Well, you've already got a domain name.  

If anybody with our club has the inclination and knowledge to
set up/install a Linux or BSD server on surplus PC hardware (I'm
talking the sort that should be available for a couple hundred
US dollars or less), that's sufficient to install Mailman.

All you need from your web hosting provider is an email forward
to the list's posting address.  You should be able to stick
the server in a broom closet and forget about it.  So long
as it's a broom closet with a DSL, cable modem, or for the
volume you're talking, even a 56K ppp connection.
