SBTUG on Facebook

Perhaps you’ve avoided Facebook so far (it can be a time waster, that’s for sure).

However, if you are on Facebook I invite you to join the SBTUG group (and also the SBTUG Events).

The benefits of the Facebook group are that we can easily stay in touch, post comments and notices, as well as sign up for events and RSVP to events (which will help me with catering).

To join simply visit this page (you’ll need to log in for all these links) and click on the ‘Join Group’ link:

I’ve got some great SBTUG T-Shirts, so as a special incentive to join me on Facebook, I’ll be giving a T-Shirt to the first 10 people who join the SBTUG group on Facebook.

(You’ll need to attend an SBTUG meeting to pick up your prize.)

Looking forward to seeing you this coming Wednesday 29 August 2007 at 6:30pm.
