Default SZD-55 user group migration

With the recently announced changes to Yahoo Groups ("Starting December 14, 2019 Yahoo Groups will no longer host user created content on its sites. "), the SZD-55 user group is moving to Groups.io. Members will be getting an invitation to join today. The migration is manual (saves the $220USD migration fee). We will probably lose pictures since "...it appears that most Photos sections are currently having an outage and it isn't known if they'll be restored prior to the deadline. "

A lot of good data on the 55 has been gathered, and we will continue to make it better in the future. If you have a 55 you are welcome to join by sending an e-mail to . If you have a problem joining, send an e-mail to .

We think the Basic (free) level has sufficient features for us (1 GB storage - ten times that of Yahoo Group).

Cheers

On December 14th, the content of the SZD-55 user group on Yahoo vanished, and I deleted the group. About half of the previous members have joined the new group, and all are welcome to share in the new group on groups dot io. To subscribe, send an e-mail to .

I've moderated a club Condor group on groups.io for about a year; much easier to join and use for casual users and no spam.
