Moving Net Check In content to permanent home

So we are in the process of linking the EPRC (Eden Prairie Radio Club) website to the domain name and I have access to add posts there. It makes sense to move the content for this over to that home. 
The site (should be fully working very soon) is and I will post the new net check ins there as we do them. will still be the home for my personal experiments and discussions. 
We also now have an Eden Prairie Radio Club facebook page!!!
