8 ) Rental Fees Club Supplies
•   In an effort to maintain the current club owned tournament supplies the board has voted to have certain rental fees for items.
•   The J-Town board does not have the intention of making a profit from this, just being mindful of the future of the club items and the fact that they will need replacing and updating as time goes on.  The intention of these rental fees is just that. 
•   By setting the rental fee of a per person standard we hope to keep it as fair as possible for TDs.  This way the fee will reflect the number of players that benefited and not penalize TDs who do not get a good turnout.
•   This program will be watched and monitored to deem successful or not. 
•   Must be a current club member to rent supplies.
•   A rental contract will be signed by the TD before taking any supplies.  The signing party will be responsible for returning the supplies borrowed in a similar fashion to what they are received or will be responsible for the replacement fee.
•   All supplies must be returned within a week of the event with the fee due upon return.  A shorter time frame may be necessary if supplies will be needed at another event and will be disclosed prior to borrowing.
•   See attached pricing.
