Information of Interest
Chat Forum is Live!
We are testing a new feature of the website. You must be registered for the website and logged in to view this new Chat Forum. On the members menu, you'll find a new option for this page. Click on the "Chat Forum" menu option (to the right of "Nexus").
With the COVID-19 pandemic ongoing, we want to give all club members a way to stay in touch, even if virtual is your personal choice. The only information found there will be created by other users, so give it a try!
There are going to be "bugs" in this system. Please let the Webmaster know if something isn't working properly.
P.S. - ALL formal club information will still be communicated on the website Blog and Schedules pages, via direct email, and/or through this newsletter, The Weekly.
