Hey everyone! This week, we’re honoring the dwindling days of football season by sharing this great letter we received from a youth football and cheer league in Northern California. Take a quick break from watching Friday Night Lights reruns and give it a look:
I have been searching for a group texting program to quickly get information to the 11 members of the Board of Directors of our youth football and cheer league. Our directors are scattered all over Northern California.
I tried to get everyone on board with Twitter, but most had no desire to sign up. However, everyone did have texting and a cell phone. Setting up GroupMe took just seconds, and before too long the members were having a blast using it. Sort of like a message board by cell phone.
I got so excited that I created another group for high school score updates. I announce our local high school football games, and many of us, including our fans, like to know the scores from other teams in the North State. So I made a group of friends from each of the area high schools who attend their local games.
Before, I used to be the texting “hub”. Scores would be sent to me from everyone, and then I would have to forward them by text to everyone. I could never enjoy my game because I was busy forwarding and texting. GroupMe was perfect for us!!! All I have to do is text my update, and that’s it. Your system takes care of the rest, and everyone in the group is getting consistent updates.
Thank you very much GroupMe!!!
