The RBRR2021 Broadcast Group has been running for a few months now, I've had no complaints and only a little feedback so I'm still thinking it is a useful tool. We've got 167 users on the group so that means a few co-drivers are on there too which is great.
As we get ever closer to the run itself, this Broadcast Group will be invaluable to get in touch with you quickly so I would encourage at least one crew member to join. If you haven't signed up, please send me a personal message here and I will send you the link.
Once again, this is not a group for discussion or for telling friends and family anything, it's a straight RBRR entrant group where the only posts will be from the organising team. So far, we've averaged 1 post a week so, as promised, we're not spamming you with loads of traffic 🙂
To address a couple of points that have been made;
If WhatsApp notifications annoy you, you can turn them off - click on the heading of the group and you'll see some settings including a "mute" option. Messages will still appear, you'll just have to remember to look at them because apart from a visual clue, your phone won't remind you. Full details here https://www.whatsapp.com/
It's not compulsory, if you don't want WhatsApp you will just need to come here to the Forum for your updates. You will run the risk of missing out on breaking news on the run.
Finally, on the subject of this forum, have you tried it on a smartphone yet? Have a go, it's really rather impressive!
