Website Renewal

Please excuse the messy website. I am rebuilding the website, hoping to have it in reasonable shape by mid January 2019.

My goals, in addition to the basic website that we already had, are to have a members only area that includes newsletters, a working calendar and a chat for impromptu trips would be nice.

Forms that can be taken from the site, a current gallery of members photos, and the ability to use paypal for membership renewal are on my todo wishlist also.
