MN-hamfest-reminder -- Reminders for hamfests in MN or vicinity.


About MN-hamfest-reminder
English (USA)

This email list is intended to send announcements and reminders of hamfests that will be held within Minnesota or near its borders. All posts sent to the list will be reviewed and approved before being sent to the list subscribers. You need to be subscribed to the list to receive these reminders. You do not need to be subscribed to submit an announcement or reminder for publication.

The largest cost involved in running a hamfest is usually the advertising. The purpose of this list is to help hamfest organizers to reach more individuals who are specifically interested in attending hamfests and to do it at no cost to the event. Announcements and reminders submitted to the list will be sent as plain text. Attachments and HTML formatting will be stripped. It is recommended that just a text description of the event be included in the announcement, along with a link to a web page where the full information for the event can be found. Only people interested in the event will need to visit the web page and download any documents. Please limit the frequency of individual hamfest reminders to once within 3 months of the event and once within the final month before the event. It is recommended that web site addresses be enclosed in < > brackets and placed on a new line of the message, similar to:

This is an "opt-in" list. That means you must explicitly approve being added to the list and the messages should not be considered to be SPAM. When you join the list you will receive a "welcome" email that includes your account information and a random password. Please print and save this email. You may use this password at any time to change your account information or remove yourself from this list. You may also unsubscribe at any time by using the link at the bottom of every MN-hamfest-reminder email or the "Unsubscribe or edit options" button at the bottom of this page.

This is intended to be a low volume, low maintenance list. You will NOT receive monthly subscription reminders. If your email bounces 3 times in 10 days the account will be disabled. If your email address is changing, you should subscribe again using the new email address and then unsubscribe the old address. Or you may use your saved password information to log into the account and make any changes you require.

There may still be conditions when the automatic unsubscribe doesn't work and the account password has been lost. In that case the list administrators can manually delete your account, but only if an email from the MN-hamfest-reminder list, complete with all headers, is forwarded to the administrators. To make things easier in that instance, it is recommended that you always include your full name and call sign in the "Your name" field below.

We also encourage clubs and other organizations to subscribe a club email address to this list if they wish their members to receive these reminders. If you subscribe the club secretary or a club email address to this list, the reminders from this list can be approved and forwarded to the club membership or used in a newsletter. If you go further and subscribe this list to your club email list, the MN-hamfest-reminders would automatically be forwarded to your membership. In that case you should BE SURE to disable email from your club remailer to the MN-hamfest-reminder remailer. If you do not, your club email will be posted to this remailer and our moderators and list administrators will remove the offending email address from our subscriber list.
