I need to defer this to those on this list who are much more  
knowledgeable than me. However, just being on the list and responding  
is what I believe 'membership' is. If someone, five months from now,  
sees a posting online, has never received or responded to a BayPIGgies  
email, but yet emails me personally and says "I want the  
subscription," I'll have to politely decline.

As far as I understand it, hearing this communication and responding  
is all the 'membership' that we need. Also, I've never heard of  
anything more 'official' or of any fees. I may have used poor language  
and confused the issue by using words like 'official.'  I'm sorry and  
hope it doesn't add concern or confusion.

Gheni Abla, I've added you to the list who get the subscription  
(although you still need to go to their website per the earlier  
emails, if you haven't already).

Warmest Regards,

Glen Jarvis
