Instructions for logging in and more information are below -- But first- I'm pleased to announce that we are also launching on-line member renewal and payment! Members with a July 1, 2016 anniversary date will receive an email in the next few days from GSFABA with a note telling you it's time to renew. Then, you can log in to your member site at GSFABA.org and renew your subscription online! There's also an option to set-up a monthly payment plan for dues and your 2017 place map ad. As always, you may also send a check to us:
PO Box 42
Shelburne Falls, MA 01370
If your anniversary date is NOT July 1, you'll get a reminder email one month before your renewal due date -- whenever that comes up. Please keep an eye out for the email notification. All members will receive auto-reminders-- and possibly a phone call -- if we don't hear from you, to be sure you've received the renewal email. We’re very excited about the new web listing personalization! We sincerely hope this new system adds value to your membership and that you'll enjoy uploading photos and creating new content on your listing as often as you like. If you have any problems with the new system, please let us know right away and we'll fix it.
To get your log in credentials:
1. Go to: http://www.gsfaba.org/membership/member-login.html.
2. If this is your first time on the new site, just click on "Forgot Login?" and enter your email address.

9:00 AM Bridge of Flowers 10K Classic
10K Course Description:
The initial 3k loop begins with a gradual climb from the village center's historic 1890 iron bridge, where everyone lines up for the start. It then wends through neighborhood streets. The 10k race is a figure 8 loop, and the second loop passes over the same iron bridge, followed by the renowned 1k Crittenden Hill. The well-earned descent that follows is a gravel shaded mile, followed by flats and downhills to the finish under the great balloon arch on Bridge Street. The sixth mile is downhill, and the whole course is very spectator friendly.
