Fellow Sea Scouters:
Fear not. We will not combine the Seascout-Net list with te Venturing
list. Yes, we are a part of Venturing. Yes, we want to have a
cooperative, positive with the rest of Venturing. Yes, there are issues
specific to Sea Scouting that are best discussed among ourselves. As a
former supervisor of mine was fond of saying, this is a 'win-win'
Keep the faith. We'll be here for you.

I suspect this posting may be unnecessary, but ...
Please, please, PLEASE - DO NOT combine this list into the Venture list.
Keep them separate.
(1) I've subscribed to the Venture list and have been monitoring it since
its inception. It is (usually) a worthwhile list to follow. But the
volume of messages has grown to the point where JUNO discards the bottom
part of the digest. Apparently JUNO sends a "mail rejected" response back
to the list when this happens, and after happening two days in a row with
Scouts-L, the Scouts-L server unsubscribed me. While I'd prefer not to
lose my subscription to the Venture list, I could live without it, as long
as I don't lose out on Sea Scout info in the process.
(2) There are may people watching the Venture list that have no interest in
Sea Scouting. Why clutter up that list with info many people have no
(3) While *I* might find it useful to keep an eye on the Venture list, I
suspect there are many Sea Scouts and Sea Scout leaders who would object to
wading through the mass of Venturing stuff to fine the few nuggets of
Sea Scouting gold. Why would we even consider burrying ourselves in that
My $.02 worth ...
