CCA Microscope needs a new home

The club microscope needs to leave my house. We're doing some work in the house and I need to clear out space.

I could drop off with someone local (Germantown, Damascus, Clarksburg) to me could take it and store it, unless someone further in way wants to pick it up.

No, it's a loaner -- you pick it up from whomever is storing it and either return it, or pass it on to the next person.

It should probably be in the CCA Storage unit with the rest of the stuff, rather than in any member's possession for prolonged periods. Its an open door for problems for items to get stored and passed around members -- things get lost, clubs lose track of it, etc. Plus, what happens if its damaged while being stored by a member (due to something out of their control) or if that member simply leaves the club, and is impossible to contact again (which I've seen happen with clubs and items).

That makes sense. If it belongs to the club then all club members should be able to use it, but having a small lab facility in a personal space for club members to use can be challenging. Does CCA have a storage unit?

I'm not sure if we have a storage unit. I know the board asked me to "return" it when I left the BOD, but did not give me any options for who would take it off my hands. I would like it out of my house because the odds of it getting lost or buried in the attic during construction are pretty high.

it lived at my house for a while, I'm happy to take it back. I do use it occasionally and it'll be available for anyone else that needs it.
