Well, if I'm honest, there's two new discussion topics since the weekend, one of which is from Tim and the other is from me! And there are only six members, so it's a bit lonely in the members' lounge. But I'd like to think those new topics are of interest to all fencers (and parents). Apply for membership! We want the opinions of fencers and parents in the discussions.
Membership is easy. Just visit the front door of the Members'Area (by clicking the Members links from the ECfencing web site, or going directly to http://groups.google.com/group/ECFencing). If you have a Google Account (because you're a Gmail user for example) just click the "Sign in and apply for membership" link.
If you don't have a Google Account, fear not, you do not face a huge hurdle. Creating a Google Account is not a big deal and doesn't come with a heap of baggage. I wrote about this in a previous article but, simply put, you just need to click the "Sign in and apply for membership" link and then click the Create an Account button over the right-side.
Once you've got a Google Account and you've applied for membership of the club's discussion group, you'll quickly be granted membership (if I recognise you as a fencer, parent or coach) and you'll be able to access the Members' Area. Once in, I recommend you click the Edit My Membership link on the right-side of the page and select the most appropriate "How do you want to read this group?" option for you. In essence, you can choose to be emailed whenever there's a new addition to a discussion, or just once a day (with a digest of new posts), or never (meaning you need to visit the Members' Area to see the latest contributions to discussions).
The fencers always show a great deal of enthusiasm when offered the opportunity to contribute to the club's progression. The Members' Area will become a popular place for discussion. Join now, don't miss-out!
