It is with great excitement and pride that I can announce the re-launch of gvfb.org! Many hours of dedicated work on other projects have left me little time to work on this one, but I do hope you appreciate it nonetheless.

I have tried to bring together the three main functions of the old site:

  1. The Brigade Calendar – essential reading for the active membership
  2. Latest News – always on the homepage so absent members can keep updated
  3. History and photos – a reminder of our former glory

As always, please keep feedback and comments to yourselves.

GTB,
