Administrative announcements. 14th February 2007: We have decided to remove the Webstats4u web statistics link. It generates popups of an increasingly evil nature. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the links are close to p**n. Yesterday, it offered me a registry cleaning service and that was the last straw --- to me that was an offer may I please take over you machine . If anyone thinks I'm overreacting, let me know. If anyone has suffered badly from these popups, please accept our apologies. I am working on a substitute.

We can now set up email addresses, e.g. bertie.ahern (at) finnvalleyac (.) com. Let me know if you want one, and your chosen name. But please do not advertise any email address --- automatic email harversters constantly trawl the web; hence the obfuscation to attempt to defeat them. Contact me (j. c.) via webmaster (at) clubname (dot) com.
