Moving Website Host

Posted by Lewis on February 9, 2019

Once this season is over, roughly around the start of May I will be moving the website over to a better hosting provider. Hopefully this will speed up the website loading times but other than that, should have no effect. However, for a few days the website could be will as it transitions. As the season comes to a close I will announce the date this will take place. If anyone has any questions or needs the website to be up for a specific date please let me know
