Club Stock

From SUWS-Wiki

Club stock

The club maintains a stock of common parts that can be purchased by our members. These can be used for both practical licence training and for member projects. Parts can be purchased at meetings or by speaking to members of the committee.

The price of items in club stocks is rounded up from their original bulk purchase price. This avoids us needing to deal with too much in small coins and allows us to put the extra funds back into increasing the range of items in club stocks and allowing us to have more of popular items.
