Hope you like. My friend Tony worked on this for an entire day. All kinds of code he did to switch us over to the cloud. Things should be stable, run a lot better. We are no longer on a shared server. We will have unlimited space to grow.

When I find the time I'll set up a Go Fund Me account so we can raise some money here to support the board. I'd like to pay Tony for his efforts.

First off, reach out to your fellow friends on DTA. Tell him we are back!

Hopefully people notice this is mobile friendly too. Only thing the banner does not scale down. Tony could fix this too but not a priority. I'm amazed of what a smooth transition this was. But it was not easy! Lots of coding to get this to current technology.

Let's take Tony fishing! And buy him a beer or two. Bring him to TrapFest Mark, he'll be a hero for a day.

Once the fund raiser is set up, everyone (lurkers and posters) should contribute something to help finance this website. I believe Mark is basically doing this out of his own pocket and is bearing all the associated costs and time to keep it up and running. You won't find a better source of information about Driftless Area Trout fishing than right here. Kick in some cash, and help keep it going.

Thanks Mark!

I'll certainly contribute to the GoFundMe account once it's up. I can't imagine having to work a full day without visiting DTA a couple of times, just for a much-needed break. The information on here is impossible to beat. Glad everything is back up and running.

Totally Bill. Tony is the reason this site is up and running initially as well as the new site. I could not do any of this on my own. He is one heck of a friend. I just pay the bills which ends up being under $100/year. Maybe that will change as we grow. Any funding we generate here will go strictly for Tony. And you are right, he would have a blast at any of our conclaves.

The contributors help make this site the greatness that it is.
I will be accepting donations for this site at the next Trapfest.

Thanks Mark and Tony
