How to Use Your Golden Dragons Website Login

Club member login to GD website.

After completing the one-time Member registration, each GD member has a personal, private login to this GD website. A few of you share your GD login with your partner, so the same login/password works for either of you.

  • The password is private to you, and you may change it any time you want.
  • The login is used for access to your financial statement and online payment, members-only documents, and the club all-member team and your racing team(s).
  • Joining a race team requires you to login.

Logging in.

  • Open the website
  • Click this Member Login link to open another tab to do your login. This preserves this page of information in this tab for you to refer back to. If you don't need this page of instructions, click the "Member Login" button in the top menu bar in the upper right corner of the screen.
  • Enter your Username (email address) and password, and click "Sign-in" button. If your login fails, you can use the "Forgot password?" link to reset your password.
  • You'll see your "Member Account Home" screen, like the one below.
  • From here you can access all your personal and member-only information, all your teams, and make payments.

Pay your bill, after inspecting it.

  • When logged in at the Member Account Home, if you see a balance due (see above figure), click the "Pay Now" button. You will see your detailed financial statement explaining the balance.
  • Click the "Next" button and fill-in the usual card payment information. You can reduce the amount you pay as indicated below.

  • The card is charged right away. Once the transaction is completed, the balance due will reflect your payment as soon as you "refresh" that screen.

Inspect your bill.

  • When logged in at the Member Account Home, if you don't have an outstanding balance, but want to see your Account Balance statement to know what you have paid for, click the "My Registrations" button and the "Print Statement" button next to the item of interest.
  • Click "My Member Account Home" in the upper right corner to leave that screen.

Edit your profile.

  • When logged in at the Member Account Home, you can change information about yourself. Click the "<your name>" link on the right side of the screen under Member Profiles.
  • Make the changes you wish. NB: if you change your email address in the profile it will be effective for emails sent to you through the GD websites, but it will not change the Username you use to login to these GD sites.
  • If you want to add or change your profile photo, please follow the instructions in the "Upload Your Photo" document here.
  • If you want to enable/disable your cell phone for receiving Text Alerts from the Commodores, make sure you declare or remove a "Cell Phone Carrier". Do the same for "All GD Members" and other race teams you are on, using the "Edit your own team profile..." section below.
  • Click the "Save Changes" button. Click "My Member Account Home" in the upper right corner to leave this screen.

Teams - All GD Members team, and Race teams.

Our website allows us to make teams - a permanent, club-wide "All GD Members" team, and seasonal race teams. To join each team you must specifically register for it, then click the Invitation link in the "Team Connect Invitation" email sent you. Connecting to a team website allows you to interact with any or all members of that team (email, phone, rosters) and view documents pertinent to that team.

Connect to a team website.

  • To connect to the website for the club "All GD Members" or any Race team you have already signed-up for, click the "View Team Assignments" button on the left in your "Member Account Home" screen (see Logging In section above),.
  • Click the "Team Page" button to the right of the team you are interested in.
  • The next screen will show the team webpage, OR it will show you green notice bar(s) like this.
