I have a lot of new features planned to introduce but it will rely on you using your email as the primary communication tool. I am going to spend a lot of time repairngs our email addressses and will ask for your patience and cooperation in confirming our communication links.
I tried last month but had a response from only 10 % of our members. We've got to get that up to 60% to be effective and i'm looking to get 85% + It will take some time to get there so I need to ask fpr your patience and cooperation. I found several impediments to sending and receiving communications which will soon be fixed. Some are at my end and one or two are at your end. Lets try working together and see what we can accomplish. Your Webmaster - Jack Evans
