    I agree. let's some of us front the money to get 
lockers and then let members get them for some 
reasonable price (total cost / number of lockers + 
slight extra for NB). i'm willing to chip in a bit. 

    Generally, ideas that require some regular attention 
will fail sometimes, probably increasingly over time, 
without attention to the attenders. best to let those 
who care make noise as they see fit.
