BayONet E-mail List

BAOC has an electronic mailing list called the BayONet. It's used by club members to plan future events, discuss event results, and discuss the sport of orienteering in general. You don't have to be a club member to subscribe; once you join, you can send e-mail to the group, as well as receive all the messages sent by other members.

The BayONet also has a Web page at that contains searchable message archives, a subscriber list, subscription management services, polls, chat, and file storage (for photos, maps, etc.). Access to the Web services requires a Yahoo ID (you don't need a Yahoo ID just to use the mailing list).

If you already have a Yahoo ID, then you may need to associate your subscribed e-mail address with your ID; go to Account Info at and follow the instructions. If you want an ID, then go to and make a Yahoo ID. Then there are a few steps to associate your new ID with your subscription to BayONet; follow the instructions at, or contact the if you need help.

Monthly Schedule E-mail

Once a month, an announcement of upcoming events is sent to a list of subscribers to that service. This list is administered like the one for the BayONet, but the addresses are different. Unlike the BayONet, however, only the list administrators can post messages to the list.

Like the BayONet, the Events list has a Web page at It contains the most recent announcement, both as the original email (but with the formatting corrupted [Thanks Yahoo!]) and as a downloadable file. Access to the file requires a Yahoo ID (you don't need a Yahoo ID just to subscribe to the mailing list, or to access the latest message on the Web page). See above for more information about Yahoo IDs.
