NOTE to Centex PGR members.
As of this moment our site is not infected with a virus. We have been having a problem with a website/server hijacking virus for over a month now and every time Greg, our webmaster, cleans it up, it replicates itself on the site. Because this has been an ongoing problem, Google has taken it upon themselves to list our website as potentially dangerous. I have sent Greg the warning notice and am confident he is working to remedy the situation.
I have been signing in the whole time with no problems. I am not suggesting that you do so unless you are comfortable with doing so. One work-around for missions is to ensure you (and other members) are on the email subscription list. If you know of someone who is not, send their email to me or to Gerry Lowrey and we will subscribe them.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
