I thinks its safe to say most people do not want to drop $600 bucks on a Par meter or Frag saw to only use it every blue moon. The clubs equipment over the years has slowly stopped working or has been stolen by past members. (For example the frag saw is with a old president in California)
Long story short, With the success of this years swap we wanted to start to re invest in club equipment and re think how we loan them out to members to use!
The first two pieces we wanted to start looking into are a Full Spectrum Par meter and wand, and a Frag saw. What do you think? Any other item we should move ahead of these?
Now how to loan them out, First we want to make sure active members get access to the perks of the equipment. So to borrow them you will need to have attended at least 4 CincyReef meetings or events in the last calendar year as a paid member. You will need to provide a Government issued ID and a security deposit which will be returned as soon as the item is returned to a Board member in working order. (Security deposits TBD based on the item) Its important to protect these items as the club and membership is investing so much money into them.
If you have any ideas on this please share them here as well!
