The Skatepark Flatland opened in 2008. Whenever the weather permits, the park is widely used. During summer holidays the skatepark runs skateboard workshops for kids.
In the early years the coordination of leaders and participants was rather improvised and accordingly bumpy: jumbles of bits of paper, email, text messages, voice-calls etc.
Since Reto Frey has taken the organization of the Summer School Program into own hands, all communication is done by text messages, using SMSBLASTER web edition in combination with an ASPSMS Global Two-Way Number.
As main instrument of communication, the SMSBLASTER.COM web edition is used in combination with a Global Two-Way number (e.g. +41790000000).
The coordinator Reto sends all short messages with this number as originator.
Teachers and kids send short messages to the coordinator Reto exclusively to the Global Two-Way number +41790000000.
All replies of teachers and kids are received in the Two-Way Inbox of the SMSBLASTER.COM web edition. All incoming text messages are additionally forwarded to Reto's assistant Caro by email.
Reto maintains all addresses and mobile phone numbers of teachers and kids in the address book of the SMSBLASTER.COM web edition. Additionally he maintains an address group «teachers».
July 1st, Reto reminds all teachers of briefing for Summer School start next Monday:
