*Cactus IFT has elected to participate in a pilot program through IFT. As a part of this program, all members must belong to both IFT and Cactus IFT (this will become mandatory in 2013). If you currently belong to one and not the other, you will be grandfathered in.

Please welcome our newest members!


We are always looking for volunteers in any capacity.

Please contact Cactus IFT at if you are interested. We would love to have you!
