For a while I've wanted to set something up on the web that helps with communicating with the folks in the ski club I'm an organizer for. For the most part it is an after school ski/lesson program. This will be the fourth year running it and each year I find myself sending out very similar information to the club. I tend to re-sue the same emails with way too much information in them. Some of the parents love them; some couldn't care less. I'm OK with that but want to make sure that all the parents get the information that they need. Keep in mind that much of the communication is to the parents of a child in the club and there is a fairly good chance the parents don't ski and/or aren't familiar with the New England climate; like my wife is from Southern CA and says it's chilly when it's below 65 deg F . It isn't considered chilly in NH until it gets closer to freezing and "cold" doesn't happen until you hit single digits .
What I would like to do is have a web page or something with all the information there and I can easily keep folks updated no matter where I am. I'm more of a home page type of guy but I'm thinking that Facebook might actually be the way to go. I want to have a resource for the parents on what to expect at the mountain, how to dress for the cold weather and links to information; where to get good deals on gear and other sites that are ski related (i.e. epicski). It would be best if the info isn't buried in an email with gobs of other information.
So I'm asking folks here that might have experience with Facebook and ski clubs or home pages and ski clubs what the pros and cons are.
I do have the resources to have either set up for free. Well not really free if you consider I'm paying for his college education
