FWRC Website Being Rebuilt

The FWRC webmaster is in the process of rebuilding the FWRC website from the ground up, after receiving reports that the previous website might have been infected with malware. The webmaster will add content gradually as time permits, including some information that existed on the previous website. As a part of the process, the webmaster has migrated the site from version 1.5 of the Joomla content management system to version 2.5, which uses a different database structure (and therefore creates a migration path that's inconvenient, at best). Please be patient as the webmaster rebuilds the site. If you notice any errors or problems, please let him know: This email address is being protected from spambots.
