It was also proposed that this would be discussed at the next AGM.
Apart from Trip reports (which there is a separate trip report section available to anybody) our club section is not used that much. If we had our own forum we would not have to put up with people putting their comments on our threads who are not even in our club!
As for the people not receiving information for trips then they will have to pull their finger out and look at the website. I know of quite a few members (including some very dear to me) who do not bother checking their emails from one week to the next so emails cannot always be relyed on.
What you say sounds very sensible, Andy.
Unless, of course, your club wants to hold secret discussions on its forum that it doesn't want the wider caving community to know about...
And yes Roger. You probably know very well that there are times when clubs wish to discuss things in private before
letting the wider community know about it.
So I think the AGM is the place for us to discuss this. Thanks.
