    Please update your online presence (web page)

    Hi folks,

    I'm active on several black powder and CW-related facebook pages. Every time an opportunity comes up to direct someone to the N-SSA, I do so.

    Sometimes I find out that the nearest group/region has a defunct web page.

    The web is the primary way many people go looking for information today.

    Please make sure that at least your region has an up-to-date web presence with up-to-date contact information/mechanisms.

    If you have an old, defunct web page floating around out there, get it taken down. A defunct page is worse than no page at all. Not only does it possibly direct to people/emails that are no longer valid, but it makes it look like the group went under years ago.

    If your team doesn't have a dedicated web page, make sure your regional page has a page for your team with up-to-date contact information.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Had a fellow on facebook looking for black powder shooting in Massachusetts today.

    New England Regional web page is defunct.

    I went and dug the New England contact information out of the digital skirmish line, but it's tedious as you cannot copy and paste the information.

    If anyone wants help setting up a free web site using Weebly I'll be glad to walk you through it. It's a drag-and-drop, web-based interface and very easy to use.

    We can have you up and running in 10 minutes.

    Steve

    Steve thank you for posting this. It's been a headache for us "recruiting" types for a while. The N-SSA should periodically check all the pages they are linked with to make sure they are up and viable IMHO.
