Please feel free to comment anytime and let us know what you think.

Some of you are on it already, many of you will miss the “boat” entirely, but most all have at least heard of it. Twitter. I have mentioned it before and will continue to do so for a while. Email is “dead” and updating a “hotline” is time consuming and frustrating too.

This is a fun and interactive medium that may be worth your time at least to check out. You can also post updates to your website and have parents check the website on when you will be returning, etc. from an event.

Also check out for more about what twitter is.
