GRAYSONCOUNTYARC.ORG Now Running on a New Host

This website has been moved to a new host. As of yesterday, Feb 1, 2019, it was officially moved from Site5 Hosting to InMotion Hosting. The website continues to be secure, and on-line banking transactions are safe. Within the next 24 hours, Paypal will again be available to use, so users will again be able to use two different on-line methods to pay for GCARC membership. Also, as of February 1, all previous 2018 memberships should have been renewed, and any renewal payments received after January 31, 2019 going forward are considered late. Current members will receive their pass-through email addresses and others who renew as of February 1st will have their email addresses re-activated as they renew their memberships. These club email addresses contain K5GCC.org extensions and only will be used as forwarding mailboxes to an email address of their choosing. Also keep in mind that this is an option that can be accepted or refused by any member. This option will be made available to you at the time of your membership. At the time of email address activation, each member as a reminder will receive a note informing them what the address is, and that it is now active. Again, if you no longer wish to use an email address that was previously issued to you or if you just do not want one, it can be not issued or deleted at your request.
