I have just started working on a new website for my club and passion, an adventure racing website. I sat down the other day with the event organizers and worked out a plan on what functionality the website should have (listed below).
1. Information of events
Google Calendar (would like to integrate the 4 main clubs in Cairns - MTB, Running, Triathlon)
Four main races of the year
2. Online Entry & contact database
We are currently using ACT (a contact database) to keep people informed and would like something online.
3. A way for members/non-members to communicate with each other.
buddypress.org (WordPress MU)
Another google calendar for our own outings.
Please through around a few suggestions about databases subscriptions and plugins to help me make the organizers jobs easier and create a community. I plan on using the Busy Bee theme. Here's the old site http://www.adventureracing.com.au
Thanks for your time and effort Muzza!
