About our Web Site
History of the SCAFS web site
This web site was redeveloped from the ground up in November 2006 with the goals of making it as easy as possible to find information quickly, and to update the site's behind-the-scenes programming to meet modern web design standards. We hope everyone likes the new format. With the relaunch of the site in 2006 the site was also moved to a new home on a SCDNR web server (thanks SCDNR for hosting the site for a few years). Then, in February 2008, SCFWA and SCAFS jointly obtained a new web hosting providor and our site was moved off of DNR's server. An archive of the old site (prior to November 2006) is available for download in Acobat PDF format [3.4 MB]. We thank Jason Moak for hosting and maintaining the site during those years.

The code of this site's pages can be W3C validated using the links at the bottom of each page. Using modern web standards, and semantic, validated coding assures that our site loads fast, looks great, is accessible, and has a stable, consistent appearance in any modern, standards-compliant web browser.
