    I know owl, was the only other guys to man up and voice that the rain may affect his attendance.

    I could tell everybody to ensure you give me your cell number and I could start a group text for it... does anybody know of a website that will allow control of a group text, where people could sign up for the group??

    What say you?

    Yeah I get that... I'm just pointing out the difference between a bike trip and a weekly ride

    Here's my take...

    1. We won't cancel for FORECAST
    2. We WILL cancel for ALERTS (Severe weather WARNINGS or WATCHES)

    Proposed addition

    3. We WILL cancel if it is ACTUALLY RAINING 1 hour in advance of the agreed meeting time.


    That makes 3 simple guidelines/rules for TWC. Then we have to figure out the best way to implement that "last minute" cancel. If that means just posting it here or some texting website the rider can join in for TWC ALERT.

    That's the way to do it El Cap-e-tan. That's how I ride - walk outside, is it raining?, no?, let's ride.

    I'm with ya... with the exception of severe weather alerts. Also, it could be raining at your house and not mine. So somebody has to make the call, and I fear that will end up on me.


    Then as I said, notifying everybody... there are some apps/websites

    https://groupme.com/
    http://kik.com/
    http://www.eventbrite.com/features/

    And of course, in the TWC thread for that week!!
