How about a Babblers pyrometer for use by the members

at track type events? It would be a small drain (~$150) on the Babblers bank account. Once purchased it could be used by groups that go to DE's and AutoX events that don't already have a pyrometer. Feedback?

For those that don't know, a pyrometer allows the temperature of the tire to be measured and is useful in determing, among other things, the "optimal" tire pressure when running events.

A bigger picture perspective

Looking at it from a slightly larger perspective.

Would it make sense to then ask for a small donation back from people who then use any group purchases that exceed some specified amount.

In the above example, perhaps $1 or $2?

There are probably other items that could benefit from this approach.

Upon more reflection

Collecting the small amount back is probably not worth the hassle unless we are on a real tight budget, which I don't believe to be the case.

I think this type purchase is a good use of funds in excess of consumable expenses such as server time and business cards.

Other examples might be service manuals, ramps or special tools.
