The TRDMA is getting a new web site!

Welcome to the new TRDMA web site! We want to offer our members, supporters and the interested public a much better web presence. As I am posting this, the first stage in our transition is in progress. Here is the plan:

  1. Transition all the content from our old web site at trdma.org (including historical race results etc) to the new site (currently at trdma.info).
  2. Transition our mailing list to the new server.
  3. Switch the domain name back from trdma.info to trdma.org
  4. Add new features such as automated on-line sign up, merchandise etc.

Why is this so complicated?

Mostly this process is so complicated because we don’t only have to move a site but also a mailing list. The second reason is that our old site is a very manual and hard-to-maintain site and our new site uses a content management system (WordPress). The old site has been hosted for us for free by a member (many thanks!!), but with the new site we are moving to a large-scale web host. This is a transition for our very small team of volunteers!

Thank you for your patience, and please let us know in the comments what you think and what you’d most like to see here!
