Hello fellow Picklers, this is Mike Lang. I created and maintain the club web site. As we embark on a new year, the club's Board of Directors is looking to streamline our communication with members. I'd like to explore this blog as an option for sending announcements to all members because it is much easier than email where we need to manage large mailing lists and fight spam filters. However, I'm not sure how many people will actually receive and read messages we publish in this blog. So, to help assess the effectiveness of this communication, please like this post by clicking on the 'heart' icon in the lower right corner.
