Any LFS renting PAR meters?

Anyone know of a local fish store or other business that rents waterproof PAR meters to test lighting. Not having any luck in phonebook, on the web, or asking around. I'm in Ann Arbor, but anywhere in SE MI would be fine.

I Just found out that you can get a lux meter, divide the readings by 61 and add 10 percent to get par . You can get one online for less than 20 shipped. I just ordered one 10 minutes ago.
