Can I please get some clarifications:
“As of Sept 1, this is a required class to use most Automotive tools” - So everyone who uses the automotive area after this date will need to have taken this class?
“The class fee for this class will be applied to the ‘tool fund’, as Automotive currently does not charge ‘use-based’ fees for utilizing our space.” - So which areas do charge for use-based fees for utilizing the space? I think I am safe, I clean up after myself, I do not steal and mostly bring a lot of my own tools - whats the $10 for, do you want me to give a donation on top of membership to help buy more tools?
I always try to adhere to the “leave the place better than you found it” rule, and I am willing to help people if I can, I have taken a few classes at the space and some are free and some charge for materials, and some charge when there are no materials, I can never understand the consistency of this.
I find the space great value for money but if the classes are subsidizing income for the space then does that not indicate we need to increase the charge?
And if we are plagued with thefts and people not cleaning up after themselves do we not need to enforce stricter punishments?
