We got over 400 members on FB. On the forums we got 20 posts. For sharing info on an event FB has become essential. It's a reality. Currently it's possible to hold a successful event without any info here. While I am not a lover of FB either, for communicating info that is immediate and not for historical storage it is the big dog.

Open an account, share info there for the event then delete it. You do yourself a disservice by refusing to join

I agree. Join FaceBook, set your privacy settings, choose your friends carefully, and simply do not post anything you do not want known.

With all the great information about our cars on here and all the information about past events why would you not post the 2019 information here? I hope the people that are setting up this event will please post the information here. I think it would be a disservice to all forum members to not have it on here.

Of course it'll be posted here, who indicated otherwise?

Right now, reading this thread, you know as much as I do, and I'm on the planning group for 2019. As the information is developed, it'll be posted here. I'll post as much here as I know.

The same info will be posted on FB, skyroadster.com, and kappaperformance.com

Please feel free to ask your 2019 questions here also, and we'll do our best to answer them.

I am just describing my experience. We got a few forum members from time to time but many inputs daily on FB.

You know I love this forum for the data content and sharing with all my fellow members, but to connect with the extroverts who show up FB has to be part of the mix.

Can you make it public/open, so non-Facebook users (like me) can see it?

I saw the 2018 one was open.

For 2017 we had a facebook presence along with a webpage and the forums. We had exactly zero facebook signups that didn't go somewhere else first.

What we did get from facebook was a lot of noise, mainly people who wanted to join the group but had no means or intention of attending the meet.

Interesting

Not our experience. But I suspect that both the forums and FB is maturing and undergoing changes.

Clearly FB is a great way to reach out to a lot of people in real time and create a dialog. But all the info there is non-persistent, here today, gone tomorrow. The forums are a great source though after a few years the data gets harder to dig out here too.

Our principal NASSAM 2018 thread here had 310 replies, the majority of which were information posted by our team. FB had ~9,000 replies in basically the same period.

The FB page has ~400 members
This forum currently shows 22 active members.

I LOVE this forum. I put up with the Sky forum. I use kappa performance. I don't love FB but it does serve a useful purpose.
