    For a couple of days last week and over the weekend, a number of people noticed that our website was not accessible.  Some people commented that access to the site was inconsistent - working on some devices, and not on others.

    Well, you were not wrong about the problem.  Our web site host - Wild Apricot - hosts a number of websites in addition to ours.  And, as luck would have it, one of these other sites (not ours of course) was being used to send out "phishing" emails to lure people into giving up personal identification.  Comcast discovered this and shut down access to the Wild Apricot site.  So not only was our site inaccessible, but many other web sites were not available either.  

    Once we notified Wild Apricot of the problem they shut down the offending site and worked with Comcast to get access restored to the remaining sites hosted by Wild Apricot.

    Since Comcast denied access to all the Wild Apricot sites, only those users who use Comcast to access the Internet were affected (and I happen to be one of them).  Other members that use AT&T, or access the Internet from their mobile phones or tablets were able to get to our site since those don't use Comcast.

    Our site is accessible again via Comcast as of today.  Just thought I'd answer the inevitable questions.

    Starting on Saturday, December 6th, Saturday rides will start at 9:00 AM instead of 8:00 AM.  While this is the norm, please check the calendar since ride leaders do sometimes alter the start time to fit the ride.

    The Saturday ride time start of 9:00 AM will last until the end of February.  So the first 8:00 AM ride of 2015 will be on Saturday, March 7th.

    The six open Board of Director Positions have been filled. 

    At one point a few days ago there were 7 candidates for the 6 open positions, but one person - Ashish Parikh - decided not to run for the Board again.  So, with 6 candidates for 6 positions, there is no need for an election. 

    According to our bylaws, the six candidates are elected.

    The candidates are:

    • Carolyn Mason (incumbent)
    • Aaron Phillips
    • Ron Arth
    • Lisa Koltun
    • Betsy Ingram
    • Gayle Cepparo

    We welcome back Carolyn and Lisa for another term on the Board, and welcome the four new Board members.  Say hello to them the next time you see them!
