They are a white plastic card that has a magnetic loop built into the card. The card does not contain any member information but when scanned at the gate, will be recognized by the gate computer as either valid (dues have been paid) or invalid (card has been deactivated for non payment of dues or other reasons).
With this new system, the Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club (club) NO LONGER issues annual membership cards. This is a permanent membership card to be used throughout the members affiliation with the club. Upon payment for the current years dues, the gate computer is programmed to recognize the individual card by the number embedded into the plastic card.
Please note that we do not have the resources to send individual acknowledgements of dues being paid. Those paying by credit card on the website will get an immediate email receipt of their credit card payment, and those paying by check will have their cancelled checks as proof of payment. Membership (EGAC) cards will usually be reauthorized to work on our gates within 5 to 7 days of payment.
We have made several changes to the card readers installed at the range and here is an explanation of the correct use for each of these card readers.
At the Entrance (outer gate) the EGAC card should be held flat against the rectangular black device at the top of the post (shown below). Some beeps will be heard and the gate will begin to open within a few seconds. The old original keypad (marked Linear) is for range official use only and is not to be used by the members.
The Inner gate, which provides access to the members only area, has two gate reader locations (shown below), both of which have a newer type Keypad reader (marked Lift Master). The members EGAC card should be held flat against this newer keypad. Some beeps will be heard and the gate will begin to open within a few seconds. The old original keypad (marked Linear) is for range official use only and is not to be used by the members.
Note: All gates are now configured to open automatically for Exiting the range by driving up to and stopping your vehicle over the sensory loop, which is embedded in the asphalt paving on the inside of either gate.
