Fellow Tuggers

We are trying to complete an update of our membership email list. Over the last few months, we have sent out bulk emails to all our members; each time, many dozens of addresses currently on file have bounced back as undeliverable (the list IS getting shorter). To ensure that we can get information to you through emails, we need to have accurate addresses. I would ask that all members who have not received an email from the Tug Association in the last 6 months to please go to the About section, click on Contacts, click on Membership, and send me your current email address. Thank you.
