Still seems to be playing a strong part of it all. When you think that both the TITM and Frenz lists have a few thousand members, and the club has 13,500+ it shows a lot of people still do not use the internet.
I have to admit it's a two edged sword for myself at the office. Some days we get 700+ emails....it's a lot of extra work, BUT it means an instant reply and we try and email everyone back....so the info can flow quicker.
I like the idea of the band members like Neil etc having handwritten letters in the newsletters, always good to have that personal touch.
