Matt Atkins, the club's Membership Secretary, has been working his way through MailChimp's troubleshooting advice for avoiding spam filters. Please check your spam folders for the club's MailChimp emails - and try marking them as 'not spam' to see if that helps in future.
One of the things that, as a club, we are keen to do is further develop a strong identity and a sense of Devon Orienteering Club. How do we go about it?
