Oh cool, I didn't know this had been done :)

Thanks for offering! Several of us have hosting for our own domains,
but we'd like to steer clear of something owned by one person moving
forward. The issue we ran into with Ace hosting was only the guys at
Ace had /full/ control, they weren't always available, and eventually
they had to even shut down my external access - so we were forced to
nudge them for any changes and this didn't work out so great.

Unfortunately they require real, legal non-profits - of which we are
not one, we're just a "club" really with no legal non-profit status.
Certainly worth looking into for some things that the
free-for-everyone google apps offer, it might be nice to have email
for instance.

Cool, once we get things launched it would be great if you could help
out with the website administrative tasks. Alex and I were doing
everything before and it got a bit tedious - help is always good!
