As part of our efforts to improve communications, we have created a WhatsApp Group that we will use to notify all interested parties of planned rideouts and events in the coming year. The use of text messages has become ridiculously onerous and unnecessarily complicated as the contact list has grown and so, reluctantly, we will be phasing out this service.
Those of you already using WhatsApp *should* have received an invite link. If you are using WhatsApp and did NOT receive an invite, please contact Tony – details below.
If you want to join in with the WhatsApp group you will need to download the FREE, SAFE and VERY SIMPLE software onto your ‘phone or pc/laptop/tablet/mac etc, and then contact Tony to request a Group Invite Link.
You can choose to leave the group at any time if you find it inappropriate, irrelevant or, heaven forbid, lose interest in riding damn fine motorbikes.There is no commitment, no fee, no hassle.
WhatsApp limit the numbers in the group so we have to control who is invited and who isn’t. We will always give priority to fully paid-up members of Manchester branch, and then, if we have enough empty spaces, to members of other TOMCC branches, and then, again determined by space, other interested bikers.
You can ONLY become part of the group by being invited.
Once you are a member of the group, you will be able to message other members of the group, so if you fancy an impromptue rideout one afternoon, you can ask everyone “who’s free”,
BUT you will be able to “mute” or “block” other individual members sending messages to you, if you so desire. The Group Admins (Tony, Graham and Kay, at the moment) will always be able to send messages to group members – that’s the whole (and main) purpose of the group.
So: if you want to keep informed about ride-outs and other club events, you will need to have WhatsApp installed.
We will still post details to Facebook and the website, but this means you can all receive the info straight to your pocket.
