Email Updates

ROC sponsors TWO e-mail lists. One is for announcements, and one is for general “ROC chat”. (For even more ROC chat, check out our new Social Media page!) Please note that as of April 12, 2011 we have changed the list management software and that these instructions and links have changed!

ROC-Announce

The ROC-announce list is used for general announcements (such as launch cancellations due to Lucerne weather conditions) and news. There are typically one or two messages sent to this list by the ROC Board per month.

ROC-Chat

The ROC-chat list is used for general discussion of rocket construction and systems, as well as topics related to the hobby (e.g., space exploration). The ROC-chat list is known for being a great resource for both beginners and experienced flyers. There are typically anywhere from 1 to 5 messages sent to this list per day, though at times (like before a launch) there can be 10 to 20.

To subscribe to ROC-chat, please follow the instructions below.

When your request is confirmed, you may post messages to the list and take part in discussions. Please note that you must post using the email address from which you subscribed. For example, you cannot sign up from your home address and then post from a different work address, unless you sign up both. Any posts from non-list-members are automatically discarded to protect us from junk email (spam).

While we are on the subject, here is a great SPAM information web site: http://www.spamprimer.com/

Helpful Hints

If you do not have access to your e-mail, you can still read messages via the e-mail server web site. Just click on the “Read Online” button above after you have signed up for the list.

If you don’t want to receive that many messages, just click on the “Change Your Settings” link above, enter your email address, and choose the “Turn Digest Mode On” option from the drop down at the bottom. Be sure to click the “Go” button.

Or, if you would prefer to read messages online and only post from your email address, just click on the “Change Your Settings” link above, enter your email address, and choose the “Turn Vacation Mode On” option from the drop down at the bottom. Be sure to click the “Go” button.

If you have two email addresses (e.g., work and home) and want to be able to post to roc-chat from either email address – but only receive email to one address – just click on the “Change Your Settings” link above, enter the email address you do NOT want to receive emails at, and choose the “Turn Vacation Mode On” option from the drop down at the bottom. Be sure to click the “Go” button.
