If you are at all interested in the club you should join our announcements mailing list and find us on Facebook, even if you haven't decided whether you want to join the club. They're both an excellent way of keeping in touch with what's going on.
Don't forget the Facebook group! If you only subscribe to the announcements you will only hear about official club trips and events, and will miss out on things like parties and informal walking/climbing trips organised by members, as well as your own opportunity for asking questions, etc.
Initially, the announcement e-mails may be flagged as spam by some providers. Please check your Junk/Spam folder and if necessary mark the e-mail as Safe/Not Junk/Not Spam, and you should receive the announcements properly in future.
To change your e-mail subscription options for the Announcement group use the link below. You'll need to sign in with your Google account.
There are also instructions for changing your subscription / unsubscribing appended to the bottom of every e-mail you receive from the mailing list.
At the time of writing (06/11/12) you need to enable notifications as follows:
Everything on the Facebook page can be viewed without creating an account, and the website events calendar will be kept up to date as much as possible with social activities as well as the weekly meets. Make sure you're subscribed to the DURC Announce mailing list and come along to the weekly pub meeting too to keep in touch with what's going on.
We use a Facebook group for discussion because, in the past, even when we had an email-friendly chat forum the vast majority of club members would post on the Facebook page instead, which isn't suitable for reaching large numbers of people consistently. The group has since proven to be much more active than the old forum. If you don't wish to use Facebook and have any ideas for improving the situation please contact the Committee.
If you're confused/stuck after reading these instructions have a look at the Google Groups Help. If you're still stuck then contact the committee - don't forget to include your full name and e-mail address and give as much info as you can about your problem.
