PCC Mailing List Manager
are reading this page expecting to be able to send email,
you are on the wrong page. To send an email note, you need
here to send email from our contacts web page. However
if you wish to join or leave our mailing lists, keep on reading!
To keep in touch with what is happening at the Potomac Curling
Club, join our mailing lists. We promise the lists are
only used to discuss curling or PCC related issues. We will not
sell or give your email address to anyone else. We do have
a privacy statement that most people ignore. There is a
link to it at at the bottom of almost every page. Depending upon
your level of enthusiasm, and the boss' level of tolerance,
you can subscribe multiple times, such as one for your home
address, and once at work.
Replies. Once you have subscribed to a mail list you may be able to reply or "reply all". Please refrain from that particular option because your reply goes to everybody on the list. Of course some times it will be appropriate, but if you are asking for specific information or intending to communicate directly with whomever sent the original posting, the rest of the curling world may not feel a need to read your "sorry I can't come, good luck without me " reply.
CCs. Our mail list server is picky. It wants to be the only recipient. When you post to spares etc., and also to other people at the same time, it ends up in the webmaster in-box awaiting approval saying that your post has "too many recipients". 99% of the time the webmaster will go ahead and approve it (He's the list owner by default) but it does add a delay to your posting. A suggestion is to just mail to the list, then go find what you just sent in the "sent mail" folder and then forward that to your friends, Romans, and countrymen. Just a word to the (now) wise(r).
Announcements - This list is used to send out official (and unofficial) Potomac Curling Club announcements.
It is NOT a spares list.
Spares - This list is used to request spares (substitute) in the rare instance where you absolutely have to be somewhere besides curling.
Chat - This list is for non-curling related topics of interest.
Golf - We're more than a curling club! Many of our members play golf during the summer, and this is a list designed for curlers trying to complete a four-some etc.
Bob Pursell is in charge of this particular list.
Youthcurling - Managed by Emily Aubin, our youth curling coordinator. It's all related to our younger curlers.
We do have three other mail lists that are "closed", that is they are there, but you can not subscribe to them. You must be added by the webmaster. These three lists are:
pccboard - our board of directors.
league_coordinators - seems self explanatory
pcc_members - our "official" mailing list, one per member, used sparingly and moderated by our board.
Joining or Leaving our lists? The list manager selected by our hosting company is "Mailman". To join and/or leave these mail lists, point your web browser to any of the following links and follow the hosting company specified directions:
Lost your password? Or Never received it? The webmaster does not know it. Even worse, he cannot see it or change it. Call him helpless if you will, but this is a self-service environment, and security dictates that the webmaster won't know it. You can get it (or get it back) by visiting any of the links above and following the webhosting company provided directions.
Step by Step Instructions, almost. The process to change your email address is to unsubscribe from the old address, and subscribe with the new one. The hosting company controls this process, the webmaster does not. As of September, 2010, these are the blow-by-blow instructions. They may be changed by the hosting company at any time.

- You have now left anything that I can control, and are looking at a page supplied by Bluehost.com, our hosting company.

In both cases, leaving or joining, you will receive an email message from
the mail list manager software (not me). YOU MUST FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS

to ensure your privacy.
Several ISPs, like Yahoo.com,

spam mailbox, or maybe they will never even get to you. Unfortunately
with the increasing problem of spam, there's not much we
