We have collected enough donations to give the Amel Yacht Owners Group 3 years' worth of fees to our host Groups.io. I will see if I can transfer all of the funds to Groups.io to prepay their fees for the next 3 years.
Thanks to everyone.

We have 1300 (?) members. Perhaps a small assessment could help cover the cost also. I am willing.

Groups.io has increased the price we pay for Webhosting, Operation, and Support for our Amel Yacht Owners Group site from $110 per year to $220 per year. We have the Premium Plan, which you can see here: https://groups.io/static/pricing
To review, in February 2019 when we moved from Yahoo toGroups.io, I guaranteed the annual payment of Group.io fees for the first five years and I stand by that even though I not aware that the price would increase. Several months after we moved from Yahoo, we were able to sell advertising to QSails on our Wiki page. We believed that this would offset the Group.io costs.
I will continue to guarantee the Group.io costs, but I will also look for other ways to offset them.
