Total

$2860

The total budget of $2860 includes $576 from club funds which amounts to 20% of the total. The sale on the package deal on the 8” telescope and mount expired. This relieves the time constraint on this purchase; however, the package is now about $100 more than initially estimated. This can be made up from club funds, increasing the club amount to $676.

Equipment Check-out 1. Fill it out for all club equipment you have. 2. Contact a key-holder to arrange a meeting time. 3. Bring in equipment to show key-holder and get signature. Current key-holders: Steve Conard Dan Smith Helen Hart Mark Kochte
