I understand Cam... I tried sending an e-mail directly to the webmaster at "" but it bounced. We had a good close-knit group of people going on the Newport forum until the change was made to eliminate e-mail names from the headers ~6 months ago. I think spam filtering caused many of the users to stop receiving emails and then the whole group went into a slow decline. At that point we had developed a "sidebar" email list so that everyone who wanted to remain in contact would at least have a somewhat current email address of those who wished to keep in touch (or send photos). I have sent out an email informing those people who I have on email the distribution list but I think there are many others who I don't have email addresses for.

We are kicking around ideas for keeping the Newport email list alive; either we will keep sending e-mails via distribution list, switch over to Yahoo Groups, post on sailnet in the Newport forum, or a combination of all three.

Maybe sailnet could point those people we have lost by sending out a broadcast across all email groups letting them know where they can find their "new and improved" forum.
