Both here on Attackpoint, and in the usual place on the EMPO website
. (Fixed acronym.)
There aren't many of us here, are there?
We should add all the other EMPO members who have AP accounts.
I think there used to be more on the list (gabor?) but not much gets posted here, and most club members don't use AP. Jason and Tuuli are busy with other things.
I don't think I can add people, I think they need to join. I suppose I could send a note to stinkfoot, but again, there's not much going on in this "group."
I will admit that I haven't been using AP much. I probably would come here more if there were more chatter, but I'm also not contributing myself so I can't complain :) I do have an RSS feed set up so if I'm paying attention to my feed reader (which isn't always the case) I at least will see when someone posts to this group and can come and read and maybe comment..
To what Frank said, I guess I can add/invite members; there are 13 AP members of the group, but only 4 are showing up when I look at the EMPO group here, probably the folks who use their logs most often. Brenan, Frank, and I have admin powers.
I suppose we could add mosquito (Bob L) and stinkfoot (David H), but they don't use their logs either.
Yeah, it's hard to know. I always want to drive people to these community-type sites in the hopes of fostering discussion, collaboration, friendship, etc. but there's a critical mass that is usually needed to make it worthwhile, plus some actual content to get the ball rolling. The hard thing is getting it to the point where it sustains itself naturally..
Maybe the next time we have an interesting thread or two going here it would be a good time to e-mail the members and encourage them to sign up on AP and join this group, or if they're on AP to join the EMPO group or come and peek at it again if they've joined but never visit.
I do feel like the club would benefit from some kind of online forum, or gathering place where there could be open discussion and communication, and AP seems like the natural place for it. But I'm all talk right now, I don't have the energy to push it myself.. although participating in the last event (directing the meet with Frank, being there for the annual meeting) has gotten me more in the orienteering mindset than I've been in a while.
I just discovered that i an in this blog/forum . Until very recently. I had not looked at AP since the last "spring" event , so i just found this thread . I used the training log a little bit about two years ago when i was doing six mile trail runs to prepare for my ill advised first billygoat attempt . After that , i realized that i needed to build precision navigation skills moreso than stamina/fitness . I'm usually not very chatty , but i can try to contribute more .
Hi David, like we mentioned above, we don't use this forum much, but welcome to the bunch. :-)
