    Reaching out to Texas Hammock Hangers

    Is there a listserv for Texas Hammock Hangers? I donít have a FB account, but would like to know about upcoming hangouts in Texas.


    Regards,

    I think the THH FB owners have their own hammock website have you searched for that? I assume they keep them both uptodate.
    I don't visit either these days so I don't know for sure.

    Thank you, OutandBack. I didn’t realize THH FB owners had their own website. After seeing mention of the group on this sub-forum, I did a quick and lazy google search and only noticed the FB page. As of now, it looks like their non-FB late is no longer hosted and they only maintain the FB page.

    Hopefully I will stumble across some Texas Hangouts on this forum. As someone new to hammocks, I thought it would be a great opportunity to learn from more experience Hangers at some of the hangouts. To date, I’ve just been doing solo and family hangs.


    Regards,

    It was so popular it crashed!

    You need a FB account to join. If you don't join you basicly see the banner and nothing else.

    Then I suppose that you could join Facebook, set all parameters to "Private" and never post on your page. Configuring the view privileges to only family and friends with no "family and friends" might get it done.

    I remember party-lines for telephone service, not much privacy there.

    I tried to go that route to join my astronomy club’s FB group (HAS for any Houston-area sky watchers) as that was where they pushed out event notices. I made a lot of effort to keep private, but FB managed to pull my contacts from my mobile device and broadcast to my friends and family that I was on the platform, but “private”...which opened a hole can of worms

    I’ve since opted to avoid it entirely and receive club announcements via our listserv. But thank you for the suggestion, Joe. I see you’re just a little up the road from me - San Antonio. Howdy from Houston.

    Your story is not the first I have heard of this kind of stuff happening with FaceBook. There are reasons the Zuck has been called before congress more than once.
    I don't keep track of every TX hang but I would bet all the bigs are posted right here on HammockForums.
