ALL forms Now working !

December 8 - We've ironed out all the bugs from our Classified and Chapter Update forms.

Classified Ad Users: You'll notice that we've added a line at the end of the Ad form to allow you to choose 1 photo to attach. It must be in JPEG, GIF, or BMP format and can be any size - preferably BIG.

All forms now require you to check a box so we know you're not a robot - this will reduce the number of spam emails the webmaster receives. Thanks for your patience while we ironed out the "bugs."

Our policy is to answer EVERY email and request form within 24 hours, so I you don't get that acknowledgement, we didn't get your message. Rick Black, Webmaster
