Welcome to the SDGRS website!
(Members, be sure to log in to see all the menus and resources and pictures)
Note: changes are underway on the site.
I'm changing to a more updated system, with easier menu operations. There may be interruptions in function. Colors and highlighting will be changing.
Wonder how others do it? Over 600 club newsletters for you to read!
We cooperate with EIGHT other clubs and have 677 of their newsletters for you to read at your leisure. Be sure you are logged in and go to the Member Resources to browse clubs and newsletters.
Get involved! There are several committees you can join, no elections needed.
See all of our committees HERE join up and have more fun!
Did not receive your newsletter?
Unfortunately many email services are NOW blocking files near the 10 megabyte threshold. We have been contacted by members and testing has shown this has happened to COX and iCloud email addresses, and there is likely more. Usually what happens is large attachments are put into a SPAM folder IF you use webmail.
We're working to limit ths size of future newsletters, but the block is at YOUR email provider, which we have no control over. The best alternative is to log on the the website, and download the current newsletter (RESOURCES menu at the top of every page). This is unlimited in size and will ALWAYS work since you get the newsletter directly from us. Contact any board member if you have issues with your login or password.
Let us know !!!!
At a recent meeting, several people commented that there were issues with logging in, and/or getting newsletters. Let any board member know if you are having issues.
Check the SDGRS calendar:
This is updated before anything else, we work hard to keep it updated. 90% of the questions emailed in are about event times and dates. Click CALENDAR at the top of any page.
No newsletter? Did your membership lapse? Like to Join?
If you no longer receive the newsletter, then your SDGRS membership has lapsed. We'd like you back! Click here for the membership/renewal form and renewal instructions. We give a "grace" period, so while dues are due by the end of January, we will send the newsletter to last year's members up to and including the March issue.
