A: Previous member accounts are placed in a "suspended" status at the end of each season. Returning members must first login using the "Registration" tab on the home page to register. Once the account has been verified and payment has been processed, the account status will be changed to "active" and can be accessed through the Sign In function. Members will receive an email letting them know when their account status has been changed, usually within 24 hours of registration.
