Visual Pursuits Demos

The website you are now viewing is the "napfs.org" site hosted by Visual Pursuits.  As many of you know, our monthly competition and our entire website operation has moved to Visual Pursuits (https://www.visualpursuits.com).  The VP website has many videos to show the use of their site, but there will be demos and a question/answer session at the meeting to familiarize everyone with the new site.  Information on joining is at "Organization > NAPfS Membership".
