ORE has a mailing list hosted through YahooGroups called ORE_bits (Aren’t we the punsters, eh?). The list is used to exchange information, hint and tips, as well as keep everyone informed of upcoming meetings and other functions in Ottawa that might be of interest to the group.
It’s low traffic, so don’t worry about being buried in email. If it does get to be a bit much for you, consider the digest version which combines many posts into one email.
The email list is the best way to keep on top of group going-ons.
