NOTE: The Club and training facility is rustic and does not have running water. Our restrooms are porta-potties with hand sanitizing dispensers. The classroom is climate controlled however due to the extreme temperature variations during the year we recommend dressing for the season and keeping in mind the range and classroom are often chilly in the morning and evening hours during the non-sweltering months.

There are no vending or food/drink services on club property or nearby.  Our daylong courses require that students bring all food, drinks, and snacks they will desire for the length of the course.  Most classes utilize a working lunch and students will not have time to leave the property for lunch.



To register for a class, READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS FIRST. Note that you are allowed to register ONE person at a time for a class. To register multiple people, you must go through this process for each person individually:

  1. First, you must put the number "1" (without quotes) into whichever red box matches your status... There are two boxes to choose from, depending on if you are a current BRPC Member, Active Duty Military, or LEO (or none of these). If you are Member, Active Duty, or LEO then change the "0" to a "1" in that box. Otherwise, change the "0" to a "1" in the other box.
  2. Next, select a date to register for from the calendar that shows a GREEN background. If you do not immediately see any dates with a green background, that means there are no dates available for that month. Click the right-arrow at the top of the calendar to move to the next month, and keep doing this until you find a green date that is available for registration.
  3. After clicking the date you want to register for, the "Booking Cost" will then be displayed below the calendar. At that point, simply enter your Member Card Number (if applicable) and click the red BOOK NOW button to complete the process and checkout.
