Nate: (lists and explains options)
Option 1, Extra Key: $10 for the key like usual, make it officially permissible to entrust it to a "family member" only for purposes of picking stuff up or dropping stuff off. This person could not use tools, have guests, etc. Would this person have to be voted on by the membership? Also make it permissible for a member to temporarily entrust their *first* key to someone else, given the same limits above?
Option 2: Family and Friends: Any member can buy an additional "usership" for $25/mo, and give it to anyone they choose. Recipient would have to be voted in like any regular member, would be able to use tools and have guests, but not vote.
Option 3: both option 1 and 2
Option 4: Do Nothing.
