Good question - hmmm...

Let me send out the con alerts - that way only one alert is sent out per con. 

If you have a con, send  the info to me and if I haven't already sent out a con alert, I'll post the alert to the list. 

If you're going to a con and/or want to organize Rabbits at a con, feel free to post things to this list. Just try to include con name in the subject line so that Rabbits who want to avoid the noise can ignore that email. Also, even though it's been posted in a Con Alert, it's always good to include basic info like Place and Date or a  URL as a quick line w/in the email.

Thanks for helping me think that through Brian!

So, does this mean that if we're doing something related to a con
(like organizing Rabbit activities at the con), we should send it to
you first, and you should send out a con alert? Or should we just
send out a con alert in that format?
