I would like to introduce you to our blog page.
http://afta.strikingly.com/

This will eventually take the place of the forum page on the website.
So please subscribe to be notified of any updates that we may post.

My idea is to have this take effect by next general meeting of the new trapping year.  (Sept 2017)

I will give everyone a heads up and then the forum page will be deleted from the website!

Please be patient with us while we transition to a new website in the near future.

Thank you
Jamie
Treasurer and Amateur Webmaster
