As of October 2011 Rugby Pagans will be publishing an email newsletter, called The Talking Stick, based on the contributions of members. The spirit of the letter is based on everyone having a say through it, should they want to - hence the name.
If you would be interested in a receiving a copy of The Talking Stick please enter the email address you would like to receive the letter at on the Newsletter section of www.rugbypagans.org.uk
If you would like to contribute the deadline for inclusion in any month's issue is 25th of the month before.
If events of interest arrive after the deadline we may consider doing a mid-month update.
A limited number of physical copies of The Talking Stick will be available at the first moot after publication.

Firstly let me start by thanking everyone that has subscribed to our mailing list.
Unfortunately I am having some teething problems with the mailing list system which have prevented me sending out the first issue of our new newsletter The Talking Stick.
Before offering the opportunity to sign up I tested sending 3 emails to a number of my email accounts using this list. All tests were successful.
Upon trying to send the genuine email to you all it became apparent that these emails were not sending correctly (unless anyone can advise me differently). I have contacted Topica's support department in this regard and await their response.
Should this take more than a couple of days to resolve I will send this month's issue out to the subscribed email accounts individually, and hope that the issue is resolved in time for the November issue.
Thanks again for going to the time and trouble of subscribing.

The mailing list system we are using, for the newsletter The Talking Stick, has changed.
The previous mailing list was difficult to sign up for, and was effectively not usable for what we want to do - It actually wouldn't let us send the newsletter as we tried to yesterday!
The new system is so simple to sign up for and gives us all the options we need, and a few brilliant ones we never knew we needed.
The first issue will be sent via the new system on Saturday 8th October at 9am.
We thank subscribers and potential subscribers for your patience, and apologise for the incovenience. I hope that everyone that signed up for the old system. amd the rest who didn't, will sign up for the new system and that you will find The Talking Stick informative and enjoyable.
