    Not only keeping track of the finances, but what about actual ownership?
 I like the club idea but I can just see someone down the road trying to sue
the club for ownership of a particular piece in the case of a dispute. No
doubt there are a lot of legal aspects that would have to be worked out to
protect everyone involved. Then there's the logistics if the club does have
a single repository for storage of the equipment.

    I'd certainly be interested in being part of it though. All of us
together could certainly make a bigger impact than singularly.
