I'm still around, but it's all I can do to handle the email Support and project time to play or keep tabs on all the forums... back in the day when I was single and only worked one job I would spend several hours a week on admin and probably 20+ on game play... those days are long gone...

...or reversed ... mostly long gone, though...

Rich --- that happens to be a different club ... do we get to carry cards? :D

As Andy said some of us "grey beards" are still around and fighting quite a few battles. But as the grim reaper gets nearer we would rather "do" than "talk". I am still active in three Clubs and am usually up for a rumble especially if I can register in all three Clubs : :mrgreen:

With all of the game design I now do I am doing well to be in 1-2 battles at a time. Yes, life used to be cavalier when I would be in something like 30-45 games at a time in four clubs!

I would like to add that there is also another problem. Unless members log in to the forum on a regular basis posts can be missed due to real life issues, age and other issues.

Another problem is contact, a newsletter which is a great idea but how to communicate that to the members:
Private Mail on the club website, do members even acknowledge private emails or more to the point, know they have been sent especially if they don't log in to the forum that often.
Personal emails, and I know this can be an issue, and that many members do not want there inbox bombarded with messages from the club so that contact really needs to be at a minimum.

It is very difficult to get a balance of keeping track of members, and getting across various information, without upsetting members. So with these barriers how do we contact members on a regular occasion and get a reply back? This is something which I think does need to be addressed then members may reply if they know what's going on. Its a fine line and one I'd like to address especially as the last muster in the LGA was somewhat poor.

I like many others have had real life issues and I have neglected the club mainly due to time as I wanted to concentrate on my health as well as of late various projects that keep me physically and mentally active.

Would members of the LGA be willing to complete a very small survey on how they prefer to be contacted and how often as well as a few other questions.

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
