Coaching: Stellan and Angie Bengtsson are back.  However, Stellan needs a hip resurfacing surgery soon, so it is not clear when coaching will resume.  Website: Suggestion to not keep the blog on the front page to be viewed at all times.  Another suggestion was made to place a facilities picture so that it is not too plain.
