    So, how do I get Georgia riders to come to the Georgia chapter to get the information? There's not much activity on the state chapters anymore unless you give them a reason to come and take a look.

    When anything is posted in the state chapters the little speech bubble turns blue. That indicates there there is a new post or thread in that chapter. The state chapter sections were created so people would not have to weed through pages of state topics that do not effect them. The General section is a DUMPING ground for all threads. People think it gets more exposure. Some get moved and some get deleted. Plus doing it this way makes finding things SOOOO much easier. I mean imagine if everyone posted every thread in the general section or there was just a general section. It would take you FOREVER to find some threads.

    And spread the word to them that there are state sections. Try things like
    Create an email list for your local people
    Create a phone tree

    I do understand where you're coming from and agree there are other modes of communications with Georgia riders. That said, the last time this subject came up was on a hijacked thread on the General board. So, i had hoped with this post I would lure Georgia riders to the Georgia board. That is the reason I chose the subject "Calling All Georgia Riders" and just put in a link to the Georgia board with no discussion. I wish it could have gotten some exposure over the weekend, then fade away or be deleted. Right now as it stands, the first post is just a link to the second post and serves no real purpose by being on the same board. Thanks for your support and help.

    I saw your thread immediately and I don't check the Georgia board.
    I think most of us start out by clicking on "New Post" which will take us to any new post since our last visit.
    However, I agree with the BM regarding developing a list of members who you call the "Georgia 9 Riders" and PM, email, text them. I had the same problem on another bike forum trying to use the local board to communicate. Seems that other riders didn't frequent the forum enough to get the message in time for the ride.

    I have to take "baby bump" pics some time over the weekend and I have to work 11AM - 3AM. But I'm in if I can swing it! :bike::dash::+1:
