I think this is a good use of club funds, but we would need a plan for this, as Uncle Ben states.

Years ago, I was in an outdoors club in Chicago: camping, backpacking, etc. We all bucked up and bought an expensive backpacking stove. The guy who kept it at his house eventually decided he no longer wanted to be a part of the club, but he kept the stove. He never returned calls, and the rest of us were S.O.L.

Good idea Bill, so can we get answers here?

The trailer is just a trailer with stuff in it. I dunno if there is even someone from delegated on the CM committee to keep track of what is in it.

IMHO. We would either start a new position - Quartermaster or give it to someone like the vice commander to as part of duties. It wouldn't be that hard to keep track or 3-5 nice sst's for the club. You would have to check it out and check it in.

I like Wes' idea

A new position or add the reposibility to an existing position. Matt brings up a good point in the "risk" so I would suggest a security deposit (cash or valid credit card) could be required along with a signed form (in case the CC needs to be charged for the tool) to check out a tool. Also maybe initiate a rule that you have to be a member for a certain amount of time before you have access to the tools?

Add in some time limits on how long a tool can be checked out and that should protect the club pretty well. Logistics on where the tools are kept and how members gain access to them should be easy to work out. Whomever is the "Tool Keeper" can bring what is needed to the next meeting OR the borrower can go to the "Tool Keeper"

I think we can make this work while protecting the club and add yet another great benefit of joining the club

I like where this is going. So say you have to be a RS member for at least a year? Then you can "check out" and return the tools at the meeting, and work your deposit with the toolkeeper.

How about one of those FF rear axle tools, anyone have one? I've done the job with, and done the job without, it's easier with.

I don't know about the time thing - I've only been a member a few months and a tool is on its way that could be "donated" that I wouldn't even be able to use until this September or whatever. Besides there's not really a time requirement to become an officer - myself and Carlton I think are both examples of that. Maybe there just needs to be a little more selectivity when voting members in to make sure they're trustworthy with loaning tools out, and that's just part of membership privileges.

I think if you're a paid member, you get all the benefits of being a member immediately.

If you're someone who just hangs out on the forum and comes to trail runs, no special tools for you.

I like the idea of Quartermaster.
Tools can be available to paid members. Simple deal.
