To our valued North Country SportsNet readers:
We just received word from Exposure Manager, the photo-ordering system for all of our photos for the past 12 years that they are officially going out of business on March 15th, leaving us very little time to come up with an alternative solution to the photo portion of our operations. It appears that on March 15th, the sales website will disappear for all photos we have posted going back 12 years, including recent ones. We will be contracting with a new photo operation soon and will be restoring many of the recent galleries from the current school year, as time permits. Therefore, after March 15th, many of the links on our current web pages will no longer be valid until we get a chance to update them. However, restoring 12 years of photos to the internet would be a monumental task that would take months, if not several years. We still have the library of photos in our office, if you wish to contact us about past photos that you would still like to obtain. We suggest that if you have photos you have not ordered and still wish to place an order, please do so as soon as possible so that we might get them processed before the Exposure Manager website goes dark on us. We apologize for the inconvenience. We hope to have the new photo operation ready shortly.
