Google Groups:

The club uses Google Groups to send email to club members. You do NOT need to have a Google or Gmail account to receive this email. This email includes messages from the club officers, messages from other club members and the monthly club newsletter. When you join the club, your email address is normally added to the distribution list for this Group. If you do not wish to receive this email from the club, just click on "Unsubscribe" at the bottom of an email message from the group and your email address will be removed.

If you do not want to be added to this Google Group for some reason but would like to receive the monthly club newsletter by email, please notify The Treasurer. Be sure to include your full name and the email address you wish to use. The newsletters are also available on this web site.

To be added to the Google Groups email list, please send your full name and email address to The Treasurer.

Email Problems

When sending a new or reply email to the group, the reply-to email address that you are using must match the your email address as listed within the group. This protects the group from receiving unwanted email from 3rd parties (spammers) who are not members of the group. If these 2 email addresses do not match, your email to the group will be rejected.

When you receive an email from a group member and then wish to reply to only that member, please use Reply, not Reply All when you send the message. If you use Reply All, then your reply will also go to the club's email address, pikespeakbmwriders@googlegroups.com, and all members of the club will receive a copy of your email message. Many club members are very sensitive about receiving unwanted email of this type and it causes dissatisfaction with both you as a club member and the club in general.
