So, basically we have a club e-mail list....  but it's not used
by the club officers or by the club members to discuss any club
business?  Is that about it?

One of the purposes of having an e-mail list is that there is an
archive available for members should they wish to refer to the
e-mails later on.

Sorry, but in this day-and-age, to have to send a message to
someone and request "please send this to the club," well, that's
just not very efficient and it damn sure isn't "communicating,"
which is what I thought that was all about.

I think usage of the club e-mail list, and the manner in which
the officers and others communicate with the club, needs to be
discussed at the next monthly club meeting.
