Please be aware of what the initials look like. For example if we abbreviated
the SignWriting Club to SWC then you would have exactly the same initials as
the SayWhat Club to which hundreds and hundreds of hard of hearing people
worldwide belong to (myself included). And that could lead to a lot of
confusion--not the least of which when doing a web search.
That said--I like having the word club in there too. But let's be sure our
abbreviation is unique and not easily confused with other HOH groups.

Let's have more web sites. First, only one web-site gives the impression that
it is a "one-man" effort. Having several websites shows that the idea is
getting popular. Second, there is so much information becoming available on
current website that it is time for a second website so a new browser doesn't
get lost just hunting for information there.
