Website News

Our website will be undergoing some major changes within the next couple of months. (Hopefully sooner, rather than later.)

The purpose of these changes are to better manage news and resources for our members, class lists, and membership.

The changes include a new navigation structure, and a lot of behind-the scenes stuff that will make the website work on all types of devices. Consequently, the website will change dramatically in some ways.

The current website has thousands of files and over 400 directories. It takes time to review each of these and make necessary changes.

Your webmaster is working as hard as she can on this improved version. As I work for a living, I have to do this volunteer web stuff in my free time.

Currently, I am working on the Members Only area, which seems to have some major problems with our class lists and is not working at this time. I have removed the link to log in from our website for the time being.
