New BSSF Website
We would like to welcome you to our brand new website.
This has been in the pipeline for a few months now and has involved many late nights and whole weekends of hard work from everyone involved. Not to mention the amount of coffee consumed! Our driving force has been to provide something that we, as a sport, can be proud of and excited to show off. Something that does it the justice it deserves.
So, what can you expect? As we launch the site, please bear in mind that even though it has more features and interaction than before, the site is by no means finished. We have a lot of planned functionality to implement over the coming months including online membership and voting capabilities to mention just a few.
For now here are a few of the things we have added:
- Athlete Showcase - So we can show you guys off to the world! (make sure you submit yourself)
- Race Calendar - To keep you in the know when it comes to upcoming events
- Equipment Vendors - Sourcing the best vendors of equipment and other stuff (including discounts!)
- Find your nearest club - One of my favourites, courtesy of UK9
- Documents - Everything nicely organised in one place (more will appear over time)
- Council Contact - A direct line to the BSSF
Obviously I was involved, from a development point of view, by making all of the relevant sections of the site work as we wanted them to. Jess, provided a lot of the content, the rest of the council had their say with a few things and Robert had the tedious job of testing everything and checking for spelling mistakes (so blame him if you spot any). But the real thanks must go out to my friend, Joe W, for the amazing job he has done on the overall styling and design. This guy isn't even involved in sled dog sports but has given so much to this site!
Anyway, we are super proud of it, we hope you enjoy it and we would love to know what you think.
