FOP Range Inc. Guest Policy
Effective January 1, 2019, changes relating to guests and our guest policy will take effect to ensure we have the resources to improve operations. All ranges have guest policies; some of which are very restrictive, such as you may only bring one guest one time. After that they must join the range as a member to use it again. We are not going to be that restrictive but must modify our open door policy to ensure growth for the future. We are 100% dead set against raising our membership rates to accomplish this. We need more members helping support this facility.
Upon joining, each member is issued a guest pass good for 5 free guests. He may use it to get 5 nonmembers on the facility to shoot with him on the member's ranges. After the his guest passes are used up, he may still bring guests but they are restricted to the Main range and his guest pays the Day Shoot range fee. To use any other part of the facility, the guest must join. He will get a discounted rate on his first year's dues for being brought to the range by a member and the member who brought the individual who joined gets another 5 free guest passes. An additional free guest card is mailed out to each member with their renewal notice.
A Multi-Pass is a guest pass that members may purchase for $50 that allows them to bring any one person every time they come to the range and take them to the member's ranges. The member may bring anyone as their guest with the Multi-Pass. They may use the pass to bring someone different each time the come. Members may bring additional guests but their 5 person annual guest pass will be applied to the additional guests. After its 5 guest limit is used up, the member may still bring additional guests but they will be restricted to the Day Range and have to pay the $20 per person daily range use fee. A Multi-Pass will pay for itself quickly.
Membership Renewal Policy
Effective December 1, 2018, membership is annual with renewal required on the 1st of the month that you joined (instead of on the anniversary of the date you joined). Members are sent a renewal notice via mail before the first of each month. Per the membership agreement, there is a $50 late fee provided for if the member renews more than 30 days late.
In an effort to stimulate a timely dues payment, the range offers a discount for renewals received before the 6th of each month of $20. For example: a member with a single membership with a dues rate of $150 a year would only have to pay $130 to renew if he does so before the 6th. After the 5th, the rate would be the normal dues payment. After 30 days late, the late fee is $25. After 60 days late, the late fee is the $50 provided for in the membership agreement. This policy encourages prompt payment of dues and reduces the immediate effect of the full late fee for an extra 30 days. Come to the range 6 months or a few years after your membership expired to shoot... the late fee and your dues payment would have to be made before access to the member's ranges would be granted.
To get the discounted renewal rate, payment must be received by the range no later than the 5th. Calling in your dues payment is the easiest way to make this happen. We will process your payment and update your file making you good to shoot here another year. Your new membership card will be waiting for you in your file the next time you come to the range. Checks sent via mail for payment may not make it here in time and if received after the 5th, would have a balance due before your card for the next year will be issued.
