Yep! we were 21% busier in 2017 compared to 2016. That hardly means we are overwhelmed with shooters at the range. The average visits to the range per day is 5.25 shooters which hardly causes a line at the door. This average is up from 4.33 shooters in 2016. Coincidentally, membership is also up 21% from 241 to 292. In 2016 membership was up 88% but range usage was only up 53%.
We all have different agendas when we come to shoot. Some like to visit with others while many just want to burn a box and go. You will see some trends in the statistics that will help you best achieve your time goals. Don’t let Tuesday trick you. The range is closed every Tuesday between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. for cleaning. So pick the best day and time and enjoy. Make sure to check the calendar on the “Shooting Range” page of our website (www.nwmaca.wordpress.com) to see if there are any closures when you want to shoot.
