As a rule, lending of MCRRC equipment, especially essential/technical equipment such as time machines, display clocks, laptops, sound systems, scaffolding and IPICO equipment, is not encouraged. Minor and non-critical club equipment can be borrowed, as an exception to this rule, by club members for non-club use for no more than two days use with pre-approval from the Executive Director.
If it is deemed necessary to make an exception to this rule, essential pieces of club equipment (sound systems, clocks, scaffolding, time machines and IPICO equipment) can only be rented if they are accompanied by a trained operator (either paid through RMS or volunteer.) Essential equipment may never be rented or borrowed when such rental would interfere or hinder a club-related activity or event. Equipment rental may carry standard RMS rental fees & these fees may be obtained from the Director.
All loan requests must be submitted via email to the Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org. Equipment rentals or borrowing will be tracked by the Director and a signed contract may be required in the event of loss or damage to the borrowed equipment. The lessee will be responsible for the repair or replacement cost of a damaged item.
