GAF Website
« on: February 16, 2015, 04:43:12 pm »
The website is down. It may be down for quite awhile. I am trying to get possession of the domain name but it is proving to be very difficult. The original owner David Crowfoot did not passed away last year but it has proven almost  impossible to contact anyone that could assist in getting the domain name transferred, I am currently working with name.com and GoDaddy.com to try and resolve the issue. The domain name registration expired over the past weekend but may have been automatically renewed. If it was not renewed I believe I am first in line to acquire it for us. Unfortunately it may not be available until early May.

As soon as I get this done I am going to start herding cats!!

Hi Jerry, I tried a sign-up by mail a few months ago and heard nothing back. Maybe the brochure 'mail to' address was no longer valid. Who knows? Throw me a line Brother......johnsonbarr@jbarrtexas.com Thank you kindly, -J.Barr

Hi JB
You sent a paper registration form? I don't remember those I guess, so they'd be really old. In the mean time, consider yourself enlisted.

General, Sir, there's a good friend of mine from our club, The Blue River Regulators, that has been trying to enlist to no avail. He goes by the name of Broken Nose Scotty(NCOWS). He would be a fine addition to the GAF. He is on the NCOWS forum as Ira Scott.Thank you Sir.

I remember those forms, I had some at work, not sure their origin.   Might not be bad to have again because any of us could have the person fill it out and we could just E-Mail you the information.

Good news I hope!!

I spoke with David Crowfoot this evening when he called me. I soon as we/he re-registers the domain name we should be back in business. This may take a couple days.

According to Whois.com:  Registrant Name:David Crowfoot

This is the same as before and he is allowing our website to be hosted on his server.

There is a difference this time however. In the past we went through Sam Hane, one of the founding members of the GAF and the original webmaster. Sam died this fall and according to Mr. Crowfoot he didn't know who to contact about our website. Now he has my phone number and my e-mail address, so we shouldn't have this problem in the future...unless he dies  ::)
