TargetTag System

Effective August 20th, 2016, the Vancouver Gun Club will be using the TargetTag System at all venues at the club. We understand that this new system may pose a lot of confusion among club members/patrons so we hope that this page will answer all of the questions you may have.

 

What is the TargetTag System?
The TargetTag System is a payment system whereby the clay throwing machines require the use of an RFID card in order to work. Your membership card will be replaced by a new RFID card (similar to the Translink Compass Card) where $$$ amount can be loaded unto the card and used at the installed readers around the club. As you tap (or tag) your card unto the reader, a preset $$$ amount will be deducted from your card and the reader will allow the machine to throw a certain number of targets. Without loading the reader using your RFID membership card, the machine will not throw targets.

 

How do I get this new RFID card?
All you have to do is go to the cashier window and turn in your old card. If you have an active membership, we will print a new RFID membership card for you.

 

How do I use this new system?
If you would like to know the $$$ amount in your card, all you have to do is hold it against any of the readers around the club and the display will tell you how much $$$ amount you have in there. To load the targets unto the machine, do the following:

  • For Trap, Skeet and Bunker:
    Hold your card in front of the reader until the $$$ amount is displayed and press the yellow button.
  • For Sporting Clays:
    Leave your card inserted in the reader when you shoot. Everytime a bird is called, the reader will automatically deduct a $$$ amount from your card.
  • For 5-Stand:
    Give your card to the on-duty Range Officer who is operating the controller.

What is the $$$ amount that is deducted at each venue?

Venue Members Daypass Juniors Targets
Trap $8.00 $10.00 $5.00 25+2
Skeet $8.00 $10.00 $5.00 25+2
Int'l Trap (Bunker) $8.00 $10.00 $5.00 25+2
5-Stand $8.00 $10.00 $5.00 25
Sporting Clays $0.32/Target $0.40/Target $0.20/Target  

 

What happens to the punch card that I have purchased?
Your punch card will be converted to a $$$ value and loaded into your RFID membership card. The following conversion rate will be used:

Type of Card Unused Card Partially Used
Orange $71.50 $6.50/Unused Punch
Green $70.00 $7.00/Unused Punch
Blue $82.50 $7.50/Unused Punch
Junior $35.00 $3.50/Unused Punch
Volunteer $37.50 $7.50/Unused Punch

 

What about the Daypass shooters?
Daypass shooters will also receive a card but it will not be pre-loaded with a $$$ amount. Instead, everytime their card is used at a station, it will keep track of the amount being used (like a bar tab). At the end of the day, the card is returned to the cashier and the daypass shooter pays the used $$$ amount plus the daypass fee. Prior to being issued a daypass card, the daypass shooter pays a $200 deposit and the club will keep a credit card in the office. The $200 deposit will be cancelled and the credit card returned once the cashier receive the daypass back along with payment.

 

Some things to keep in mind:

  • Treat your RFID membership card like your punch card or cash. If you lose it, we will not be able to replace the $$$ amount contained in it.
  • Daypass shooters are not allowed to use a member's card. If a member is caught letting a daypass shooter use their card in order to get the discounted target pricing, the daypass shooter will be banned from the club and the member will be suspended/banned.
  • Using your RFID membership card with an expired membership will also result in a suspension/ban.
  • For sporting clays shooters: if a machine is empty or malfunctioning, stop shooting and call a range officer. If you keep calling for targets, the reader will keep deducting $$$ amount from your card.
  • Be gentle with your card. Do not bend your card.

 

More information will be added in the future. For the time being, if you have any questions about the Target Tag system, please approach the Club Directors who are on site.
