Archery Club dues

dcso3009dcso3009 Member Posts: 2,350 ✭✭✭✭✭
What do you pay for your archery club dues? And what does that get you? Indoor? Outdoor? Any other affiliations? What does your club own (if known). Any other perks?

I ask because our board is discussing raising dues. I (on the board) am very much against raising dues. I know many who would no longer be a member if the dues go any higher.

I'll start it off.
The Rochester Archery Club dues is $75/single, $80/family per year. This is for year round shooting (but we don't plow the 1/2 mile of driveway so winter access is out). Outdoor only. Practice range with marked distance 10-60 yards with Genesis targets, and 2D silhouette animal targets. A 30 target 2D silhouette animal walk through course with elevated shooting platforms. We keep 6 or so old 3D targets out for broadhead shooting.
Our club membership includes membership to Minnesota Bowhunters Inc.

The club owns 40 acres along with 1/2 mile of driveway so no chance of loosing access.

Members choosing to volunteer to work at the club (any work at the club, or club event)earn $5/hour to buy down any club cost (up to half). Our members can enter a drawing to hunt the range property for a month each year. The hours worked can "buy" additional chances into the drawing.

    I can't help you. I belong to no club. I either shoot at home or at a range on DNR land bout 3 miles from me for free.

    I have a 10 yard range set up in my basement and a 20-60 yard range out back. No need to pay to use one.

    I did look im to it a few years ago and the are $100 a year not sure what is included but I am sure it is less then you are offering.

    That is a helluva bargain for only $100 dues. I would join that if we had one here.
