Special acknowledgement to major contributor Mark this month.


The highest priority is the refactoring of the site to handle clubs/teams more appropriately. This is a long time coming and will resolve most of the issues affecting the display of continuous information for teams. The hope is to complete this in Sept. and move on to continued refactoring of pages if time allows.
