Looks good.  A little long to load for those not using highspeed but hey, who plays these online games using dialup anyway?  I like the colors but for the Banner and the tabs being White on light blue making it hard to see.  I think a red-pink color for those areas would be good.  No alternate text supplied.No alternate text supplied.No alternate text supplied.No alternate text supplied. (holding back the 5th star for the hard to read tabs).

The background tiling hurts my eyes...

The super contrasty backgrounds and thick borders really distracted me from the content.  Change the background jpeg to something simple that's seamless, or better yet, put a no-repeat tag on it and blend it with a neutral background color.

The banner is a bit hard to make out. The font looks cool, but the white on bright blue doesn't make it very apparent.

Same problem with the menu.

You're at ~950px browser width, which means anyone running a 17" monitor is going to have to look at the site in near full screen size.

You have about 325px space from the top of page to top of content. That's acceptable IMO, but could be better if you trimmed up the empty space.

The bright blue -> bright gold -> dark red color combination result in an eye-bleeding painful transition that makes reading near impossible. Change the Red/Black pattern to a low-contrast Taupe/White pattern and make the font black or dark grey. That should make the site a lot less jarring.

The repeating background is also a bit bleh. I loathe floating backgrounds though, so I would say work on making the background more of an acceptable repeat. use a low contrast pattern background and fade out the edges of the image. Or just scrap the land portion and use a cropped portion of the cloudy sky as your background.

two things first i would suggest moving the officers window to the right side to help even out the length of the page.  also i would suggest resizing your background so you dont have it repeatting or at the very least so you dont get bits of it sticking out randomly from the sides.

For yours i would recommend removing the huge images from the news section on the front page and moving them to the media section you have.  this will help with loading times for visitors and also most people dont wont to scroll down four or fives pages just to see whats there.  Also everything seems to be spread pretty thin you might want to combine some pages like the pictures and media or the polls and form.  that would also help thin out you nav bar a bit.

ok this looks good but i would make the center part smaller at least small enough so that you dont have to scroll over to see all of the center part.
