Eww seriously if FB is used as the primary, secondary or even tertiary
communication method you can count me out.

As for mailing lists, if people think there is a need for change
https://onlinegroups.net could be an alternative.  Might need to convince
them that WellyLug would be a good thing to sponsor in terms of giving a
free site.

Not immediately sure of an alternative to FB for events organisation, but
there has to be something that isn't going to steal our souls or our first
