ARGG – New Procedure for Pairings Broadcast

We use Mailchimp as our mailing list service and have been using them for about 12 years. They are very professional, and reliable. Due to ever tougher spamming laws its getting harder to set up Pairing Coordinators to use them directly as they have in the past, but I think I’ve found a new process that will work. It will look a little different for you though.
I have set up Mailchimp to scan our website ( ) every evening at 8pm. If there is anything new posted on our site, Mailchimp will send it out in an email that evening. You may have seen some of these in the past, especially when Harry posts the handicaps.
Our new procedure therefore is to have the Pairing Coordinator post the pairings (and other communications) on the website (they will have a very simple way of doing that)…if they post before 8pm their email will go out that same day. If they post after 8pm, their email will go out in the next cycle.
Your emails therefore will always be at 8pm….I (Chuck) will continue acting as an emergency back up for those times when there are glitches. We’ll try this for a while.
By the way, THIS email was written at 8:54 pm on Tuesday night…you should get this tomorrow night at 8pm.
