used to dread reporting our target usage each month at our Board
of Directors meeting. We spent a year or more trying to identify
the leading causes of our high rate of shrinkage. We use that term
'shrinkage' to identify the difference between targets that were
paid for by shooters and actual targets used. We were unsuccessful
in identifying the specific cause of our high rate of 'target shrinkage'
but had a gut feel it was for unpaid rounds shot. In 2002 we decided
to try out your Pay for Play system to solve our problem.
PROBLEM SOLVED I now look forward to reporting target
usage at our monthly Board of Directors meeting. Some months I report
that rather than 'shrinkage' we apparently grew some targets. Interesting
to say the least.
Based on our results from using the Pay for Play
card system, we have reduced our 'target shrinkage' from over 15%
to under 2%.
Having used a ticket system for decades we anticipated
a lot of grumbling about the new system from our members. Yes, a
few did and we suspect the reason. However, our members overwhelmingly
embraced the new system. No more lost tickets left in a clothing
pocket and lost in the wash. No more lost tickets period. The card
fits nicely in a wallet or purse and readily available to the shooter.
In addition the support we get from you and others
at Golden West keeps our equipment up and running with little if
any down time.
Thanks for helping us improve the process of enjoying
the sport of clay target shooting.
