Website Updates

Yeah! It's finally happening ... the website is getting a much needed update.

Actually it's more like a major overhaul.

While a lot of work has already been done, there's still a whole bunch left to do ... like adding all the old content back in. We'll probably also be tweaking the colours and photos a bit too ... maybe a few times ... until we find something that fits just right.

The great thing about the new website is that we're now able to offer an iCal compatible events calendar (so you can add our events to your Google Calendar or other favorite calendar program). We'll also be able to finally provide additional features specially for our club members.

If you had any of our old web pages bookmarked you'll need to update your links. And if you can't find the page you're looking for please send us a note and we'll get the information to you.
