Dear CMC Members & Friends,

As you may have noticed, the website was down for a couple weeks. It is back up and we're pushing through a few more updates. Rather than keep the site down, it is up and functional - you can view your profile, see trips, and find other information about the club. We do use Facebook as another medium to reach members and friends. Our website remains our primary online source for club information, but as with any organization, our online presence would not be complete without a Facebook page. Email has been the primary way to contact the club for some time now. Without an outside phone answering service or single individual fielding all calls, email communication is critical to the club. If you attempted to email the club within the past few weeks, please resend your email. While our site was down, we were unable to retrieve club emails, and they were being bounced back to senders.

Remember to contact individual trip leaders for specific trip information. Using club email addresses may delay the response time (i.e., start time, meeting place, weather updates, etc.). Although some trip leaders have access to club email, not all trip leaders do, so it is important to contact the trip leader directly.

Beyond all this technical chatter, we have had a busy summer, and trips led almost weekly! If you haven't been on a CMC trip yet, I hope you will join us soon. There are a couple trips coming up in October that provide a great way to meet other CMC members: Fall Activities Day and Walk the Wachusett. A venue for F.A.D. has not been determined - suggestions welcome!

Also, stay tuned for information on this year's Annual Meeting. A potential new time and place may be chosen, but sure to attract even more people!

Sincerely,

Josiah Richards Co-Chair
