  • Viewing The New Website Issues
    A couple problems have showed up on the new website.  Some people are having trouble viewing particularly the workshop charts and other similar uploaded documents. One thing that you can try is to view it in a different web browser. (Google, Internet Explorer, Firefox etc.)  We are working on this glitch, but don't have a perfect solution yet. If Mountain Oaks has been your default homepage, the new website will not usually come up properly until you go to the new website by typing it in ( and then resetting your homepage to the new address that pops up in the address bar. If you need help with other problems with the website you can call Jean at ext. 2226.
