Cleared for take off
Hi, and welcome. Not just to the news blog, but to the entire website. I’ve spent many hours working away on every aspect of this, from bringing the idea to the committee with a rough estimate of costs, to buying a domain name, setting up the hosted space and eventually turning it into a fully fledged site. I’m pretty happy with it, I’m a IT support engineer and not a web developer, they’re very different things, so if you find bugs or think something could be improved, please flick an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll attempt to fix it up.
This site isn’t intended to take over from the Facebook page, it’s trying to be more of a library. Things get lost on Facebook pretty easily, so if you’ve got the calendar, results, links to pictures and various documentation all in one area, people can (hopefully) find everything very easily. I’ve set up the calendar in Google Calendar so those that want can easily add it directly to their phone or desktop calendar client. With a bit of luck everyone will find it handy and easy to use, the events have the location of the site in them so people can find us without getting lost.
The only thing we don’t have yet is a classifieds page. I didn’t want to put one up with nothing in it, so if you’ve got a bike to sell, email me the details and I’ll create a new page to put it on.
Share the site around, get the word out there and check back often to see what this great little club is up to.
