https://members.ssa.org

Yes, the link is in members.ssa.org, but when I try to access it, I get the 404. Other links on the page work OK.

On https://members.ssa.org after logging in, click on My Home Page, then on the Sailplane Racing menu, click on Contest Rules and Process. Don't click on Sailplane Racing at the top as it will redirect presently.

So, trying to fill out my paperwork for Region 2 Contest using the link emailed to me when I did the initial, online registration. You need to sign the application, but the link in the email returns a 404 error. I tried logging in and going to the Contest Registration section, but that looks like it ends up with a re-registration (i.e. starting over). I just need the completed PDF(S) so I can sign them...


Yes, its definitely in a partly-broken state. You can start a contest entry form; but it won't complete and you also cannot look up your form if you previously signed up (either as a normal contestant or via the Contest Administration system at https://members.ssa.org/cde/login.asp )

Anyone have an idea of who to contact at the SSA to look into what's causing the problem?

The link worked fine on your entry submitted around 7PM EDT yesterday. Worked fine on this morning's re-test.

Quick update on the Contest Registration / Forms issue:

Thanks to Frank for some quick investigation, he and I have confirmed that these systems appear to work on Google Chrome. MS Edge (despite being Chromium-based) does seem to be having a problem; not sure about other browsers yet.

But for now it is likely that people can successfully enter/view/edit Contest entry forms if they use Google Chrome to do so.

Take care,

Member lookup is now alphabetized by first name and includes nothing but a bogus twittee handle. Lovely. sent e-mail to webmaster.
