The CSEVC has been operating for about 5 years now, both with our CSEVC.COM blog and a Facebook page. In that time we’ve had many new members! As the Administrator of our club, I’ve noticed that our records may be out of date for many of you, and that many of you may not be receiving our electronic newsletters.
In order to protect your email address when contacting you, we use a BCC: (blind carbon copy) feature of most email systems. This means that other recipients cannot see your email address. Unfortunately, this also means that our message may be interpreted as spam when you receive it. One of the things some email systems look for is a large number of BCC: recipients; if they see it, they categorize the message as spam and send the message to a folder on your computer. Unless you regularly check your spam folder you may never get our messages. I am, this time only, using your direct email address for just a few addresses at a time.
In return for making sure you want our information and can receive it, I’d like to ask a few things:
1) Please check your spam folder and see if any of our past broadcast messages have been sent there. If so, please “whitelist” my email address of WHitchings DOT tablet AT gmail DOT com so that our future messages aren’t classified as spam.
2) Please decide if you want our information sent to you. If you have no use for our newsletter, or simply don’t participate in the club anymore, do nothing. I will be removing non-responders to this message by February 1, 2020 (see below).
3) Please review your listing on our club’s membership page ( http://www.csevc.com/p/member-listing_10.html ) for accuracy. Several of our members are listed as “Model xxx ordered”. Contact me directly with any updates to your listing.
Note that unless I hear from you by February 1, 2020, I will remove your listing from our rolls, both club member and newsletter. I know this sounds harsh, but the growing amount of time required to make and send electronic emails certainly is worth knowing that our members both want, and receive, our communications.
Thanks for everything, 2020 looks to be a busy year! The club may be looking at some short, perhaps overnight, trips next year (please suggest some locations). Potential destinations are Moab (Arches National Park), club member’s solar setups, Yosemite National Park, etc.
