    Depends on the activity. Most of our scheduled events involving prizes have a $10 entry fee to offset some of the cost.

    $50 per year per person I assume. For just me, your rates sound quite reasonable.
    Do you offer a rate for families? Say like $100 or $125 per year, per family. With a wife & 2 or more kids old enough to bring along, it could get pricey in a hurry, especially if you count multiple initiation fees. If not, you might want to consider it.

    I just wanted to go against the grain, cause that's me. I think it's reasonable.

    Definitely sounds reasonable. MY local gun shop / pawn shop / indoor range charges 200/yr every year to just use the nice side of the range with the programable distance panel you just punch how many feet you want the target to goto ...... and it's a little better ventillated.

    So basically you pay 200 to not choke on lead and gunpowder < the 10$ entry side has box fans in it :/ > and have the targets go out by themselves < as opposed to the ol flip the switch and targets move but half the time the gears on that dont work and you gotta sling the line out by hand for the motor to catch. >

    So yes a RESOUNDING yes your deal sounds much better
