Yahoo Groups migration to Groups.io

We have decided to move our GARS discussion group from Yahoo to Groups.io. We are planning on doing this on March 1st. This process is relatively quick, but can take a day or two. There is nothing you will need to do in advance of this move. If you are a member of the Yahoo group on March 1st, you will automatically be moved to Groups.io.
