Hello players,

I have undertaken the role of communications director, and thus one of my duties is to manage the club website. As some of you may know, the website has been out of date for much time. I intend to change that by revising various aspects of the site and making posts (such as this one). If you have any suggestions as to how this site can be improved you can email them to, I appreciate any help. Thank you!
