New Equipment Proposal

Time to time, members propose the acquisition of new material.
In this page I want to collect all the proposal and the name of the member that will have the delegation of the acquisition and installation of the new material in case of approval.

As it is impossible to keep up to date prices and offers, we will approve for the item class and price,
(i.e. new large softboxes
, 500CHF) with full mandate to the member that has done the proposal, to find the best offer and the best item for the club in the range of the approved cost.
