FAAS Website Woes
FAAS uses a number of custom programs to run our website (Directory and Speaker systems) and changes at our internet host now make them incompatible. Unfortunately, our developer is no longer supporting these programs. Our plan is to migrate to a new web platform (Joomla) and roll out new versions of our key systems. Although we have data backups, we are not sure how much of the data we will be able to use. It may take a few months to resolve the issue, so your patience is appreciated.

Swap Meet Presentation
We still get a lot of requests for this, so we are keeping this on our home page.
More and more clubs are looking into Swap Meets as a new way to generate revenue and win over the public.
Check out our Swap Meet Presentation to learn all about conducting a swap meet.
