Cost per round for skeet & trap

Someone posted a question to the trap talk board wanting to know the price of a round at trap clubs.

I added up the numbers from those who responded.

I added a few clubs on my own to the figures below.

I did not post the $6.00 or higher prices that I saw, as they are private clubs or heavy into paid help. The price for shooting a round at a Canadian club was not included.

Price per round, skeet & trap.

One - $5.50

One - $4.50

Three - $4.00

Seven - $3.50

One - $3.25

Nine - $3.00

Four - $2.50

All are member rates.

Just consider this a snapshot of prices charged in various regions of the U.S., as you may find pockets where $2.50 is still the norm, and in other areas $4 might be the norm.

What strikes me is a few years back I saw the same information posted and for the most part the price was $2.50 per round, until you started adding Florida prices, where if any club still charges below $3 a round, I'm not aware of it.

These prices will be reflected in 2007 NSSA / ATA shoot fees.

I know one club that raised practice rates in 2006, but did not pass it on to registered events held, instead maintaining the old price level. The club will raise the price for registered events in 2007 to reflect current target prices.

As for the clubs that also have 5-Stand, I see that many are charging anywhere from $1 to $2 more per round over the price of skeet/trap when I was looking at various web sites. More machines and a lot of show targets does not make that unreasonable.
