Taking the First Steps

Hi, there.

This is the first of many steps in building a website for SPARTA.  We may not know what we're doing, but there's no substitute for jumping in and getting started.  Look here to find meeting minutes and notices, pictures, information, and the News and Notes.  We'll publish the monthly newsletter here, but fear not!  You will still get it via email and snail mail.  This will be our growing year, and we'll see what this website can do.

We'll post on a weekly basis, so swing by on a regularly.  Of course, there's always the possibility that we'll crash the World Wide Web entirely, and destroy civilization altogether.  Wait, that was last month...
