 shutdown. Become a true members club. Improve the member’s experience by limiting access to the club’s facilities to members and their guests. Eliminate overcrowding on the Rifle and Pistol ranges.  Recognizing members are the backbone of the club by moving to a business model that recognizes this.  The board will be hosting two question and answer sessions so that members have a better understanding of the changes.  These sessions will be Saturday June 6th and June 13th from 4:00 – 5:30pm at the main club house.  We strongly urge any member with questions to attend one of these sessions.  In addition to these two sessions questions can be emailed to board@brspclub.com. The board has invested significant time in preparing information to better communicate the operational and financial decisions.  Please take time to review these documents before you ask questions.  These documents are a summary of the decisions made and why.  The membership price change will be effective July 21st, 2020.  The board has put in place several policies to address this change. Members whose expiration dates occur on or after July 21st, 2020 will not be allowed to renew early at the current fee. Anyone left with a value on a punch card or who purchased an annual unlimited pass will be credited or refunded a prorated amount.  A monthly payment option will be available.   During the first year of the new fee structure, we will be offering a discount to current members who pay in full when renewing. In addition to the price change there will be follow on announcements to address operational changes as we move into the new business model.  These changes when fully implemented will improve everyone’s experience at the park and allow us to operate more efficiently.  Change is not easy but it is necessary and your board has invested significant time in this plan to secure the future of the park, improve the member experience and make the park operations more efficient.  Your board would like to thank you for your continued support and patience as we move forward.  Financial Analysis: https://mcusercontent.com/7d7ad41f836e010aa30668a92/files/4bd238c5-9be1-4528-9652-acecbd753e3a/2020_BRSP_Annual_Member_Dues_Increase_Final.pdf FAQ: https://mcusercontent.com/7d7ad41f836e010aa30668a92/files/c69c6a89-1f5b-4a7f-ae03-266c8556bd77/BRSP_Membership_and_Fee_Change_FAQ_5.25.2020.01.pdf Fee Schedule: https://mcusercontent.com/7d7ad41f836e010aa30668a92/files/1eafbf0e-d0a0-427e-a05e-992983724e3b/Fee_schedule.03.pdf Your Board members: Scott Henderson – President Bill Batson – Vice President John Barnes – Treasurer Justin Larkin – Secretary Clover McNeil Dana Stewart David Arieno Gerald Atol Sarah Stallone
