Administration of this Group 

Yahoo requires that this group have one or more members who are designated as what Yahoo calls  "Moderators". 

But these designated "Moderators" for this discussion group normally do not review or approve messages before they get sent out.  If you do not want to be exposed to the freely expressed opinions of any member, you should unsubscribe from this group (see instructions). 

under Moderation -- In rare cases where a member has posted messages which do not support the purposes of this group, or a message which clearly violates the purpose or guidelines of the group, that member might be placed "under moderation", where each of their posted messages must be approved by a Moderator before it can be published to the other members or the web page. (Members who have a track record of posting helpful messages, or who make other valuable contributions to the Mid-Hudson skiing community, will often be allowed some "slack" in regard to the topics of their messages).

The "Moderators" will try to make a normal practice around the beginning of each month of deleting Messages from the Yahoo web archive which are a two months or more old.  

So if you want to preserve some Message for future viewing, you need to take some specific action to do that (such as make a copy on your own personal website).

For questions or suggestions about the administration of this group, please send an Email to this address:
