Club gear is managed by the Quartermasters. Club members can borrow gear for free if they leave a deposit. A full VOC gear policy should be made available. Everyone is supposed to do a workhike before borrowing club gear, although exceptions are sometimes made for new members early in the year.
After many months of discussion and debate, a 5-year plan (2007-2011) has been put forward to revitalize the current gear in the clubroom.
The current gear hours are:
12:00 - 13:00
14:00 - 15:00
13:00 - 14:00
12:30 - 13:30
12:30 - 13:30
