Joe,

I expect that a fee will be charged per rental. I and a group of guys used to rent a school gym one evening a week (every school year) to play basketball. What I can say is that significant portion of the rental fee is for insurance.

Did you find out how much is the rental rate? Did they actually said that no speakers are allowed, even though if we promise to keep it down?

I wonder whether Jaimo dig out any info at his end.

Regards,

They were pretty specific on the speakers thing.. they were concern when I told them we were a bunch of audio hobbyist

the rate info I have for various sized rooms.. starts from $17 an hour up to $50 an hour and there is a minimum 4 hours rental

Oh, well . Too bad.

I thought the rate would be around 10-12$ for the small room. Look like the rate has gone up. Even for the small room, 4 hours will cost around 75$. It is kind of expensive unless we can get a large enough group (>10 people).

Regards,

let's say $80

4 ways it's $20
8 ways it's $10

I would be willing to pay up to $20 for a nice 4 hour session to listen to nice amps

Default Community Room

I managed to reach the person responsible for community room rentals - The room I have in mind is located at the Margaret Dunn Library in Caledon, at the end of the 410. It's about a 45 minute drive from the east side of Toronto and about 30 mins from the west end of Mississauga.

We are allowed to use loudspeakers as long as we keep our listening levels reasonable and don't upset the librarian. The folks there are easy going and the room is even used for dance lessons etc. Acoustics are however not great - think large empty room with glass all round and a vinyl floor covering!

Rental rates are $22-60 per hour plus $3-05 for insurance. This works out to about $132 for five hours (call it $14 per person for 10 people and keep in mind that parking is free!)

The only open Saturday is July 14 and I will need to reserve the room ASAP.

How many folks say Yes?

Looks like there's no interest - I need to get back to the library on Monday with a confirmation - pls let me know if you wish to participate.
