Vic Ranges - Another Steep Price Increase 6-Jan-2004 At 3:04:34 PM dodgy
Hmmm, well at that rate my membership won't get renewed...
I think a lot of it has to do with the demise of the pistol range, which was the profitable part of the business and carried the climbing to a large degree. I think it also reduced the insurance costs (let's face it climbing is probably safe compared to shooting).
I also spoke to one of the staff pre-xmas who told me they had to (substantially) upgrade the bouldering mats (about time) but that doesn't seem to have been started, and that they would be "doing lots of work" while closed. Can't see it.
I find it strange that the approach seems to be to nail the regulars at a higher price (and drive them away?), rather than do more promotion and get more punters in. I suspect they will (rapidly) acheive the same result as the Mill, a vicious circle of gradual demise
