Welcome to Our New Website

We are thrilled to announce the launch of our newly redesigned website as off today! This update marks a significant milestone in our journey to enhance your experience and improve how we manage our club activities.

What’s New?

  • Main Site (www.twbc.org): Hosted on Google Sites, this is your go-to for club documents, by-laws, history, and essential announcements.
  • Blog (news.twbc.org): Catch up on the latest club news, articles, and updates in a dynamic new format powered by Google Blogger.
  • Membership Portal (portal.twbc.org): Dedicated to membership management and event registration, seamlessly integrated with Google Calendar and Google Forms for ease of use.

Easy Navigation Between Sites

Each site features a top menu that includes:
  • Home: Redirects to our main website at www.twbc.org
  • Blog: Takes you to our latest articles and news at news.twbc.org
  • Portal: Access our Membership Portal at portal.twbc.org
This structured setup ensures you can effortlessly switch between our platforms, whether you're updating your membership details, signing up for events, or catching up on club news.

Why the Change?

  • Cost Efficiency: Our new setup greatly reduces operational costs, allowing more funds to be reinvested into the club.
  • Ease of Management: The integration of Google's robust platforms makes managing our content and events simpler and more efficient.
  • Better Integration: Improved integration with Google’s tools means better access to information and streamlined communication.

Upcoming Changes

  • We are in the process of deprecating the Events Booking package to fully migrate event registration and scheduling to Google Calendar and Google Forms, making event participation smoother and more transparent.


Your feedback is invaluable to us. If you have any thoughts or suggestions about the new website, please don’t hesitate to reach out via email at [email protected].


A special thank you to Jim Steel, whose tireless efforts made this transition smooth and improved our Joomla setup during the process.

Please explore the new sites and familiarize yourself with their features. Your ongoing support and enthusiasm for TWBC mean the world to us, and we look forward to making more exciting developments in the future.

Warm regards,
Ray Finch
