    Hey guys, just to let you know that the website hosting is about to expire on July 1st. I've thought about it in depth and have come to some conclusions about it. Firstly, currently, it's unsustainable in terms of cost and I utterly dislike asking everyone for cash for something they doesn't really benefit the club directly. Furthermore, no one has any time to dedicate to maintaining it properly.

    Therefore, I am making the recommendation that it should just shut down. NO MORE "DUES"... yay! We still own the domain name for the next year and a half should we want to restart it or if someone wants to take the reigns of it now, then great... I'm rather busy with something else at the moment. ;) In place of the website, I am making the recommendation that the SF Fan Force group on Facebook be reinstated, brand new, with safe guards in place to prevent misuse. There are other reasons I think this is a better alternative as other clubs and groups do similar things on FB but more over it gives us a most social interaction rather than a static informational website.

    What do folks think?

    You can basically do all that stuff for free in facebook (pictures, profiles, events etc). plus it is more easily advertised and searchable.

    Alright the group is likable! :D I posted some pics and there is random news... To insure the procedural safety of the group this time I have made Rachel, Robert, and Tom admins as they have all currently or previously hold some kinda admin position before with in the club. This will insure that should something come up that one person can not just... umm... what's the best way to phase this... lay waste to a groups structure to make a point... No matter how important the point may have been, there are usually better ways in dealing with problems. Albeit not as quick. ;) If you have pics and such feel free to post, although I reserve the right to enhance and modify and/or delete redundancy. Thanks all. =D
