Click on any page on the WAC site, it says:

Error establishing a database connection

What does this mean?

It means it's broken and they need to fix it.
The web server can't reach the database, or DB server, that stores site data.

Aren't they the ones that you have to be a member to bring a firearm in if you want to trade or sell?

It looks like the web site is up again today.

Yes. But I think they have suspended that rule lately. As one more desperate attempt to get people into the shows.

After 34 years, I let my membership lapse in January. Due to Covid, they haven't put on a show in a year. Beyond that, changes in Wash. state law make dealing in firearms at gun shows very problematic. So gun shows are no longer of utility to me. As a viable organization, I don't know how much future they have.

After decades of dithering, financial irregularities and bad decision making about donations to political causes, they finally bought a piece of real estate with the remnants of the "building fund." In Sumner, WA. It's an office space, which got them out of paying rent and I think it has a couple of rental spaces that they actually make a little money on. But as for holding gun shows, attendance will be so bad in future that maybe they won't have to rent a hall to hold their shows in either. They can just set up half a dozen tables at their office in Sumner.
