New Services Web site launched

Outgrowing its home on the MacDill Internet and Intranet Web sites, the Base Marketing Department debuted a domain name all its own on the World Wide Web this month.

On the Internet at www.macdillservices.com, the Web site remains a work in progress but offers enough features and information that it was decided to get the show on the road now and add to it "as we go along," said Wendy Foster, Marketing director.

The site, designed by staffer Web guru Shane Bolda, is a clean and user-friendly portal to information about all MacDill services and products on base. For those who play the popular Match Up game, there is a link to enter game pieces. Golf and bowling specials, fitness and sports programs, recreation and entertainment, along with dining information, all are included now or will be soon as site is developed.

Hours and in some cases fee schedules and prices are listed or will be as the site progresses. A handy pop-up window with a phone directory of various base services is featured.

"We just got to a point where we needed a site of our own," said Mrs. Foster. "We have a lot more control this way and can update it immediately and get information out a lot faster."

Mrs. Foster encourages anyone who uses base services or is interested in keeping in the know, to visit the site and bookmark it for regular revists.

"We will be keeping it current," she pledged. "The idea is to have a place where anyone can go to check out what's going on or is upcoming."
