Why can't they just put up the screens now and be done with it?
The public range that I go to,has had screens in place at each bench for several years.They work pretty good for most rifles,but some rifles that eject brass upward will still send brass into the next shooting station.
I only go to the public range during week days,and I'm usually the first shooter there so flying brass isn't a big problem for me.Plus,I shoot LH,and I'm usually the only one on that section of the range for most of the time that I'm there.
Here's a pic of the screens that the range has on the shooting stations-
