The new club website is packed with features that are intended to help club members manage their own event bookings. In order to take advantage of these new features it is recommended that all members take the time to register and log on to the new site, so that all the features can be enjoyed and see the items that are not on the public side of the site. Any member of the HMC Committee or our ‘web-guru’ Phil Whitehurst are happy to provide help if you need to get started. Some members have asked how they can book a guest onto a meeting using the new website booking system. A new feature of a ‘ +1’ has been added onto Event pages so that a guest or additional member can be added at the same time as an individual booking. The Comments section of each Event page can be used to communicate with other members; for example lift shares and other matters related to the Event can be raised with other members. Don’t forget that we still have our Facebook page where you will find posts and pictures of the latest activities of members – the link is at the top of this email.
Calendar of Events for 2015 The finishing touches to the events for next year are being finalised currently and are due to be published – keep an eye on the club website.
