Maybe using the discussion board instead of the mailing list would be a better option for impromptu trips then (with maybe one mail to the group notifying of the discussion if you really want) b/c it is easier for people to control which discussions they want to follow.  I don't want to turn off my mailing list notification b/c then I won't get anything, but if that is the only way to keep from getting everything then I might have to.

I'd address the "response goes to all" issue with the group organizers.  By default it seems the thing is set to respond to everyone instead of to the original poster.  I don't like it either because I'd rather it default to the sender and then have to explicitly make it go to the whole group with a "reply to all".  Perhaps the organizers have control over that?

re - making it an event.  It's far too impromtu to "suggest" an outing and then hope an organizer promotes it to a meetup, and then get interest from the group...all within a 24hour window.

How do I get off this thread?  Can't you make this an event and email through there so every message is not going to the entire group?
Thanks,
Hollis

unfortunately I do, as I work til 9 or sometimes 8 PM M-THursday.
Off Fridays Sats and Suns. Plus I live in Churchill near Monroeville so the drive to Moraine for me is 1 hour 45 minutes or so.
But would LOVE to paddle weekends. (This Sat going to be a spectator at a ballroom dance competition (my other passion).
So can not do Wed.
I will keep watching for opportunities.

Hi Bob and Mary Jo and anyone else,
I went to Ohio this past weekend so could not do the marsh, hope you enjoyed it, and would love to set a time to do in the future. Sunday would be a great day to do Moraine. I cannot do Friday.

I would like to do Moraine Rob and I have never been there. I am off Friday and I work this coming weekend. Maybe you can get a group this Friday?

Hi Susan.

Can you handle reentry on the water if you dump?  That would be my main concern: not being near shore and needing to get back in the boat if something unforeseen happens.  I'd love to say yes, but I'd be more comfortable paddling with you some place more public like Moraine first.  This is an exploratory paddle so I'm not confident we could help you out on the water if something happened.

If you'd like to paddle at Moraine with me I'd love the company...and I'll help with loading the boat and getting you into and out of it.

Kind regards,
