Rainier Falcons Facebook Group

Hey Gang,

After a discussion at tonight's meeting, I decided to start a Facebook group as a way to market the club and maybe get a new member or two. I'm not sure who else is on FB. I added Joanna and Brian to the group. I remembered Nathan after I made the group and now can't see how to add people. Hopefully you'll see this Nathan!

Anyone else want to join...feel free. I'm not planning on being very active with the group but at least it's out there for people who are searching for us.

Thanks Kenny. That other place I mentioned it might be worth making a presence at is: http://www.hubgarage.com

It appears to be something Chris Jacobs of Overhaulin fame was behind. It's pretty cool to have a place like this that attracts car-only types from all over the world. It is a bit on the slow side, I will warn you, and I get bumped off a lot, but I've already been chatting with an Aussie Falcon owner and I'm trying to become buddies with as many Falcon owners I can find. My garage is Luvfalcons007 in case you want to look.

If anyone wants to join the group, just log on to your FB account, search for "Rainier Falcons", and you should see the group. Then there's a "Join Group" button to click up near the top of the page.

Since I started the group, I get an email notice to go in and approve you to join.

I guess, if possible, we get the big "F" logo on the web site with a link to the Facebook page. Yes?

Good idea Roger. You're full of 'em!

Pat would have to do it. Here's a link to their logo downloads page:

But seriously, no. Facebook requires membership to look at anything. Kind of a pain system, but I suppose that's what it's all about.

I with you 100% Jeff (NOT the finding a new treasurer part, but rather the NOT joining FB part).

I had to join FB for work when we added it as a means of attracting more customers - or allowing for allowing our customers to communicate with us who would otherwise not. I personally don't like Facebook because there is no easy way to disassociate my personal life from that of work (or in this case the Rainier Falcon Club). I get so many customers trying to "friend me" and I don't want to friend them. So I feel a jerk for not doing so. But that is the line I draw.

Also, it allowed me to connect with my family, whom otherwise I'd not hear from for years, but a big part of me wants to un-friend them, my own family, because they tend to just use it as a means of using expletives (cursing) for no other reason than to do it. That irritates me. I don't communicate that way.

So, for those of you who don't want to join - don't. It will not be a mark against you in any way. Consider it just another avenue to reach people we might not otherwise reach. As long as we, whose goal it is to draw people into the club, use it as a tool to do so and not a replacement for the club forum, then we can make everyone happy. I still plan to use this forum 95% of the time. Meaning I'll devote 5% of my time to monitoring it.

That makes sense. I just didn't want to miss anything important because it was discussed on FB exclusively. I don't mind missing that "Brian is now watching Battlestar Galactica - Season Two"... or is that a TWEET?
