A 100 yard range is also available to the membership at a range fee of 4.00. Users are responsible for arranging a suitably qualified range officer to supervise the shooters who must use standard NRA or NSRA approved targets.

The maximum you will pay in range fees for a week is 8.  This could be shooting fullbore at 200 yards, 500 yards on a Saturday or Sunday and then any number of times at the 100 yard range through the week.  If you only shoot at the 100 yards range on a Saturday or Sunday paying 4 you will still need to pay 4 again if you shoot again through the week at 100 yards but will not have to pay again for the rest of the week.
