I resisted it too, Adrian, but most clubs and many other things are moving to most of their info being on Facebook. You miss out on a heap of info if you don't have it unfortunately.

Facebook the perfect place to post info about events so you can't find anything two days after its been posted.

Event organisers need to post on here and keep updating there first post with any news/info or have a good web site that is kept up to date with updates etc.
Nothing worse than looking through 50 post to try and find the info you need that relates to the event.

Yeh I hear what your saying Matt but I just can't spare the amount of time needed to troll through endless rubbish to find info I want to know. Like yourself I'm sure, I've got so much work on at the moment trying to keep up and plan ahead is hard enough without spending hours on face book to lol.

There are still a ton of us that don't use face book and just because a club wants to use it members shouldn't have to join just to get the info they should be getting anyway.

And cheers for the reply Colin appreciate it you know ive got a memory like a leaky bucket :oops:

Yes, agree totally. There has been a sharp decline in traffic on RCRacer in recent years and I think clubs relying on Facebook is the main culprit.
