Hi Patrick - I think you're the club webmaster. If so - nice job! I've done similar stuff and know how much work it is.
One issue I've run into: I don't have access to change my notifications. I'm guessing that's true for eveyone who has basic access to the site. And most sites want to allow all members to do this.
I did disable the notifications once I found out about that. Will revisit at a later time.

Hi, This is not exactly a topic for this thread, so my apologies in advance, but I am a brand new memeber with a couple of questions and I can't figure out who to email with my questions. So, I'm hoping that someone will read this who can answer my questions, or can direct me to the correct person to email with my questions. Here are my questions.....will there be information provided ahead of time to member on the topic of specific saturday night club meetings? I won't be able to make all of them, so knowing the topic of the meetings will help determine which I wan't to attend. Also, is the age range in for field trips flexible? And, what are the age range perameters based on? Thanks in advance for you help! Best, allison Duffy
Hey, Allison! I can field the Field trip question. (see what I did there?) ;) When I arrange the field trips, most of the time I'm working with mine owners/operators with their own established rules, including age limits, and those are what I pass on to my diggers. They have arrived at those decisions based upon years of experience in what works best for them, (or doesn't work), in terms of liability, and manageability. Out of appreciation and respect, and in order to maintain access for us, I strive to honor their every sensibility. They don't have to welcome us as they do. On the few occasions when I'm not working with an established set of rules, I run a recon mission to assess current hazards, and make the best recommendations I can, though in those cases the discretion of the parent becomes the deciding factor. If you have any other questions, you should be able to email me through the website. I'm under Field Trip Director, or some such. I'm already at work trying to line up the more 'iffy' places first. Expect another full season, though we can't count on drought weather again, and will have to trust to luck we can get them all in.
