1) Everyone will need to fill out a waiver form (for insurance/liability purposes)

2) Everyone must wear closed-toe shoes. Vibrams and Crocs do not supply sufficient protection, so we do not consider them close toed shoes (for saving your toes!). 
Both the waiver and close-toed shoes are extremely important as we are a fully equipped workshop (hot shop, wood shop, machine shop).  Members will be working on equipment, so safety is very important.  If anyone refuses to sign the waiver, or shows up in open toed shoes, we cannot allow them on the tour.
