A statement has been issue by the BOD. Please do not view or log in to the site.  We are running a live test to make sure it will stay up and running and track the info coming in.  We have been under a Denial of Service attack from outside sources.  It has been down since Thursday and we have been using the Facebook page to  post and track missions.  Your SC should have informed all RC and members if possible.


We have been in the middle of migrating the site to all upgraded equipment and a new location when the attack occurred making it more difficult for our web team to track and repair the problem.  During this outage our webmaster was also out of town for work for a couple of days.  Although gone he could still work on configuring the security server remotely but did have to attend meetings for work.

I hope this helps answer some of your questions.  Please watch our Facebook page for further updates.

I see that the website is back up now, but it has been down for a long time.  Please tell me:


Exactly when did it go down?  Why did it take so long to get it up again?
