AGC Guest Changes

Snippets taken from the email sent by AGC.

--------------------------------
... removed bit for brevity...
You might be surprised to learn that over 13,000 guest visits have occurred in that time! (2019)

In the past year, we've been collecting guest data electronically. The AGC saw over 3,800 unique guests visit the range and some of those guests returned several more times which lead to over 5,000 total guest visits! This is a phenomenal number when you consider that there were only slightly more than 2,700 badges sold in 2019.

Guess what, of those 3,800 guests only 10 chose to become club members!!
----------------------------------


I understand their desire to increase range memberships, but at what cost? AGC is already the most expensive range in the area and now they are removing a member benefit of bringing guests w/o an additional charge.

I use the range, from July - October only on Saturdays. I'm not sure it's worth the range fee, club membership fee, guest fees and being indexed/muzzle swept at the range about once a month.

The range is about 37 minutes away from where I live but i can go to another place for free if i want to drive about 20 minutes further. I just can't do it easily in July - October because of crops.

What are your plans/thoughts on the ACG rule changes? I'm thinking of giving it a couple weeks and evaluating again.

The guest fee doesn't mean a thing to me. If I took a friend to lunch it would cost more than that. I do not like the continuing increases in badge fees. They simply are not justifiable. I am more inclined to leave due to the safety issues! There will be more on this at a later date.

Haven't been a member of an AGC club for over 20 years.

But, why not require guest registration, and after one or two guests visits in a year, start charging.

That way you can get new people to see and use the range and possibly join. But limit the repeat guests who are abusing the privilege.

Nope.. can't do that.. THIS would make sense. We'll have none of that here.
