The Founders Club is just that; a select, limited, inspired team of front leaders that understand that being a member of the Premier Shooting Center facility has its privileges - but having the foresight to step up and be one of the elite Founders Club within that discerning group garners its own special recognition and rewards that only we can offer
When you are a leader and innovator; someone who aligns with the vision we are establishing at the facility, you deserve to be recognized.
You are passionate about the shooting sport and environment anyway, so why not include yourself in this limited club within a club.
We feel that independent thinking and commitment should see its own rewards so we have put together a rewards program that sets its self apart from any other club in Ontario.
We know Premier Shooting Center will be special in all that we offer but like you, we want to go beyond the expected and present the Founders Club, a way for you to enhance your experience at the facility.
Why shouldn’t you have preferential treatment and offers; why shouldn’t you be invited to evenings with our special guests; and we certainly wouldn’t expect you to wait for a shooting lane or ever be disappointed that you couldn’t get into a competition or course.
Being a ‘Founder’ comes with preference and privilege
We are limiting this Founders Club Level privilege to 350 people only !.
Membership in the Founders Club provides access to premium benefits and exclusive opportunities that rewards inclusion:
(Ultimately that will give you one of the cheapest memberships in Ontario !)
Value Perception is not about dollars and cents; it’s about what matters to you! That said as part of your value perception we want you to know and feel that the Founders Club is above reproach and we maintain our level of open transparency in all that we do and so we offer some answers below to the common thought questions in our FAQ.
However, even after reading the obvious questions, we strongly encourage you to call or email with any specific questions you might have so that we can offer as much information to you, for you to decide on your own value perception of this offer.
We will add to the FAQ as inquiries accumulate
Sadly, its true that developing a range, especially such as this facility is hard: financially, personally, there’s the obvious red tape; and external issues that have you fighting forward every week. So where others have failed I would suggest that I’m sure there are mixed reasons why they haven’t fully realized their efforts. I would suggest though that the common denominator could be preparation and a fully developed business plan!
We have spent years in developing a solid relationship with the Kawartha Lakes region township decision makers. We have chosen the land area specifically because it affords the right criteria to support the business plan – not the other way around. We have the ‘go ahead’ with local authorities before looking to build which means the range is fully supported by the municipality which drastically reduces any roadblocks that could stall/stop the build of the range. The decision to build this range is based on solid market analysis and data; we know the local demographics, travel corridors, proximity to other range options and their shooting discipline offerings; we’ve polled the other ranges within 1.5hrs drive on the number of people they hold on their waiting list; and have fully flushed out the financials with CPA’s, CFO’s and industry associates.
In short then, this is a business that we have invested personally and committed that financial confidence, there is no way we are walking away when we are at the door step of putting the shovel in the ground.
This is an investment, so its fair to say that there is risk and reward. If an Apple share was purchased there isn’t a banker would ever tell you that it will guarantee a profit point. Of course we all know that so it comes down to a level of risk mitigation….in that case you are leveraging their history and brand name
For us as a start up we have neither right now all we have is the business plan a definite market just waiting for us to open and all the dominoes stood in place waiting to be tipped over and start the momentum
So it comes down to risk mitigation:
As part of any risk mitigation in any decent business plan we have considered many roadblocks and scenarios where the end result was negative for the company and developed a threat mitigation plan for those scenarios against loss of funds.
Some aspects that we have covered and have defensive actions in place against are:
We have expanded on this in the Offering Memorandum that we have developed with T Rynard Law (Barrie). This paper is an in-depth look at risk in many avenues and expands on the specific concern and risk mitigating measures.
We cannot express deeply enough that you should read the full prospectus before purchase so that you are fully informed and can call or email to ask any other questions that apply to you if they are not answered within the prospectus
The short version though, that seems to be the key question is, “what is the maximum exposure”
We estimate the maximum threat potential to your buy-in Founders Club membership is from 0% up to 12% loss* ($480) as your share actually provides part ownership of the land
*Based on the max membership of 350 members
We are currently working with T Rynard Law (Barrie) lawyer to ensure that
So that when you see your Certificate come through in your mail you know the commitment to ensure your membership and fund security are treated with full adherence to the intent of delivering a quality and preferred service level and/or that any risk level is kept to the maximum levels stated.
In short your guarantees are being supported through established legal criteria ….not just our word.
The biggest roadblocks to all range startups are the big three: Environmental, Acoustic, Local Municipality by-laws.
We have spent almost 3 years working these issues and have a path forward. The location allows for a shooting range in terms of EIS; the distance to the nearest dwelling is approx. 4.5km which over comes the current and future acoustic concerns and the by-laws allow for a range and in fact the local municipal authorities are very much looking forward to the facility as they see the positive effects on the local economy.
So as far as any range is concerned in Ontario I would say that we have a greater chance of success than any other facility of this size
Being a fact and data driven project its’ difficult to quantify but as a guide it is not unreasonable to consider >85% at this time and climbing with each step forward.
Once we have secured the land and secured the zoning /build permissions the next huge step is the build out. This is where the key investor steps up.We have secured the majority of the range build investment through an equity buy-in from a military and police uniform and tactical gear manufacturer to countries over the world. There is a very high likelihood that you have his gear in your range bag right now; probably purchased from some of the key well known commercial outlets across Canada. He imports more than 100 shipping containers a year, just to Canada and with his largest clients in Germany taking receipt of over 300 shipping containers he has a very large footprint in the market space.The gentleman has a deep seated passion for shooting and seriously wants to see this endeavor succeed. However, he is all about business and lives for that ROI and believes in this development. In other words he is a very successful business man because he doesn’t let his passion interfere with solid business….and he sees this development as solid business Once we have the zoning secured and he then steps up, look for a huge marketing campaign where I look forward to introducing his company and his name personally.
Here is a general timeline
The goal is to open house and see Founders Club members having the opening shoot in 18 – 20 months
This share actually gives you a share of the land and like any ‘land transaction’ you will be able to transfer and sell you share to your friends and family or to others looking to mature their investment whether they shoot or not
This model has been seen to have been very lucrative to another successful shooting club relatively close by in Ontario where members are selling their shares to the club for 10’s of thousands now!
You share additionally secures the holder generous benefit programs through the Premier Shooting Center and to add further value to the Founders’ Club share option, we are extending the Founders benefits to whomever the share is transferred to; this adds value in its self, due to the inherent cost savings programs
Please check out the link to the 3D rendering that was made to give a better visualization and flow of the shooting range to aid in discussions during our investment sourcing period.
It is a rendering and so the layout is more of an estimated layout impression and the final design will have heavy input from the office of the CFO to ensure we are leading the front when it comes to safety and security. It does give a decent impression of how the site will look
