All of the equipment listed below is available for loan to BOEALPS members. The gear is for members to try out different types of high priced items to help them decide which one to buy for themselves, or to borrow items that they would infrequently use so would not want to buy. It is not to replace gear that a member should buy for him/herself. Members can check out only one of each item (unless they have a family membership). There is no charge for the equipment, but if you bend it, you mend it. The maximum loan period is for 2 weeks, although with special permission longer loan periods can be negotiated (for an out of the area trip, for example). Equipment must be returned to the same location it was checked out from, and can’t be passed directly on to another BOEALPS member, since the condition of each item needs to be checked after each use.
Note that equipment that is being taken out of Washington or is needed for longer than 1 week requires prior approval from the BOEALPS Executive Board.
The equipment committee is always interested to hear suggestions from members about what gear they feel would be a good addition to the inventory. Keep in mind, however, that club equipment is chosen for its versatility and toughness.
