Abaco Forum Newsgroup

Latest News From The Abaconian and Rolling Harbour Abaco

Is this an Abaco forum / newsgroup in the conventional sense? Not quite. We tried providing a classic forum at one point, then experimented with Twitter, but had little success. Running an interactive forum requires time, effort, and most of all, moderators -- something we did not have the resources for. If you are looking for a forum / message board dedicated to the Abacos, we suggest heading over to Abaco's Community Message Board or Abaco Forum.

Beyond a classic forum, we provide a stream of some of the news outlets we watch when it comes to Abaco. Our first choice is an Abaco Facebook Page hosted by the Abaconian which has been Abaco's newspaper of record since 1993.

Following the Abaconian's Facebook page is the news feed for Rolling Harbour Abaco hosted by The Delphi Club. This is an informative and enjoyable blog that covers the birds and other wildlife on Abaco Island.
