You might see at the bottom of this page that "This Forum Is Hosted For FREE By ProBoards".
Well it is... and it isn't.
It's hosted for free for sure, but the hosts also would prefer to plaster this site with advertisements to help pay their bills. To deter them for doing that, the admin pay a small fee to keep this site free for ads and nice to use.
We're happy to pay this if the site is useful, but we're not going to bother paying if nobody is using it.
So you, as a community, have a choice.
1. Be actively involved, post replies, start new threads, maintain the spirit of Sheffield Bridge Club and help this site to prosper. 2. Don't.
If you choose option #2 then that's fine, but you don't get to complain if the site gets taken down.
