Happy holidays RRLug!

I just wanted to remind everyone that Yahoo is deprecating their Groups email service on December 15th. Its a sad turn of affairs since we have used this service for the last 22 years.

Last week I sent out invitations to everyone that was on the Yahoo list to a newer service called If you are interested in continuing to receive emails from the group for notification or participation you will need to accept that invitation. If you didn’t see it and are interested please check your Spam folder in your email client. If you are interested and you didn’t get the invite and its not in the spam folder please subscribe to the list by sending email to the following address:

Note: for those of you that have already accepted the invitation you will get this email twice since I’m also in the process of setting up the RSS to email connectivity. This should drop back down to one email per notification in the next week when Yahoo stops the list.
