I'm trying to get a list of the 15 dealers attending the Indiana Stamp Club Spring Fair this weekend. The club website appears not to have been updated since late last year, the page for the spring fair doesn't list any dealer information (DUMB!), and nobody replies to emails sent to any of the several email addresses on the website (MORE DUMB!).

I can't stand stamp clubs that are firmly stuck in the 1980s. I get that most stamp collectors are cranky old men and this newfangled Interwebz is just a passing fad that will never catch on, but seriously, COME ON NOW!

No excuse for it at all.

*harumph*

That's not a very polite way to get a response from them either.

Local clubs are staffed by unpaid and often unthanked volunteers who out in countless hours.

Oh well. My first several emails to them were quite polite. How many attempts was I supposed to make?

If you don't use email on a regular basis, then you shouldn't be a contact person for an organization. There are base levels of communication that should be expected in the digital age.

P.S. I do the website for my local club gratis, so I know perfectly well how that works, so spare me the lecture.

Good, then you would understand that flogging volunteers in public is poor form and you would not appreciate it being done to yourself.
I will see if I can nudge them.

John, if I were not fulfilling my obligations as an officer of the organization, and not responding to someone who wants to come to their show and spend considerable amounts of money, thus making their dealers happy, I would *HOPE* that someone would call me out. I would need it!

Thank you.

I just sent a note out to see if we can get some information. Hopefully, they will update the site, but I also asked for a list and will share here when I receive it.

Sometimes shaking the tree produces results after all. Thanks.
