Other Ways of Getting Involved

A great way to learn more about dog agility is to connect with others. "Email Groups" are fun and easy to join. Basically when someone sends an email, it gets sent to the whole group (including you). You can read it, ignore it, or respond. If you respond, it will be sent to the whole group to read. Simply go the appropriate yahoo website link and register. You can register in as many as you'd like, but warning: the more you join, the more mail you get. Check with each group to see how "active" they are. Last time we checked, one of the larger groups was circulating only about a few emails a day. You can cancel at any time if you get too much mail. You can also make a setting in your email server (i.e. Outlook Express) to sort those emails into a special folder so they don't crowd out your regular mail. Then you can read them later.

Note: Some of these groups may not be up-to-date, so please let us know if you have any problems with any.
