AN OPEN LETTER TO OUR SHOOTERS
To Our Trap and 5 Stand Shooters at Bucks County Fish & Game. Due to the increase in petroleum products the price of Clay Targets have increased dramatically along with the fuel charges for delivery of these targets.
The cost has increased by $.02 per target which equates to a $.50 increase in a round of Trap and 5 Stand. Over the last few years, we have been able to absorb the small increases without impacting the club operations.
This increase will cover our operating expenses, keep the youth programs funded, and continue upgrading our facilities to provided a better level of service to our members and guests.
We hope you understand our position and continue to support Bucks County Fish & Game going forward.
Thank you and enjoy the Facilities
