New website being developed

The first draft of the new website for the Sylvan Lake Customs and Classics car club has been published.   Wendy Davidson and Murray Fleming are in the process of designing and building the website.  This is an interactive process and the website is a “work in progress” that will be evolving over the next few weeks as the design is adjusted based on feedback from club members.

Remember that each club member is responsible for emailing to Murray Fleming ( the following:

  • A picture of their car.
  • A description / history of the car and the member.
  • A picture of the member.  If your spouse is a member, please email a picture of both of you.

Initially, Murray and Wendy are simply going to keep adding content based on the feedback from the August club meeting.  However, if you have an idea  — or, even better, if you would like to submit some content for the web, simply email Murray with the information.

Also, we are looking for input on what should be the feature picture on the home page for the club.  Right now, we have simply selected an arbitrary picture.  Please email suggestions to Murray for what you would like to see as the feature picture.
